retractable wheels for fish house


rattlem'up

Question

I was just wondering does the wheels that you put on the house have to be the rear wheels off of a front wheel drive vehicle or doesn't it really matter?
Thanks

Welcome to FM. The wheels attach to a spindle. Spindle diameter is dependent on load rating. You'll see spindles attached to a set of leaf springs or with no suspension o ice houses.
Most front wheel drive cars are light and the rear spindle and leaf spring would be to light handle an ice house but yes that is basic design.

If you are new to this stuff, safety is a big issue. We recommend you have someone who knows what they are doing do it.

Trailers you will be taking on the road need to be well built by qualified individuals.

I see you are from glencoe. Willmar has a warehouse that carries just about anything you need for making a trailer. I put 3500 stub axles on my house and wouldnt put anything lighter than that on yours. You can also order a trailer right on this sight and they look very well built. I agree with rick that if you make your own safety comes first. Making it cheap to me is a hazard and waste of time if you plan on pulling it any distance. I would avoid using car spindles on a house of your size.

well i am making the trailer out of 2x2 1/8 in. wall square tubing for the oustide perimeter and the inside braces are 2x2 1/8 in. wall angle iron every 2 feet. The tounge is 3x3 square tubing 1/4 in. walls it will extend 5 ft. out from trailer and half way back. does that sound good to you guys.Dont worry my instructor has built trailers plent of times, he just wants us to figure out the materials and everything else.

Rattlem'up;

If you observe the frame, on the factory

houses your size, you will note they are

using at least 3" x 2" on the perimiter

and 3" cross supports.

Also 5' of tung extension seems excessive,

4' should give you enough turning clearance.

Good luck

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
