Building a trailer

Many people have a go at building themselves a trailer. The results are often exceptional. Preparation is the key to success and understanding the rules and regulations.

Many questions need to be answered before the first weld is made. Will I need brakes? What brakes should I use? Is a square axle better than round? What size should it be? Suspension? Leaf, shackle, independent, rubber? What about if I want to go offroad?
