Dexter UTG demountable hub axle. One axle is a mobile home style, but not a mobile home axle. Yea the other one came from a mobile home. I think the difference is that the brake assembly is bolted on and not welded. Guess if I have problems I'll have to swap the hubs.

I see these type of axles all over on older deck over trailers.

Post a little progress.

Hitch and jack mounted.

You will also see some emt conduit in a couple pics. That is to protect the wiring for lights and brakes.

Well a year later and I finally finished the trailer. Ended up not doing the tilt part. Ended up 20' long. Still need to build some ramps, but feel good to be at this point as I can actually start using it!!!

Thanks, 95% of the trailer is recycled metal, so wasn't sure what to do with the fenders. I was going to buy some, but to buy heavy duty ones are over $200. So I just made my own. Left the back open so I can still tie down.
