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.

Cub trailer (hauler)

Postby gcbailey » Fri Oct 28, 2011 7:26 pm

Made a trip to Vinton, VA today to pick up a work in progress cub trailer. It needs some work as you can tell in the pics, but it's good an solid and for the price I think it's not too shabby. It's gonna be a shared trailer, so hopefully it will end up tricked out some.

Looks like you are starting with a real solid foundation. Can't wait to see the finished product. :D :D

Very nice Gary, I like them right at that stage so you can build what you need.
Have you decided to go out over the tires with the floor or pick up a set of fenders ?

Yogie - I haven't decided yet, I've been trying to browse a bunch of different pics and get ideas. I do have a friend who wants to put a dove tail on it, not going to complain about that. He's does welding/fab for a living, so I trust him.

Red - I don't really know.... the title states "Appalachian" as the manufacturer and was made in '93.

Appalachian makes a variety of equipment, dump and utility trailers.

well I've finally got a chance to get some progress pics on the trailer..... about all that's left is wiring, painting and the deck. It's about 5'10"....... plenty for a cub, and maybe one day I'll get to move up a size or two and get something a little bigger on it.

I've got it tarped, but sheesh flash rust is a killer. I've had a couple people tell me that I should think about using a truck bedliner coating instead of paint, thoughts or suggestions on that?

A lot of new steel hanging off the back. We did something similar and found the ride qualities changed so much that a 100 lb tractor weight now rest on the front of the trailer.

Man, that is one heck of a heavy duty trailer! I hope you have a big truck to tow it!

well that tube in the front, behind the box..... it's filled with lead shot. It's actually balanced really good.

My trailer had a 2' beaver tail added by a PO, while it's quite functional it was not done nearly as gracefully as yours. It looks like your friend did a nice job. I have no idea how mine towed before the addition but I always try to keep my load ahead of it and get along quite well.

Gary,

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,
David

If it were me, I would add a rub rail outboard of the stake pockets. Gives lots more flexibility in placing tied downs.
