    Well, here is it. 18 hours of hard work, $500 worth of wood and a trailer than can haul amost 3 times more than before. It is mad eout of all PT 2X4s and plywood. The sides are just shy of 5.5' and it has a roof. It makes it so much easier now. We have a side door for a ramp we dump all the manure and shavings into and barn doors on the back. All the doors hook to the sides for dumping. I have wires it for lights on the inside so I can see what I am doing at night. I think it came out really well.

    Much cheaper than buying a new trailer.

    The doors were a pain to make, but came out pretty good. Last pic:

    Hahaha, yeah. I only basically haul horse manure and saw dust, so it isn't really heavy. Not nearly as top heavy as I thought.

    No, that is the only downside. Somewhere down the road we are going to make a way to do that. I am going to be making a big ramp for the tractor and have like a hatch or something in the way. Right now the trailer is used everyday to haul the manure, so it has been hard to take it for other jobs. My buddy has a 6x12 that he allows me to use when needed, so for now I'll use that when I need to load into a trailer with the tractor.
