I builded a small trailer for use with my T. Made from a front axle and a lot of other T Parts. Selfmade wheels and so on. Building time 1 year (200 hours)
See pictures and a video on my website

Very well done. I like it!
The videos aren't playing for me. "An error occurred. Please try again later."
Very good Michael !
Steve, it works now....
Great job! And just a reminder to anyone using the front axle for a trailer -- be sure to keep the correct spindle on the correct side. You want the outside wheel bearings to loosen as the trailer goes forward. So if you flip an already correctly assembled front axle around, you need to swap the spindles so the bearings do not tighten as you go down the road. It doesn't do it every time (if it did -- that would be easy for all of us to remember. But I've seen hubs spilt by the bearing being tightened onto the hub when the wrong spindle was used.
From memory - not as good as it once was. I think another alternative would be to use the Model A 1928-31 outer roller front wheel bearing. It is not threaded. (I would not recommend that for use on a car although some folks use those -- but on a lightly loaded trailer they should work fine.) I may have remembered that incorrectly -- so if someone knows for sure -- please chime in.

I like it! Have you weighed it? How easy is it to pull? The video's don't work for me either. I get the same as Steve. Anyway very nice.
Sehr gut. Es ist schön.
Video came through fine for me. I am sure others would like a picture of the trailer hitch you made.
Great trailer, love the rider.
Dave is showing off, speaking German. We were at GermanFEST yesterday and he couldn't help it.
Rob would have loved coming for the beer and brats and riding a Model T in the parade. Nebraskan's are welcome. Perhaps some day Michael can come to Milwaukee too.
thanks a lot. All people have a look at Paul (the rider at the trailer). The newest is that Paul have a Budweiser can and drinks good american beer :-))) I will post some pictures the next time.
Maybe at another stay in the USA we will go to Milwaukee :-)
Yes, Michael - more pictures, please - especially the hitch mechanism - trailer AND car.
If you like to see the hitch mechanism got to my website. There are all pictures:
The hitch is simply removable so that you only see it if the trailer is used. For that i turned the sparewheel holder 180 degrees.
If there are any questions....mail me :-)
Thank you !
