Making utility trailer from a pop up?

Ok, so Iv been busy latly, and my latest adventure is moving, well soon. Also i bought a 04 Polaris Sportsman 700 ATV, and now i need a trailer for both. after looking I came acrost a 7 by 15 frame that used to be a pop-up camper. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experiance with these? I know the frames arnt the best on them, but I figured enough for 2 ATV's and some small tools.

heres the c-list: http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/rvs/1246048194.html

I e-mailed him and it needs new wood and lights. tires are fair, and I asked about the frame but still waiting on that one. if anything i figured maybe making a toy hauler out of it, put a little makeshift room on the front and sit one ATV between the wheels if theres room (should be!)

How would this pull behind my 4.3 blazer? 92 4x4 auto. I pulled my 4x8 with my polaris no problems, but this is a bit bigger. lol

Just looking for any input! thanks.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

I would strongly negotiate the price down. I agree with THEGRIFF looks pretty run down.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

Around here you can get usually get old pop-up tent trailers for free. (My dad recently just picked up another one.) He strips the camping part and then goes to Harbor Freight to fix any lights or replace tires and usually installs flip down ramps and then resells the trailer for a few hundred dollar profit.
Try putting an ad in CL and say that you will remove any old trailers for free. He usually gets a few responses each time he does it.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

Oh yeah, he used to pull them home with a 95 S-10 4cyl Auto. It pulled okay and could still go okay on the highway. I would think a 6cyl should be able to pull it without a problem.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

This actually turned out to be a fun project. I finally am olmost finished with the trailer, just a few minor things, but here is kinda a build up:

brought it home:



Started to pull it apart:



Welded a C Channel on back for support and to mount the lites in (this was only the temporary setup, its better now.)



And the olmost finished product:



New Hitch and Jack:



How it's gunna be used:





This actually turned out to be fun, had my nephew help me alot, and he was thrilled. I stuck right at about $600-700 into it all total. Frame was $100, wood was about $100, mounting hardware all total (bolts, C channel, ect) was probably another $60, lites were about $50+ (All LED lites, 4 running down each side, t tail lites, and a 3 lite strip in the back center), gas to drive around and get everything... yea, I stuck a little money into it, but I think it was worth it.

Without those fenders, it would be big enough to haul that Metro.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

Tip on tieing the fourwheeler down. Its not a good idea to use the winch like that because the lock that changes it from freespool to locked is made of plastic and the constant slack and tension while bouncing during travel tears it up fairly quick. At least thats what WARN told me when i brought mine back for warantee.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

Turned out much better than I thought after seeing the first picture of it. I would probably go overboard and bolt the four wheeler down in six - eight places.

Looks good.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

Actually it might be a good idea to add some sort of storage to the front of the trailer.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

i'd get those tie down points that recess in so they dont stick up when you arent using them. Looks good tho.

also for more utility make removable sides

98 Reg Cab S10--5/6 drop, Street Scene valance, headers, hard tonnau, welded in Sir Mike's Rollpan, Goodmark Cowl hood, shaved doors/gate, leather blazer buckets.....pretty sure i missed a bunch.

Hate to say it, but you could have bought a BRAND NEW trailer for 6-700. that thing is "newer" looking, but still looks home made and thrown together. No sides, out of proportion, flimsy looking.... Not trying to hate on you, just pointing out my opinion.

The **** I could! New, the biggest trailer I could find for $600 was a 5x8. a few feet bigger in either direction your talking over a grand...

Used there were all in worse condition, most of them needed to be redone anyhow, and were usually still more.

I paid 800 for my 14ft equipment trailer. Tandem axle, 14klbs (both axles rated for 7k). Thats a fairly normal price for around here too. You could have gotten a 10 or 12ft for about 600-700 around here. Also, a 5x8 would be MORE than big enough for that 4 wheeler. Its nice to have a trailer as big as yours, but its not going to hold much weight, so you will rarely be able to utilize the surface area of it.

well trailers are cheaper around there, and yes, 5x8 would have been good enough, but when i load 2 4 wheelers on, plus some tools that extra space will be nice.

your trying to tell me that trailer wont hold 2000 lbs? I have a hard time seeing that, the frame isnt the beefiest thing in the world, but it sure looked strong enough for that...

Yeah, but a trailer that big is capable of 6-8k lbs if you consider size only. If you wont ever need to haul that then its fine. FWIW I just got home from picking up a boat trailer about 5 min ago. Its a 20ft Tritan, and I pulled it home. Good tires and wheels too. I paid 60 for it.

You could have gotten a 10 or 12ft for about 600-700 around here. Also, a 5x8 would be MORE than big enough for that 4 wheeler. Its nice to have a trailer as big as yours, but its not going to hold much weight, so you will rarely be able to utilize the surface area of it.
damn thats cheap as hell for a trailer like that. even used that is cheap. the 5x8 trailers we have at work start at 600. and the quality of the new trailers suck. we have carry on trailers.

Quality depends on brand. Carry on is over priced due to the name. You can find a stronger trailer for the same price. the 14ft that I have would have been probably about 4500 brand new. 800 for it being used is a good deal, but not unheard of. I know of a manufacturer in FL that has a 14x7 enclosed trailer, V nose, ramp door and side walk through door for right under 3k. If you go to a high name store and buy the same trailer it is well over 5k. You can find used 14-16ft trailers in decent shape around here all day for 1k give or take a few hundred. That same carry on 5x8 can be bought used for about 400 or for 395 you can get it brand new from that manufacturer in FL. Trailers are one of those industries with VERY varying prices for the same product.

Re: Making utility trailer from a pop up?

Well I just went up north and pulled my trailer home, some one stole the surge break off of the front. so I pulled it home. Tore it down yesterday scraped the aluminum and made 360.00 bucks on it. trashed the rest. that cost me 27.00 bucks. Im left with a bare floor like you. Im going to make side ramps so you can drive 2 atv units on from the side. I welded a new tongue on the front and its rated for 2000lbs. the trailer if you knew the original model you can get an idea what the frame will handle. This one was a 1974 lionel 120 PVWR 1650lbs and GAWR 1388 lbs

Those charged with marijuana possession are Worthing High School teacher Sean Thomas, Wheatley High School administrator Gina Thomas and Whittier Elementary School teacher Susan Michael.

So it looks like they're targeting the teachers at schools that begin with "W."
