  3. Ingliv3, I actually picked up a trailer very similar to yours that I am modifying and building my center feed RF smoker on to. I started by removing all the extra pieces the hold the boat.

    It seemed like the way to go !!!! The axle alone is over 150$ plus hubs suspension. Then you have to buy the steel to build a trailer and the materials welding supplies. So this was way cheaper !!!

    Soon to become one!!!!
     
  6. Yeah I thought so too, I will still have some fab work to do because I plan on building a deck on the tail end of mine, but it is still way cheaper!!

    That's my plan. I want to deck it also to stand on the deck to do all my work
     
  8. I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes a long!! Good luck!

    After a few hours at the shop today and some influence from my coworker/helper we cut out two cross members and welded in three new ones

    Hope you didn't let that fire go to waste. What did you cook?

    Just a test burn had to make sure the design worked before sandblasting and painting and seasoning

    SMH...
    Sorely disappointed. Sure it burns, but can it cook?

    Just kidding, git-r-done and get us some Q-view!

    I only had 8 pieces of wood left so that's what I burned. Like I said just a test fire I still need to add some air inlets tring to figure that one out ..
