Subject: Angle Iron livestock construction and holding tanks.


Posts: 6

Ive been shopping for a trailer and talking to K&O in Hull Iowa. They'll build me the narrow track axle option I want, but I just noticed the majority of the trailer is built from angle iron. I imagine this is common and helps keep the floor low. But cargo trailers and campers Ive considered have hollow spots in the frame for tanks and utilities because they use C channel.

This K&O pace setter is built like a tank with 20 gauge skin, 7k straight axles etc, but I'm not envisioning allot of clearance/protection for holding tanks. Or maybe my problem is the tanks will be more visible and exposed. And I also don't want 2x10's, but 3/4 plywood floor, which is just to exposed and low again.

Will converting a 7x16 livestock trailer into a toyhauler with amenities be more challenging than a cargo trailer because of the low slung angle iron construction? How are weekends done, but I wont have space for a tanks inside..
I'm thinking converting it will be more challenging, because I will have to build a raised floor, but the trailer is better suited for the yukon highway or maybe south america.
