Brother's Garage

 This is a trailer that my brothers, my Dad and I built so I had a way of  transporting big loads as I only own a car.  It has a tilt bed so I can slide heavy loads onto the ground.  We built everything except the fenders and springs.  We even built the axle, those wheels and hubs are off a Ford Tempo.

I had the cover made to fit this trailer as I regularly haul loads to my parent's house, around a 900 mile trip one way.  It makes life much easier.  I made one trip (in a rainstorm) before I decided I needed a good custom cover made.
