Default Deer stand help

Hello! Got a question for anyone and everyone. If you can help, please do. I am looking to build a 4'x4'x4' box stand but I want a metal frame to place it on. I dont' want to use wood b/c of weight (I'm going to install this onto a flat trailor I have) so the weight needs to stay down. I'm having trouble finding a place online that would sell something like that or thinking of a place locally that would sell something like that. Any ideas?

I saw a windmill the other day that was about 20 feet tall and that would've worked perfectly if I cut it off at around 10ft. I don't want this stand to be very tall,, in fact, I'll be on top of a ridge in it so height is not a problem.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks fella's and gal's.

No help here either. Best place would be a local contractor that works with manufacturing plants around your area. Those guys have all kinds of stuff laying around that they could weld together for you real quick. Move to TN and I can hook you up with a couple of boys that build their own tree stands out of their work shop.

(hey tator.. did you ever get my pm or email about that outdoor mag wanting you to write an article for them. email me back and let me know what happened.)
