ATV trailer modification

plans on how and why to modify the new ATV trailerThanks to Mak and Marco for the useful comments on my ATV trailer research post.

The current plan is to leave the walls off  when we put it together so I can build a frame that will hold 5 gallon buckets. My thinking is the way it is might hold 6 buckets, but if we had a frame that allowed each bucket to extend out then the total goes up to 9.

Mark, Be cautious about leaving off the walls. I have a trailer just like the one in your photo. Even leaving off the tailgate when loaded causes it to flex. I believe the walls add significant structural strength. Any framework you build to accommodate the buckets should provide similar rigidity. Good luck with your modifications.
