    I have a 5X8 Cam superline trailer. It came with 2x4 stake holes. How do you atach the 2x4's in there the pockets have no holes to hold the wood. I plan to put 2 foot sides on it. I use it to haul junk.

    Also would a trailer dolly be able to handle my trailer to put it in my driveway? ( its in a alley way)

    Do the pockets have a bottom? That will hold them.

    If they do not, once your horizontal pieces are attacted the vertical will not be able to fall through.

    Its not can the dolly hand the trailer, its can you handle the trailer. If its on grade and heavy for you to handle you might get yourself into a bad situation.

    Hey take your 2X4 and set it in the stake hole about a foot and half. Drive a screw into the board at the top outside edge of trailer rail. Do this all the way around. Then add your boards to height. Then remove screw the side boards will hold from there. I have pics of mine in the OHIO THREAD. :waving:
