    I made one out of wood because metal would be just to heavy i think. but if i were you i would see if i could see if i could get a piece of metal rod or a piece of strait break line and drill holes in each end and put body clips through each side so the wheels can't come off. or if you have some old 1/16 axles and could come up with a way to attach them to the trailer you could just bolt the wheels on to the axles. in the end mine was able to pull 13lbs with the stock vellinion system geared 16/55 and with the tranny "flipped".

    I kind of want one for my Spartan but it would be near useless because the 1/16 is small and I have to place to back the boat in.

    Yes, but the weight is not the problem. The 5 inch rudder is.... It would have to be raised... If I did get the trailer it would turn out to be the stand for it....
