Alrighty, final update I suppose until maybe I break something and have to fix it all.

I picked up some angle iron to finish off the trailer, I think it adds a finished look and will hopefully keep me from driving the quad or snowmobile off the edge.

The truck is all wired for trailer lights and working well, added a few grounding straps on the truck and trailer to hopefully keep everything working well.

The only thing I may add later is a snow shield up front to keep road salt off of what i'm towing and maybe some rubber or plastic runners for grip when loading.
The angle iron cost me $40 cash, and maybe a few bucks for a can of spray paint.
In total i'm into this full trailer for less than $350.



I suppose now it's time to load the thing up and go play in the woods. Come onnnn winter!

I know Home depot or lowes sells returned paint at a discount, maybe paint the wood to protect it, and maybe spray some undercoating on in the tread area so your quads can get a grip.. that's what came to mind anyway... not sure if it would suit your needs or conditions, but you did build a nice functional trailer

It's pressure treated lumber, shouldn't need to be painted.
I'll keep an eye out for some used rubber floor mat's or something to lay down for grip.
