    Nothing like doing fall clean ups with snow still on the ground. Did this one today and we were basically blowing snow and ice along with the wet ass leaves. After we were done it was the only house on the street with no snow on the lawn. We dumped 3600lbs of leaves today, but it should have weighed half that if it were still dry out.

    what year is this trailer? does it have a title? what kind of shape are the tires in? what is the rating of the axles, what size/kind of hitch? Jack work ok? Could you post a pic of the tongue from the side and front, could you also post of the gate down taken from the side? Kind of a lot of questions, but it should cover most of them lol =o) Thanks

    I could see hauling some mowers on here or something, and it may have even been done before, but I would certainly not recommend a car on this trailer.

    Yeah, the trailer itself looks fine, and I have no doubt the suspension is there. It is the tongue construction that I was referring to. Any trailer that is designed to haul substantial loads that utilize that size of steel are built with what is called a wrapped tongue (car haulers and such). What this is, is the tongue is mitered as one piece, and goes not only under the trailer, but then runs down the sides - sometimes to the front axle.
    Regardless, this trailer is worth every bit of a thousand dollars - if not more.

    Runner, I agree 100 percent, and thank you for not bashing my equipment while I try to sell it (as so many try to do on this site)
