Started my trailer fetish the other day. I wanted a tandem 17x8 trailer to pull. I had some aluminum cut, I think it is comes out to a 20 footer in tenth scale.

Wood deck held in by 1x7mm nails, tandem axle, standard ball hitch, and some hooks. Stamped RC4wd beadlocks with RC4wd Dirt Grabbers. Working on tail lights and red and amber side running lights. It will be painted black and I may put some reflective tape on it. The leds will plug in the bumper via a male/fwmale servo connector where it will get its power.

After the deck is done, I will figure out the leaf springs.

My next trailer will have side rails and a blower cage, a working gate, and weedeater rack. I plan on a smaller single axle, some tandems open and closed, and a tripple fifth wheeler for my F450 when it arrives. The fifth wheel will be able to hold all three Nitro Rs4s at once.

Are those the 1.55 wagons? I have a set as well. I started designing a trailer 2 years ago. That was as far as I got. Will be watching this one.

These are the 1.55 wagons. They been sitting so long I thought they were 1.9.

I am half way done printing this trailer.
I'm gonna make it a left, right, or left and right flashing arrow. The second will be a lcd screen.
