Custom Yota Hauler

Wanted the perfect Yota hauler so I built my own. 82"x24', dual 6k axles. I inset 4" channel in the deck and welded 12k D-Rings every two feet. Coupled with stake pockets and rub rail down each side. If you cant find a good place to tie down on this trailer you have no business tying stuff down.

Nothing like the first Road Trip when it all comes together .

No plans for a Winch ??

Now that you have the trailer all your friends will be wanting you to haul their non running projects.

All in all I would say about $2600 including all welding supplies etc. same trailer would run me about 5k new and it wouldn't be personalized. I do plan on a winch at some point

Well how did things work ??

Sometimes figuring out where to place the load can be the hardest part

It pulls great. I am going to change the length of the shackle straps to give me a little more room between the tires and fenders. ( I welded them in a tad too close and when the trailer flexes out it rubs a little) nothing that is a big problem and it can be solved easily. We adjusted the load a little on the trip home but it pulled great both 400 mile legs. I've got the center of the axles at 75/25 on the trailer and if I did it again I would do 70/30. It would make for a little less toung weight and would follow the truck a little tighter but that's splitting hairs. It's definitely a 3/4 ton truck type of trailer. The size of it you could overload a 1/2 ton pretty quick.
