    Yeah it has rust, but a rattle can would fix that. Can't tell what the tires look like, from the pic's. Fender is dented. The deck condition? No spring assit gate. Its a big tex trailer, at least the partial decal looks like it was. I would go look at it, but give it a good look over in the middle of the day, yes crawl under it, check all the lights (make sure they aren't dim or and functioning). 6x12ft might be a little on the small side, a 7 or 8ft x 12 or 14 would be better, and offer more room to grow. With those high sides are you going mount any racks or build a cage on the front?

    I would offer 700 cash, spend the other hundred on paint, primer, and a case of beer.

    Yeah the tall sides is what I liked most for installing racks and advertising. Im thinking atleast a 6.5-14 is what I need though, but in the first season I could get away with this size and sell later.
    Thanks for the info! By the way what type plug adapter do trailer lights need?
