    What exactly do you plan to haul with it and more importantly, how much is the load going to weigh?

    The Hazard Fraught trailer you linked to is only 870lb capacity and that's not a lot of wood at all. Let alone, mulch, pellets, stone, equipment (lawn tractor would be fine but a heavier-duty garden tractor would be pushing it.)

    IMO by the time you build the deck and sides for a $200 trailer, you're going to get close to what a much better trailer would cost. (unless you're using "recycled" materials of course)


    This one is $450 and has 2x the capacity of the HF unit. Same size deck.

    another $50 gets a rear ramp, handy for rolling up heavy rounds or loading equipment.

    Get a rear ramp. Roll up rounds, tractors, other trailers etc..... You can probably take it off if you don't need to use it. Great to have.

    I wouldn't bother with that trailer. 40" x 49" and if you made 36" walls (which is probably pushing it), is going to hold maybe 1/4 cord of wood, tow like crap, and be nearly impossible to back up.

    Trailers are like a garage/barn/shop. You always wish they were a tad bigger than you have.

    The thing I like about a small trailer is you could move with your car on trips to the store. Not so much for firewood hauling.

    You can pull a "real" 5x8 trailer with about anything. What is your tow vehicle?
