We start with CNC cut 3/8″ steel base plates that are powder coated and attached to the chassis using 1/2″ Stainless Steel U bolts. This attachment process makes the tailgate an option that can be added at any time.
Welded to the 3/8″ plate is a 3500# stub axle where we hang a spare hub and bearings that match the trailer. This gives you a spare hub complete with bearings and grease in case of emergency!
Then our tailgate is attached with spare lug nuts to the hub.
On the tailgate hangs your spare tire, a 36″ by 18″ grained 304 stainless steel flip down table. Newly added is a Turtleback Trailers logo cut Roto-Pax/Jerry Can mount plate. Holding it all closed is a stainless steel locking clamp.
The design is low rattle and stout. Come on by and check it out!!
