    Hey guys,
    I was browsing through a local online classified site and came across a dump trailer for $2200, and I've been looking for one for a while. I went to see, and its rough, rougher than I thought. However, I ended up taking it for $1700. What do you guys think?? Its a 3.5 ton, 5x10, everything works, but might need one or two new tires.
    Its gonna be my winter project to get it lookin pretty again!

    It is a kick a** shop, you guys dont even see haalf of it! Unfortunately, it isnt mine, its my neighbours, who's a retired farmer, and really doesnt use it anymore. So, he allows me to put all my equipment in there, and use the shop to my free will - he even heats it for me!
