Certainly there are the same kinds of deals around you place.

For $750 you get a frame, axles, wheels & tires, and most importantly....A clean title.

I would think 2" sq. box tube framing, probably 1/8" thick (or even 16 ga) on 2' centers.
Pole barn roofing tin all over with self drillers, and your done.

I just thought of something....

If you buy an old camper and scrap it out for the frame...
keep the slide out parts.

Be the first on your block to have a rolling weld shop
with a slide out.

Lol the first thing I thought of when that camper was posted. The thing is really I want to do automotive Fab. It's a means to getting a Fab shop with a tubing bender and maybe a Dyno and a press brake, lifting equipment (besides my back), a press maybe. All the comforts of home, but if I need to weld pipe fence in 3ft of cow poop for a year first.......

Have you considered making a "welding equipment pod" that could be transferred from pickup to trailer, if needed. That would allow for flexibility, rather than being dedicated to one or the other.

A friend of mine built a jobsite trailer from an enclosed tandem unit. Up front he mounted all his gas equipment and then built a wall behind them separating the fumes from his tool area. He pulled up to his jobsite, opened up the "front" doors and ran his gas equipment, and the rear door let him into his tool/storage/work area. His generator was wired into the back so he had outlets along a workbench/shelving unit along one wall. He even had compressed air lines run into the back. Self contained unit. I wish I had taken pics.

Just a thought, someone on here rigged his trailer so it couldn’t be hitched to anything other than his vehicle to stop some lowlife taking it.

Yes,
standard gooseneck trailer is a 2 5/16" ball in the bed, appropriate
coupler on trailer neck.

Neighbor changed his to a 5th wheel, as he also has a camper.

Have seen an "upside down 5th wheel" where the "Pin" is in the
truck bed, and the "5th wheel" is on the trailer neck, upside down.
