I think if you put a micrometer or vernier to the web, you will find it considerably less than 1/8" (0.125"), closer to 0.075", which is close to 1/16" (0.063")

I don't accept the premise that just because you can find 1 or 10,000 photos that someone else couldn't do it right, that I can't.

Probably true... I was looking at the thickness with the coating on it.

Last comment. I would wager if you went to a certified welder, he would tell you to find someone else to do it if he has/had to guarantee it. He could guarantee his welds, but not the frame structure itself. IT' JUST TOO THIN! Besides it's not even quality steel.

Nope. That's why I got the trailer that I have, instead of a larger one, along with a sway bar for control.

I think everybody should lighten up. I also think he knows better than to carry gens on the bumper and is awaiting ideas such as extending the frame past the bumper to handle the weight. I could be wrong I have been wrong many times before.

Very well could be! I'll take it down to the local welder (who manufactures flatbed tow-trailers) and see what he tells me. If he says it can't be done, then I'm good with that. I'm persistent, not stupid.
