maybe we can make, like the axle collectors thread, a collection of trailer coupling systems. to make a base i have made a semitrailer coupling for semitrailers with steering. lxf please post your own ideas for trailers and semitrailers for giving ideas look this vid
This trailer is the first MOC I have developed. It is not based on any real trailer. It is fairly large but not very complicated as I am fairly new to lego and still developing my skills. A key challenge was buoilding the deck so that it was rigid enough to take a significant load without sagging. After a number of rebuilds it can now easily hold quite large models such as 42030 Volvo loader with hardly any sag. Sorry but it seems I have to use links for pictures as I can't attached any more files. Trailer picture is at : http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6287700 The trailer has parking wheels to support the front end when not attached to a towing vehicle. These were tricky to design so that they worked, held enough weight and retracted with a very low profile. End result is simple and works quite well. Picture of underside wheels in the lowered position is : http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6287507 I have produced a full LDD file for instructions. There were three small items that LDD would not allow me to connect how I did on the actual trailer becasue they don;t line up perfectly the way LDD requires. LDD file is at : http://www.brickshel...ler_full_v1.lxf If I can work out how to put the actual pictures here, I will update this topic with them.
