I've been running an 8x5 box trailer that I bought new years ago. Lucky my mower is light, as I often have to strap it down on top of a load of green waste....
Every time I've looked for a replacement there has only been rubbish for sale secondhand, and to buy new I'm looking at $7k and fetch it from Melbourne or $9k in Hobart.
Heavy duty axle kit with brakes, springs, wheels and hubs, drawbar hitch etc is a shade under $1k.
Less than $1k in steel and welding rods.
My winter project this year is to build by dream trailer.
I've been taking snaps on the phone of every nice garden trailer I see for inspiration. Partway through designing it in CAD now (I used to be a Draftsman in a previous iteration...).
