I am interested in building a frame for a mullins trailer and can find several god body kits and axles, but I want to get plans for building the frame.  It is much too expensive to ship the frame.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Looks like you should be able to take any flatbed trailer and cut it down to fit, may have to move the axle a little.
If you have any places that build (cargo/enclosed) trailers near you. They may have a unfinished OR can build you one.
I'd measure the minimum width you need between the inside of the tires to start with.
Harbor freight, Lowe's, home depot all have flatbeds.

Thanks, I did receive the attached plans with measurements.  Maybe I can find one close.

When I built a trailer for my '32 some years ago I used axles/wheels from Tractor Supply.  If you can weld then that plan would be a snap to make.

Axles, hubs and springs can also be purchased at northern tool and several sights on the web. Doing searches I have found trying to find 5-4.750 hubs for a light weight axle is hard to come by. The 5-4.5 is the common pattern
