Alphabet Soup - Trailer Designs

The letters of the alphabet, it turns out make nice homemade canoe trailers.  The designs shown below include an "A" frame, a "T" frame, an "H" frame and a "V" frame.  These letter style trailer frames hold canoes quite securely, aren't difficult to build and can be done on a budget. All you need is an old used trailer to build on, because if you're like me, you don't want to build the actual trailer frame.  I might rewire an old one, but wheels, tongues, frames and axles I like to leave to the professionals.
