Fancy talking tape measure, uses screwdriver to mark lines........🤷‍♀️
DEBOSS GARAGE (8 days ago)
Show me a pen or a pencil that makes as thin a mark as a screwdriver and leaves a mark on old steel and never needs to be sharpened or never dries out

Nice build its amazing to me you can find those fenders for 15 bucks these days. I liked your hinge set up On the fender 30 years ago i bought some used. Piece of junk trailer to move. My motorcycle one time i lived in Florida and the State made me. Put fenders on it to comply with requirements i told the. Inspector my intentions for the trailer and i didnt want to spend much money he asked me if i knew how to cut 2x4’s and i said yes he said make them out of that and just screw them on he didnt care if they were. Pretty or not just that they covered the tires they weren’t pretty at all but i got my tags. And gave it to someone after i got my motorcycle where i wanted it for the return trip. I built. A contraption that fit in my receiver and took the front tire off the bike and used the axle to attach it to my contraption in essence the bike towed like a. Single axle trailer and i even wired the brake lights and turn signals to work with the tow vehicle harness it worked like a Charm for 1200 miles at around 60MPH it had a little wobble that i was able to take out by strapping the handle bars to the outside edges of the tow vehicle that was a CJ 7 Jeep with homemade bumpers i built for 4 wheeling that had plenty of anchoring locations I hope you have more videos similar. To the low cost trailer i just found your channel today and enjoyed your video. A lot i am a retired Woodworker thats interested in doing more welding and metal fabrication in the future my Dad taught me some basics on structual welding i can make it stay together usually but i need to learn how to make it prettier i did actually work at a Woodworking /Metal working shop That did lots of Aluminium Architectual welding and some of those guys were artists i of course was not a welder there or any other place although my Grand father was and he started most of his career doing body and fender repair years before fiberglass or plastic body filler ! My Dad had a Antique car my Gramps leaded all the dings out for a black lacquer respray of the main body i say that because it was a running board style car it turned out pretty cool

I think he mentioned that the side rails were galvanized , if they were , it should have been explained that welding galvanized metal is dangerous. I don't mess with galvanized metal, those fumes can really hurt you.

Same project building a small trailer.👍👌

I built my own trailer for hauling off road machines. One of my biggest complaints was whenever it got windy depending on the aerodynamic nature of the cargo, the trailer could get into a rhythm and want to fishtail. Now enclosing the whole trailer wouldn't help because the turbulence caused by my truck. So I thought, "well maybe I could add suspension to it, let's see where that goes". So I had to change a few things which added a little height, which was not ideal but I added air shocks that I could add air too depending on the load. No more fishtail...

Use a nail punch to round out the female part on the light. I used to drive truck and learned that trick from one of our mechanics.

We are considering building a custom bed for out mowing truck so we can ditch the utility trailer. It would hold one commercial 48 inch walk behind or stand on mower along with other tools of the trade. That's what I'd like to see.

Dump her if she makes you sell your truck. I've been married 18 years and had my '57 F100 before I met my girl. I told her to never make me choose between my truck or her. I will end up with my truck every time... EVERY TIME!!!

Smart man! I see you use the air supply respirator. There are so many videos with guys welding with no respirator and it short sleeve shirts. I think that's so irresponsible . We adults have to take in consideration that there are kids looking at these videos and we have to stress that if you're going to weld, you must use all proper safety equipment. That's the number one thing I learned in Weld School many moons ago.

I like the idea of the ramp that folds flat, always thought it was foolish to have that big sail sticking up creating all that drag.

What are you gonna do when those boards need replaced? You welded them tight in place.
benson420710 (2 months ago)
+Wild Man twice in 5 years? That's some cheap wood.
Wild Man (3 months ago)
DEBOSS GARAGE that’s hard to believe, since I use treated wood and as I already said, I only haul ATVs and sometimes yard brush. I don’t know anyone with a trailer that has used the same boards for 12 years either. BUT. Ok then.
DEBOSS GARAGE (3 months ago)
+Wild Man I replaced the deck on my float trailer 12 years ago and it still looks great, that's what I'm going on....
Wild Man (3 months ago)
DEBOSS GARAGE 20 years? Idk about that. I’ve replaced my boards twice in 5 years. I only haul my ATVs. The weather isn’t kind to wood sitting in the heat and cold.

for wiring routing install a pipe large enough to run the wiring through. I used copper tubing. Trust me at some point you will snag the wiring pulling trailer.
krazziee2000 (3 months ago)
I did the same thing with a camper trailer,,, I wish I had watched this first , some of you designs are cool and I wish I had done it that way,, oh well, metal .. I can change it .. thanks for the video..
tjlovesrachel (3 months ago)
Seems that when you turned up the welder to cut with it .... you were just turning up the wire speed.... the amp/voltage control was already maxed out
tjlovesrachel (3 months ago)
DEBOSS GARAGE you must be joking right ... you get my point I hope ... you did nothing to the heat... you just touched the wire speed
DEBOSS GARAGE (3 months ago)
Pretty amazing welder to turn up the wire speed on the stick!

Nice build out I do a fair amount of camping in private campgrounds in the US and ive noticed a lot of old pop ups in their long term storage that look like they are abandoned by the owners usually the tags are expired and they are pushed into the back of the lots i like vintage campers so i almost always look in the storage lots generally in the back of a campground property i specifically look for older Airstreams

Great Job and I did the same myself to haul stuffs with my Neon LOL. If it were only 50x100 inside the rails it would be perfect for drywall and stock lumber

Tent trailer frames are awesome for light duty trailers. We always scrounge them for using behind the quads or the side by side. Hell, they even come with a suspension to soak up the bumps.

New subscriber here. I really enjoy your videos but I'm curious, how do you get so dirty?
Timothy Stadlmueller (5 months ago)
Have you worked in a garage or construction? All that dirt and grease literally embeds into your callouses, and you usually sweat a lot, so dirt in the air sticks to you.
beastm0de7 (5 months ago)
I would not recommend grinding shit down with a cutting disk, It is not meant to be grinded with, It is meant to be cut with, It is way too thin for pressure to be put on the sides if you try to grind with it or you don't cut straight and you put tension on the sides of that disk and it cracks, it will break apart and go flying at your face.
SimonTek (5 months ago)
Wow, I think I have that exact same trailer.
Chris Kellokoski (5 months ago)
Hey Deboss, where did you get that voice recorder on your tape measure? I think that's engenious!
Daniel Krogh (5 months ago)
gonna be a wobly trailer look at the strength of the outside corners just a thin weld to hold it together bet that shit is gonna break in a couple of years
ThatOneGuy8199 (5 months ago)
don't grind with cutting wheels unless you want it breaking and flinging into your face

I often thought about building a own trailer like your's because it perfectly fits your needs. But i Live in Germany an every vehicle has to go to a check called "TÜV" every two years, and especially own build things hardly pass it the first time. Your trailer would be rejected the first time they see it :D Also the problem is own build trailers are more heavy. In Germany you are only allowed to pull 750kg otherwise the trailer needs own breakes, handbreak, breakaway cable, not too old wheels, wheel chock and a few things more. Also you will not get a 100km/h approval, becaus you must have independent axle with seperate damper [not flat springs] and ideally a anti-snacking coupling caus when you have a 100km/h approval you usually drive 120km/h [otherwise the other cars, which usualle drive between 160 and 250km/h on the middleline will urge you while you're overtakeing a truck ;) ] But really nice project and sorry for my bad english :|
