    Pete; I'm looking at the same type trailer instead of building something. the one I'm looking at has a steel deck and double axle that's low. I'll have to remove the cage and do a few mods but it's in my price range at the moment.

    Could remove it and use elsewhere.

    I can see easily adding another socket further back, at the front of the
    tilting part, eliminating any concerns.
    Yes, on that yellow trailer there's enough room to permanently mount a winch just ahead of where it drops down in front of the fender (winch is on side facing middle of trailer) and put a small easy to remove snatch block in that receiver (in the center) that you mentioned. I would first look at Felling trailers, the FT series has a bunch in the size and design you want and I like the no ramp aspect.

This was on level ground to get it out of a truck and onto a level loading dock where there was no room for the forklift and the load at the same time.

    The alternative to rollers is to use two pieces of steel flat bar, mine are 1 1/2" x 1/2" they will bend but they will provide a smooth surface to drag the machine up, an alternative is a steel sheet.

    Here is how I mounted a winch on my tilt trailer, works very well, I built the headache rack to mount the winch on just high enough to keep the cable from hitting the bed.
