How To Build A Tilt Bed Utility Trailer?

Cut all of the chassis steel components, lay them out, then solidly weld them together.

Weld the additional chassis cross member 4 inches forward of the axle’s position.

Place the trailer tongue tubing in the U-channel so that one end of the tubing is even with the channel.

With the tubing snuggled into the U-channel/tongue steel, drill a 5/8-inch hole 2 inches from the end of the channel. On the U-channel, center this hole halfway between the top and bottom. Drilling both pieces of steel at the same time ensures that the holes are perfectly aligned.

To keep the holes lined up, insert a 5/8-inch bolt into the newly drilled hole through both the tubing and the U-channel.

Drill a second 5/8-inch hole in the U-channel, this time enclosing the tongue tubing. Drill this hole 2 inches from the U-opposite channel’s end, centered halfway up and down. Drilling both pieces of steel with one stroke of the drill press ensures that the holes line up exactly, just like before.

When the trailer is upright, center the U-channel on the bottom of the chassis cross member immediately ahead of the axle and on the underside of the cross member at the front of the trailer deck, with the open end of the “U” facing down toward the ground. Weld the U-channel to the frame and cross member securely.

With a 5/8-inch bolt, secure the tongue at the end of the U-channel under the trailer, then lock it in place with a 5/8-inch hitch pin in the holes directly front of the trailer’s deck. The tilt system pivot point is the 5/8-inch bolt, and the hitch pin is the lock-down mechanism.

Attach the suspension, axle, and wheels, as well as the sides, tie downs, jack-stand, lights, fenders, and any other special features to the trailer.
