As it looked when I bought it...




Primed and repainted all the metal and painted the plywood on the inside black...




I wanted sides just a little higher and rather than replacing the existing wood (it was ugly, but rock-solid), I decided to "re-skin" the exterior. I applied some waterproofing deck stain I had left over...


















It looks pretty tiny when I stand back and look at it. I'd love to have a 16' trailer, but I simply don't have room for one. I'm limited to a ten, maybe twelve footer max. This should do OK for another year or so though.
It may not be the nicest trailer, but I think I did a pretty good job of polishing a turd and it works for me, so I can't complain.

It's not a starter trailer if you STILL use it!

Nice.
That's as big as my camping trailer and lemme tell you, THAT is a heck of a lot easier to back into my narrow driveway than the 8' trailer seen quoted just above your post!

New (used) trailer

Just purchased this trailer last week. Need to have brakes checked, bearings serviced and storage area modified for my Toro walkbehind. Half the cost of a new model. Did not want much larger than this because of the gas prices.Name:  DSCF1455.JPG
