    Shop Hauler

    I have been subconsciously looking for a trailer to use for shop related hauling for a couple of years now. A friend of mine knew this and spotted one on the road the day before yesterday.

    I talked the guy down from $400 to $350. I think compared to the dinky trailers you get for $600 up, this was a great deal.

    It has a heavy steel frame, car tires with a spare, full fenders, hand crank etc. It's not a full 4' wide but I don't mind that, it is over 8' long.
    A tiny bit of sand blasting and a paint brush would make it a real nice looking trailer. It even has short pipes welded to the sides so you can make a covered wagon out of it.
    Towing it home, you couldn't even tell it was there...

    What do you think?

    Good score on the trailer. That one has been around a while. I haven't seen a coupler like that in quite some time. Age don't hurt em though.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    Great price for that. It will do tons and tons of work for you. Like having a second truck without the license fees, engine maintenance, etc.
    Are you the guy that used to haul stuff on top of a mini-teeny car?

    Just needs some vintage machines riding around in there.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    You may be thinking of Alan's rig. I was thinking of him when I went to look at this.

    Trailers are like buildings, a person can never have to many!!! Very nice. Have been to some auctions and scrap metal type trailers (ready for the scrap yard) bring 200-300 dollars. Very nice. Great tie places.
    Frank, you don't have to license your trailers? I have to have license, registration, lights, reflective tape, tie downs. Insurance as long as it is hooked to my truck it is covered. If my barn burns down and the trailer isn't hooked up, I have no insurance on my trailer.

    Good deal Don!

    I especially like the rims painted to match and the hubcaps. Mounted spare even! Stylin'.
