I'm sure someone on here has built there own trailer at some point or another. I'm curious what you used for suspension. I built this trailer today, but it's just 2 rods going though the frame. Zero suspension. At some point I'm gunna build a more refined, and fancy trailer. I'm looking for some ideas

I like that! Looks like it would make a great set up to put a 4 wheeler or side by side out back. Guess I'll be building multiple different trailers

I like the weed eater coil spring idea. Currently this is what this trailer will be used to move around. But I'd like to make one with actual suspension to move cars around.
I actually have a couple sets of those. They aren't bad. You may have to pull a leaf or two, depending on how heavy your rig is. The one I bought them for is really light.
I have a general lee project I think those springs would work great on. Thanks for the tip
