With these utility trailer plans, you will know exactly how to build a utility trailer from scratch. These are the plans to build the 5′ x 8′ version of the trailer. This is the exact same trailer I built in the photos and videos (except for the tailgate was a little bit different). I would consider this to be a standard duty utility trailer that is also one of the most affordable designs you can build.
In the utility trailer plans (below) I use a 3500 lb. axle so it will be able to handle just about anything you can fit in it. This set of plans comes with a full material list as well as a complete cut list so you can just take the plans, buy your steel, buy your axle and build your utility trailer. When you are finished you will have a much better trailer than you could buy at the local box store. It will cost quite a bit less as well.
Have fun and good luck with your project.
