No Weld Rack Towers, Almost Here!

No Weld Rack Towers, Almost Here!

Only a few weeks left to wait! The first batch of the New No Weld Trailer Rack Towers is in the queue and expected to be complete around 10/17.

As with Thule racks, you will need crossbars to go with your towers. We designed the towers  to use the same 1.5" square tubing as No Weld Racks for crossbars. This keeps the crossbars budget friendly at under $40. The towers were designed with flexibility in mind, so many styles of aluminum crossbars with a bottom channel could be used with them.

The new Trailer Rack Towers are designed as a direct replacement for the Thule rain-gutter style tower we have been using on our Dinoot Trailers.   They were also designed to work on Utility Trailers, M416 Trailers and Teardrop trailers for adding lower height side attached trailer racks.  Basically any style trailer with a flat side can use these.

DIY Trailer Racks No Weld Trailer Rack Kit

The DIY No Weld Trailer Racks Bracket System we introduced earlier this year has proved to be a budget friendly way to build sturdy homemade trailer racks.

The system is based on Corner Connectors used for 90 degree joints and Base Plates for connecting the rack to the trailer. The other key component is 1.5” square tubing.  We are also working on new components and accessories to expand the functionality of the trailer rack system.  Build the core with two hoops with connector bars to create a solid rack structure.

There are many trailer rack applications that our No Weld Trailer Rack Bracket System can be used for.  Racks can be added to many types of trailers and they can be setup to haul many items such as Roof Top Tents, Kayaks, Canoes, Paddle Boards, Bikes, Cargo Carriers, and more.

How To Build a 4’ M416 Camping Trailer

How To Build a 4’ M416 Camping Trailer

We designed our Dinoot M-Series M416 camping trailer tub kits to have the same 40.5″ width that a M416 trailer has to be used as replacement tubs.  This also makes them the same width as a Harbor Freight 40.5″ x 48″ frame kit.  The Harbor Freight frames are perfectly sized for building a stubby 4′ M-Series M416.

Here is what a 4’ M416 camping trailer might look like:

M416 Trailer Build at home with a Dinoot M-Series Tub Kit

 

Here are a few ideas on how you could build one.

Using a Harbor Freight Haul-Master #62645 40.5" x 48" frame kit, I would first stretch the tongue with a piece of 2.5" square tube.

Add reinforcement plates where the tongue bolts to the cross-members is an important step.

Another possibility would be to make the tongue long enough for using a Harbor Freight receiver cargo basket as a front rack

The final piece is the tub kit.  Just like a full length M-Series M416 tub kit; you could build it with or without a tailgate.  We have done this for the 5' versions.  We cut the side panels to the proper length for you before sending them.

Here are the 6' and 5' version M-Series M416 trailer tubs.
