Check Tractor Supply Company. They have great prices for basic trailers.

for cheap and adequate, its tough to beat the little harbor freight trailers
this should be about what you're looking for
http://www.harborfreight.com/870-lb-...res-42708.html
40x49, 870lb capacity and $179 new plus you can usually find a 20% off any single item coupon pretty easily

I have one of these I put a 3/4" plywood deck and a couple of chocks on and use for hauling motorcycles

and here's one with the car top carrier kinda rig already part of it

I have the same 4'x8' that venom has and I use it to carry riding mower or motorcycle on, it works great, I think I paid around $230, they bolt together! I'm actually thinking of welding it all together, swaping axles, lifting it and making it an offroad gear hauler......I will probably never get around to it but I would like to

HANG ON TIGHT...I SAW THIS IN A CARTOON ONCE...I THINK I CAN DO IT!!

Ive seen the harbor freight trailer, i was just looking to see if someone had one they didnt use.
I picked up a roof top cargo carrier off the side of the road someone didn't want anymore.
I'm going to put the carrier on top, lift it ,use same wheels and tires as the jk, and mount another spare off the back of the trailer.
Something that wont take up space in the garage and i can keep all my camping/wheelin supplies in it.

Upgrading my snow bear trailer to run Rubi takeoffs-Just needed a new set of hubs and wheel spacers and am good togo-Based on the amount $ for a new one I would go that route since you would have to overhaul any used one you pick up just for peace of mind.

If you want to use rubi wheels, you're gonna have a couple hundred bucks in any trailer since you're gonna have to buy hubs.
And if you're going to lift it, there's gonna be more money and fabrication.
Sounds like you may be better off just buying an axle and some steel and making what you want to begin with.

Its $100 for an axle and $50 per hub so buying the parts to build would cost more than buying a whole trailer. I have some lift springs, 35's, and a millermatic.
