DIY Animal Trailer

Here is a easy way to make a DIY animal trailer, we had been looking to buy a animal trailer on craigslist for awhile. We have had to track one down the past several years to take our animals to slaughter. We had a old lawn trailer sitting out back and my buddy said, why not make that into a animal trailer? So we did, we moved it into his garage

Image

we removed the front and back panels

Image

and welded up a rail out of square tubing

Image

and welded that on top of the side rail

Image

we did the same on the other side and welded up the roof rails

Image

Image

Image

we bent over some metal

Image

and spot welded to hold in place

Image

and added another piece and drilled and screwed the perimeter and the seam

Image

Image

we put the front panel back on and welded the corners

Image

we welded some hinges on the back panel

Image

closes fine

Image

and welded on a simple pin lock

Image

Image

and it opens well

Image

we cut out a arch

Image

and welded it up onto the ends

Image

and painted it up, we used a liner product for the outside of the roof

Image

Image

Image

we cut some expanded metal to fill in the gaps

Image

Image

Image

the back part we just bolted on in case we want to remove it to load the lawn mower or such

Image

I’m pretty happy with it

Image

it should serve us well
