    I have one that i did. It was a pintle hitch trailer. I built a neck and changed axels to electric brakes. The are cheap here to but when i did my trailer i needed one now and there were not many goose necks around.I have worked as a welder so it wasnt to costly but if i couldnt do the work the cost would make me look around.I am looking for a biger trailer now and have seen 2 pintles ceap i may do it agin. One thing to keep in mind a neck welded to a trailer that was a tongue hitch will need alot of work to keep it from brakeing were neck is welded. The front of it will be under a new big stress that didnt happen before.
