Default Show off your small trailers

There are plenty of threads where people show off their large trailers. But I'm interested in seeing what people have done with smaller amounts of space. If you have a 12' or smaller trailers, lets see what you've done!

Disclaimer: I don't have a trailer, and if I get one I'm going to have to shove it into a garage. So I'm curious what others have done. I'd especially be interested in seeing trailers that don't have the headroom to stand.

in texas just register it as a home made utility trailer. each state seems to have its own rules for trailers home made or otherwise so i dont know what pennsylvania requires. when it is on a trip my auto insurance covers it and when it is at home it is in the garage so it is covered by home inurance.

Dude if you like i can link you to step by step teardrop trailer plans. they are free and easy to follow. shoot me a pm and i will link you to the pdf there.

this trailer was a trial run with me making my own plans, figured if i was going to make mistakes i would rather do it on this one than to have it happen on the full sized one. well by the time this one was done my buddy wanted his garage back so the other one didnt happen.
