The ground loading or ramp-free trailer is a simple flatdbed trailer that has the convenience of having a deck that lowers to the ground for quick, safe and easy loading of motorcycles, 4 wheel bikes, jetskis, furniture or just about anything that requires roll on/roll off loading.
Release the locking latch, unwind the winch and the rear end of the trailer lowers to the ground. On level ground the deck incline is a very shallow 6 degrees, and with the choice of either a fixed or hinging rear ramp, loading this trailer is a breeze!
The trailer has a tare weight of around 705 lbs and with a 2200 lb GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) can take a load of up to 1495 lb. These plans include the fitting of hydraulic override/surge disc brakes with reference to non braking if required.
The deck is 2.85m (9ft 4 1/2") long and 1.5m (5ft) wide with rear corner platforms for ease of access to the trailer and its load.
With quick fit accessory pockets positioned around the trailer, a multitude of accessories can be fitted quickly and easily.
Whether you need to convert from a 3 bike motorcycle rack to sides for moving some blocks or soil, or from moving your ride on mower to launching your jet ski, a couple of turns of the spanner and you effectively have a built for purpose multi tasking trailer!

Please note that the plans are dimensioned in metric including all steel section. If building with US dimensioned steel, always upsize steel hollow sections - never downsize! Be aware that the tare weight of the trailer will increase slightly.
