Wilson Livestock Trailer


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, tonight I just started the Wilson livestock trailer and I have a few questions to begin with. Can anybody show me what they did with the frame assembly? The instructions are not very clear and I want to make sure I get it right. Has anyone ever plumbed this trailer too? I would love to but I cannot find any good pictures of the airlines. Any help is appreciated!

Got a idea! Next time use phone wire. Remove the outside part use the different color wire. 

There are 2 kinds the cheap stuff from a dollar store it kinda hard to work with and after a while the color part starts to crack and a little translucent.

If you have a wal mart get the good stuff a little princely but it holds up good. And 10' last me years .

I will definitely look into that today, I was going to see if there was a better option than thick fishing wire. Do you just glue it in with regular plastic cement? And can you just cut it with scissors?

Scissors or a #11 blade. Use a dab of ca glue. Takes a little time to figure out how too work with it.

Brenden I just finished building mine. I built the floor sections first and used one of the sides as a template for the front section to get the correct angle. Then I attached the front and one side to the floor. Then I attached the other side but before I attached the sides I attached the rear doors. Next I assembled the roll up door and installed it in the roof then I attached the roof. This worked out good for me if you have any questions let me know.

Thank you for your advice! The instructions leave a lot to be desired, this will help a lot.
