Single Kart trailer- 4'x8' Harbor freight folding, 12" tires.700 - 800 lbs loaded.
The trailer is 5' wide by 8' long. 3' tall sloping down to 18" . The 3' portion is 4' from the rear towards the front.
I raised the floor so I could go to 5' wide. I used the holders for
the side rails to attach the 2x4's to. I notched (cut halfway through
each board) the middle cross beams for support and extended the ends
of the framing to 5'.
The deck is 3/4" pressure treated plywood. The sides, back door and
front are 3/4" A/C plywood and the top is 1/2" A/C plywood. The shelf
inside is 1/2" 7 layer cabinet grade plywood for it's rigidity.
The rear door folds over on to the top. and vents are installed on back doors at top.
front door folds back and has closed cell insulation installed to keep out water.
Top seam is calked and covered with a piece of st.steel. front lip is also st.steel
This support (middle cross beams above) has both 2x4's notched for added support
Hinge extensions allow the deck will fold up without the enclosure installed.
The flap on the shelf is on a piano hinge and folds up when loading
