He also got the dual tandem wheels.

I said it earlier but I realize that it's easy to overlook comments. The trailer is intended for another project related to the whole travel-and-living theme. If its primary purpose were to carry containers I'd go with a different design. But for my purposes a slight modification should allow it to carry a single 20 ft. container every so often.

Thanks! I have set a search on my eBay app to see if any come up for sale. I wasn't familiar with that company or those products but that's very similar to what I planned to build myself.

Why reinvent the wheel, right?
