The 4.8m Flat Top Trailer is a full width trailer bed extending over the wheels to give the maximum load area possible. With a max ATM of 3500kg and a TARE of 1000kg you have a generous load capacity of up to 2500kg. Flat Top Wide Bed trailers are often used as working platforms for onsite or remote jobs. The plans will provide all the necessary drawings, instructions, parts lists and handy tips to enable you to build with confidence, knowing your trailer will conform to legal requirements.
The Flat Top trailer can be built with traditional tie-down side rails, or if you prefer, side panels that give the trailer a clean stylish look. The front of the bed features a support frame to assist with locating and securing loads. The design also includes handy features like tie-down hooks, double safety chains and chequer plate bed. The assembly guide will assist you in the construction and give you lots of guidance on brakes, axles, suspension and other components.
