TEARDROP TRAILER – BUILD DAY 19

ASSEMBLING THE IRONTON  5×8 TRAILER

A while back I ordered an Ironton Heavy-Duty 5Ft. x 8Ft Trailer Kit  from Northern Tool. Karen helped me bolt together the trailer kit today which will serve as the platform for the teardrop and provide important details like DOT approved lighting and tires.

DELICATE WORK
A thoughtful and careful approach is always prudent.

INSTRUCTIONS AND BEAR
After hacking the packaging apart with trusty ole’ Bear, we inspected the instructions which were reasonably good with occasionally humorous Engrish.

SUSPENSION
The trailer sits on a pair of leaf-springs, which should help this thing bounce over dips and bumps.

I’m curious how this handles once it’s on the road. I think I can add some shocks later if the ride is a bit too bouncy.
