Thanks for the info! By the way what type plug adapter do trailer lights need?

What type of female plug do have on your truck? 4 flat or round, 7 or 8 pin round. What type is on the trailer? Auto part stores and box marts will carry a number of different adaptors. The other question to ask if the trailer has brakes.

Don't. Have one. Need to install one. So I guess best to just see what trailer has 1st. Didn't know if most these days have the 4 or the 7.
But yeah I may pull the plug on the trailer. Love it being open but still having the 4 foot sides. Also being tandem at only 12 foot would be a nice smooth ride.

Looks like a great trailer great buy. I'd prefer that to my trailer if it weren't for the length, but thats all you need. Having two axles is nice, but those sides are great man, you could put a roll cover on the front and it'll be great for cleanups. Build some removable racks on the sides for your handhelds.

It'll clean up with some good paint and look like new. Looks like you'll have a few more years before you gotta replace the wood so I'd leave it. Make sure you grease it up good and you'll be good to go. I'm sure you could get that for a great price. Nice find.

Perfect start up trailer. The tandem axle will allow you to carry up to 7000 lbs most likely. A little rust is no big deal just use a wire brush and clean it up a little and primer and paint it and then you will have a $3500 trail for under a grand.

I second this...ive been looking for one myself, and havent seen anything that nice for 850. If the bearings and tires are in good shape, you should jump on that in my opinion. The light rust can be taken care of a few different ways....all of them easy. rustoleam primer and paint being the easiest.

If your lazy about painting, the "Hammered" paint seems to be holding up okay for me, need to touch up a few spots a year, but spray's right over rust.

Ok. Well my measurements come up with 6.5 x10. But I think this will work for my solo outfit a season or two. I can use my truck bed as well. So got it for $650. Would like to freshen the paint job a bit. So did I get a good deal? You think it's big enough for a starter?
