In this installment of the Army Trailer build there is more wiring, the brakes and bearings and tires get sorted, as well as the whole tie down situation. Why? Because the first tracked vehicle is getting loaded onto this bad boy! There is still plenty left to do after these two videos though, even though it seems like it must be nearing the finish line. This is a very simple build on paper, but there is a lot going on with this one. Check out the two videos below.
This M1083A1 trailer build is pretty impressive. Building a triple axle trailer at home is in itself a pretty impressive project, but to take that on with the goal of adding a flatbed from an M1083A1 so he can tow it behind his army truck is taking badass to another level.
It has triple 5,000 lb torsion axles going under it and the design is pretty simple. He is calling it a short and simple build, but the videos are good because they show each “step” in the build. If you haven’t ever built a trailer, this is a good video series to watch. It’s not rocket science, that’s for sure, but you want to make sure that your axle spacing and locations are right so that the trailer will pull right and not sway. This is important regardless of the trailer size, but can you imagine one like this being set up wrong and getting out of control while going down the road? That would suck out loud.
