Cub trailer (hauler)

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

That is a Beast of a trailer for sure! Does it have brakes on one or both axles?

I have wondered about using bedliner paint on top of the normal paint job for the front parts of the trailer, including fronts of fenders. Mine take a beating from stuff that is kicked up from my truck.

Thanks for sharing,


it's got brakes on both axles. Hopefully it will be nice enough one day next week to get all the wiring done on it. I've got a nice stack of 8/4 16' oak planks ready to get mounted on it too.

Very nice Gary, I like all the extra work done on it especially the boxed in lights. I tore the lights off my new trailer the first time out while crossing a creek.
Moved them both up on top in boxes just like yours.

I agree with Don on the rub rails. Mine doesn't have them either and I've always wanted to add them.

Well, I know it's been a long time in posting some updates, but work has been well....work. I have a good friend who owns the local Federated/Fisher parts store, so he hooked me up with some spray on/roll on bedliner. I was originally going to paint it FA red, but for the price I couldn't pass the bedliner up. I don't think I'm going to have time to get it finished in time to take down to Boss' but hopefully here in a week or two it will be done. I've got 8/4 x6x16' red oak planks for the deck. I've still got a little more painting to do, and definitely need to get new tires. Also just got in the breakaway controller for it.

The red oak will work if that is what you have, But white oak would last longer I think. I used pressure treated 2x8 on mine, cause our local mills were all shut down when I needed it

Dale, hopefully a good treating of oil will help the oak last a while. There's a few mills around here that will deal with the "little guy" but even they aren't the best about going out and getting specific woods unless you are going to get at least 1,000 bd. ft. or more.

Gary, keep us informed on how the bedliner coating works out. I find it to be a pain, trying to keep paint on the tongue and the front of the fenders, maybe bedliner is a good alternative.

It seems to be real tough, I'm using the Duplicolor brand that has kevlar in it, for what it's worth... Like I said, for the price too, I can't complain if it doesn't last too long. The only thing that the instructions for the bedliner really stressed is that dry time is based on temperature/humidity and from what I've read on other forums that was the biggest complaint too, people having it peel off because it hadn't cured properly. The other big thing was ensuring the metal was properly prepped (scuffed up), and cleaned with xylol.

Trailer is coming along nicely.

Just a suggestion on the wiring: Don't think I'd use wirenuts on an exterior application. You might look into using a more sealed connector (something with heat shrink tubing) to protect your electrical connections from dirt/moisture. You don't want to have to get down on your back and crawl under there to try and find a short or bad connection later on. Just a thought...

I like the undercoating; should seal real good.

I have actually changed that. I just had that for test purposes to make sure I could hear a "click". I went wild on harbor freight heat shrink tubing on that thing.
