The Mother Of All Trailers.
Ok, a bit of over-use of the superlative there and can't hold a candle to some on the Indian sub-continent where they stack bulk loads 15 feet high but possibly about as big as anyone in the UK is ever going to need - I present to you a 300L trailer:-









A £40 garden storage box...
...with a cheap socket set UJ and a pair of 12mm thru-axle wheels I picked up on ebay for the princely sum of a tenner including the slicks and inner tubes. All cobbled together with some 200x100x2mm stainless plating that cost me sub £14 ready cut, again off ebay.
The box is fairly rigid on it's own so I forwent the usual chassis and am relying on the box itself to act as a monocoque. Should easily get a full week of family shopping in there!

Nice one!
Out here I could run hay from the field to the chicken coop with that, or bush up tot he campfire.

Reminds me of the trailer I made for the original marauder... recycled u-joint from an old socket set!

Looks like a splendid result.
Do keep us all posted on its usefulness as time goes by.
