Those open beam trailers really are the best. No place to trap the water and that is just exactly what you want. I wouldn't touch another boxed style again just because they rot away no matter how you treat them because of their always having trapped moisture inside the frame. This type is so easy to access inspect and do spot repairs that they can literally last a lifetime.
What did you paint that with ?

So far the workmanship is tops. I really like that you stripped it right down to nothing and then started putting it back together. Buying the parts you need will be very expensive so re purposing is the way I like to go. I don't agree with avoiding pressure treated lumber for this project as you need to carpet it anyway (bunks). I am building my trailer now and appreciate the pictures to go by.

That is an interesting point. With the separation between the woods chemicals and the aluminum just separated by that nice wet carpet will there be any kind of reaction. Personally I don't have a clue but who knows it might. I think I would go with a plastic cover and not chance finding it out the hard way.

Too bad I am leaving. We could have hit the Chick or Watts Bar.

Well now that I have tagged out on bucks this year and the last spilt of duck season starts Saturday I guess it's time to get my butt in gear. Got the axle mounted and hubs installed. The trailer look like and is built like a tank. Image
