    Thanks for the replys

    for bulk hauling and debris removal there are 10 of the ratchet strap holders so im planing on cutting 10 2 x 4s 10in long and notching them 1/4 inch on each side so they will fit in the holders then make a frame with 2 x 4s and cover them with 1 x 6s to haul debris.

    i made the ramp removable.

    Sounds a little over kill for such a small trailer. I don't mean to be a Dick, but I would have thought you could have bought a trailer like that for under 5 or 600 dollars on craigslist easily. JMO

    Looks good though.

    Why buy used when you can build brand new what you and want how you want , with the satisfaction of building it your self ?
