The cornerstones of a Morris Mule Trailer are functionality, simplicity and strength. With proper care your great grandchildren will be using your Morris Mule Trailer. The backbone of the trailer is the tubular chassis which is built more like a stockcar than a small trailer. The lower frame is constructed of 2 inch by 2 inch square tubing with 11 Gauge (approximately 1/8 inch) wall thickness pulled by a 2 x 2 x ¼ inch tongue. The upper frame is constructed of 2 x 2 x 14 Gauge Steel. The Cargo Box is formed from 16 Gauge steel and is welded in the frame at over 100 points. The all-aluminum Cargo Box Lids are formed with a center "gutter” that, combined with rubber seals, provide a weather-proof seal. The tail gate is a welded construction using an aluminum tube frame skinned with 1/8 inch thick aluminum sheet inside and out. The standard Hi/Lo Rack allows easy and secure external cargo capacity whether it is a canoe, a load of plywood, or a college freshman’s furniture.
