View Full Version : Trailer Repair ?

07-18-2011, 04:39 PM
Im looking at buying a trailer. The guy is selling a 6x12 enclosed with a missing fender and the 3rd wheels needs to be greased (says its stuck). Proab just replace it and add a fender proab all for around 60 bucks. Ok now the major issue is that he says there is a tear in the roof from a tree branch falling on it. How would I go about fixing this if it leaks or does it need a whole new roof. O the asking price is 1000. Its also missing the sun roof cover.

"missing right fender, has a slight tear on roof(tree branch fell on it), missing sun light cover, besides that it runs and hauls great...the crank shaft to lift up & down is stuck, needs to be lubricated..."

That is what he emailed me back.

if you go to a heavy truck and trailer supplier ,they have an aluminum patch that is peel and stick ,and pretty much guaranteed to never fall off .The stuff used to be pretty pricey [about $150.00 for a 2x2 foot piece ] but it works perfectly .There are many sizes available,you cut it with a sharp knife ,it comes in quite a few shades of white to match your trailer colour ,not sure if it comes in other colours or not .They told us the glue was the same stuff they use for holding brake pads together ,but really cant confirm that either,but I have repaired dozens of trailers with it and it does work great .

O, ok. I mean if i was to do that, then its like 60 for a fender and i would do 2 so they match and then i would need a 3rd wheel so that like 60 and then 150 for the patch. Now im at 60+60+150+60=330 plus grand for the trailer so im at like 1500. i might as well get the new one for 1350 lol. so it dont make sense to get a used trailer that sounds like its been beat to hell when i can get a new one for the same price if not cheaper. if hed give me the trailer for 500 den yea lets talk. lol
