Have you ever wanted to put sides on your flatbed trailer?
In this easy DIY homesteading project video, Eric will show you How to Build Wood Sides for a Utility Trailer or flatbed trailer. Utility trailer modifications can be intimidating, but with a little planning, they can be quite simple.
If you’re looking for a step by step plan on how to build utility trailer sides, this may not be for you. However, if you’re the kind of homesteader who can see something being built and take the idea and run with it then this is for you.
We started with a 20 foot Big Tex utility trailer and some reclaimed 2×6’s. It total, the wood side trailer upgrade cost less than $20!
Now for the Tools I mentioned.
I price checked amazon.com vs Lowe’s for the Irwin Quick Grip Clamps and they were very comparable in price. I would recommend getting them locally if you can but I totally understand getting free 2-day shipping on your orders from amazon prime. Having said that I cannot find the one that I am using in this video on amazon prime.
