Step 13: Add the tongue

Next add on the tongue.  I knew my design would not be anywhere close to the max capacity of the trailer (1800 lbs or so).  So I just used the stock tongue setup.  

There are ways to beef up the tongue if you think you might need to.  You can also add crosspeices to the tongue to carry additional cargo or cargo boxes. 

Consider your options.  Just make sure your tongue is strong enough. 

You can also add the tongue jack now too.  I got mine at Harbor Freight.  Now it'll be a lot easier to move this sucker around.
