Default Small pull behind trailer or just an axle.......Changed Plan

I'm looking for a trailer or pull trailer axle to modify for use under my smoker.
I'll go up to $75 if the axles and wheels are in good enough shape. The rest of it can be destroyed for all I care.

i picked up one from harbor freight to use to carry my 2 honda generators, and gas.
i think it was about 75$. it can handle some serious weight. worked out pretty well.
just a random idea.

I'll keep this in mind. The smoker was built with all old scrap metal, I would hate to put something new on it.

A go cart rolling frame would be perfect. I know someone has one of those.

Okay, change in plans......................inquiring minds want me to bring this along to wheeling trips, and such.
So, I'm going to make it mobile behind a car hitch. That means I need an axle for a tow trailer something smaller or something that I can cut down. Doesn't need to be able to haul more than 1,000 lbs if that.

I will light it and plate it.

What do you awesome people have out there that you want to get rid of?

I have a hunk of 2" reciever tubing that you/we can weld to the bottom.

There is no way that is too heavy to overcome the standard tongue weight of any Class III or IV hitch.

Just need to make sure it is not too heavy for an individual(s) to lift.

I have an old heavy trailer axle here that was going to scrap I just could not bring my self to scrap something so valuable yet. No tire or wheels just the axle. I actually have a pair of them and I would make you a heck of a deal.

I have an axle (never used) that I had bought for a utility/snowmobile trailer you can have for $50. If interested or need the length let me know and I can check it out.
