    Make sure that wherever you get the plans from that you get "good" plans as a trailer that big and esp with 4' sides adding quite a bit to the overall weight will require that you ensure the balance and weight distrub is correct. Otherwise you'll have a mess towing and controlling it.

    Thanks i like the pics of your trailer! How long is it? I am looking for a trailer like that but four foot sides like the big tex trailers and various others that make that trailer. If i can only get plans for a 18ft that would work too. thanks
