    Here are a few pics of the frame, with the stock deck, the axle end and how the frame was welded together.

    The frame is 36" long overall
    The axle is 16" wide in the center with 3" axle bolts welded on either end for a total width of 22".

    The deck is 28 1/2" long
    And 20 1/2" wide with the front tapering down to about 15"

    The deck mounting holes are 20" apart front to back and 13" apart from side to side.

    It came with metal fenders that screwed to the deck over the wheels.

    I modified the original tongue by cutting off the tab with a hole in it to attach to the Goped scooter mounted hitch. I replaced the tab with a Flex connector from Burley Bugger Trailers (see link) and used one of their bike hitches drilled out on my scooter. I connect the two with a long shank lock. I made my own rectangle deck and added stake sides along with ADA Billet wheels.

    Home made trailer by me has suspension and a sway bar its narrower than a towped and its longer so i can still get through tight places the suspension really helps with control over rough surfaces and keeps it from jumping around as much.. i still need to make the fenders then it will be done. Its 16" wide by 49" long

    Would skateboard trucks work for the axles?

    Too Cool^^^^

    I wanted to do a tandom axle towped (or a tandom axle dually set up ideally) that would pull a goquad or even another ped but that one got tossed out for other projects. Would be cool to see someone do a tandom towped though.
