I use a box trailer a lot behind a quad bike. My trailer has a pretty long draw bar but it still hits the tyres when turning moderately hard.
Thinking of making a box trailer with a straight single draw bar similar to the army ones so I can turn harder. Is this legal in Vic? Only trailers I have seen like this have been army.
I have a tandem Jetski trailer that has a single draw bar and cradle for the ski and the box for the axle was all u-bolts so you could slide it along to get the weight right. Built by Holroyds in Melbourne and legally registered in Victoria.
My last home built box trailer has an extendible drawbar.
Normal "A" frame dimension ends in a fabricated box section of suitable I/D to take the 65 square rhs drawbar.
When closed up the bar runs back under the trailer and when extended she's as long as you want.
Sliding section is retained by two drop in pins through sleeved holes in the RHS.
Electrical wire wraps around the extension bar like the old timber jinkers.
