4 ft x 7 ft utility trailer with 2 ft high sides and tailgate. Tailgate is quickly and easily removable for loading heavy loads up the ramp.

I re-built it to move my belongings from Florida to New Mexico last year and used heavy 5/16" eye bolts with washers to secure the plywood to the steel rails. They double as a solid attachment for ratchet straps for open loads.

Also installed 1x2 strips around the inner upper edge to give a mounting surface for a sheet of plywood to keep the thieves out at night on the 3 day, 1700 mile trip. I fastened that sheet of plywood down with 32 #10 x 1½" screws.

I hit huge rainstorms across Louisiana and my load stayed dry.

2 long screws lock the lift-out tailgate in place....also to help foil thieves.

Tires are new 18" heavy duty 1000# rated and have just 2,000 miles on them. Bearings are freshly packed and showed no overheating on the trip. Licensed for 2023 in New Mexico.

Tail lights work fine and connection to car is a standard flat 4 plug with standard color code throughout. Grounds are solid. Parking jack is a swing-away with no need for endless cranking to raise it.

The trailer sits level with my 4Runner and tracks like it's on rails with no swaying - tho' that's as much a factor with loading the weight forward. Even empty, there's no swaying - no tail wagging the dog.

If paid in full, I will deliver within 100 miles of Silver City, NM.
