This was originally a flatbed trailer with a motorcycle rail on the bed. Bed is 5 foot by 8 foot long. Built the sides to make it a more versitile trailer. The sides can be easily removed by taking out pins that go through the side supports that extend into the steel trailer bed. The tailgate hindges down to unload and works as a ramp for loading or unloading and can be removed as well as the hinge bolts are tapped into the frame of the trailer. The color is Ebony Solid Color Exterior Stain.

Nice one. It is touches like making the color match the truck and the chamfers on the verticals that make this an extra special project.
