Far out.

thats great!!

I have registered trailers before in the past, only donw single axle ones, been told tandem are a bitch to register as you have to go for engineers cert, blue ship, road worthy etc....

Maybe VIC laws are different?

Thought it was the same here in WA. Went and spoke to the vehicle Inspector.
All I have to do is aply for a VIN number plate. As long as it's built to plan it's OK.
Been thinking for a while now about building a new trailer. 10x6 tipper.
Easier to get the fire wood off.

Tippers are good fun to build.

Last month i built a 9x5 tipper for a hire company. Offroad type with 500mm high sides.

Cheers.

heres a pic of my new machine, and the black thing is what has kept me from my buggy, made some custom front and rear guards and a front cowl to cover all the shitty engine bits, painted the rims, went to town on this bad boy, had it all in bits, had to take the tyres off too
