    I was just getting ready to go home after work, as i was turning the corner i look out my mirror and i see one of my trailer wheels rolling across the street. From the get go i have had problems with this trailer and this just tops it off. it is not even a year old got it in april of this yr. Needless to say iam going to take it back and demand my money back. The gate is already broken and the welds on the trailer are already cracked after only 7 - 8 mo. Below are some pics of the POS!

    How much did you pay for that trailer, where did you buy it from, and who uses skinny little rebar for gate rungs?

    WOW, that definately looks like a POS!!

    The wheels look like spare tire rims for a car.

    Ummmm, how much did you pay for that trailer new?? Im hoping you didnt pay that much and why in the world would you take delivery of a trailer with a gate like that? Why didnt the gate, the crappy wheels, etc. send you running?

    Man I have seen some cheap trailers but this one just topped them all. Aside from all the broken stuff you can tell its really cheap because all the steel is thin and there is basically no frame it looks like through the mesh floor.
