    Here is a caboose I built. 1x1 square tubing, 14 gauge, I think and expanded metal.

    Rocky,

    As you may have come to anticipate, yep, I have some questions.



    1. How heavy is this caboose?
    2. How do you get it into the hitch?
    3. What class hitch are you using?
    4. What do you carry in it and what is the payload limit?

    Hope you don't mind all the questions, but I have some square tubing that I have in mind to use for a smaller yet similar project and could use some experienced advice so I don't create problems for myself. Thanks.

      I never weighed it, but two guys can lift it.
      2. How do you get it into the hitch?
      I made a stud on the bottom that fit my floor jack, and one man can jack it up and slide it into the reciever
      3. What class hitch are you using?
      I don't remember, but it was 2 x 2 x 1/4" square tubing
      4. What do you carry in it and what is the payload limit?
      I built it to carry my 4KW generator, welder and chop saw, But I never ran the numbers to see just what it's capacity was.

      Hope you don't mind all the questions, but I have some square tubing that I have in mind to use for a smaller yet similar project and could use some experienced advice so I don't create problems for myself. Thanks.
