So I had an Idea. (btw this is just a what if idea it is by no means going down anytime soon if ever lol)

Would it be possible to take a flat bed heavy metal hay trailer and convert it into a working horse trailer? Use the flat bed as the base and cut and weld up walls/ ramps/ dividers/ doors/ windows/ etc.? Just whatever you wanted! You could totally customize one with whatever you wanted to add into it. Everything from living quarters to easy access doors, suicide doors, tack compartment with saddle racks and bridle pegs. You could add tie rings where ever you found necessary. You could include slants the horses had to back out of or a full stall size spot to turn them around or to put them in for over night trips. You could even choose between reg. hitch or goose neck based on what flat bed you start with.

It was just an idea I had. And I figured anyone with Good cutting and welding skills could handle it. So I figured I would ask and see what others thought of the idea. :D

Yes lol it def wouldnt be something that could be done quickly...takes to much time. Ive just always sorta wanted to try it. Im excellent at cutting metal, i do real nice clean cuts with the cutting torch. (yes very strange talent for a girl) Im going to be learning to weld. My brother makes some of the prettiest welds ive seen around here (I keep bugging him about becoming a welder) and he is going to teach me.

If ever one day money in not an issue for me ive decided I would love to make a custom trailer. Ive got fantastic plans for one too...im going into the design field so drawing up the plans was fun lol even if its only a dream. Ive even got a friend with a flat bed...its the one i decided i liked enough to base my plans off it lol.

Yes lol it would be a lovely project if money were not an issue.

Anyone else know what their perfect trailer would have in it? I might post up my designs just for fun.
