Building your own boat trailer is the best way to get an exact fit to suit your boat. Even if you can't weld, you can still use this book to plan your boat trailer for local assembly by your own welder, and still save money. It covers everything, including axles, hubs, wheels, brakes, tires, springs, couplers, frame construction methods, and much more in easy-to-read non-technical language. It even covers handling, launching, retrieving, and maintenance.

If you have had bad experiences with stock trailers, such as poor tracking, or beating the bottom out of your boat, solve the problem by building your own trailer the correct way as shown in this book.

"With the help and advice from Glen-L's Trailer Book, I was able to totally rebuild my new trailer, make proper bunks to support the hull, and add keel guides for easy retrieval of my "Micro". This book is an absolute "must-have" for anyone who wants to know how to adjust the load on his trailer, how to move trailer axles to achieve better balance and tongue weight, etc. For me it was a Trailer Bible and I just want to let others know that it is a wonderful and data-filled book that will solve any trailer problems that you might have." Conbert H.
