    Anybody close to Kansas City MO looking to buy a new utility trailer.
    I had this one built for me and turns out I'm not going to use it.

    It's a heavy duty 8X10
    All steel floor
    Single Axel (3900)
    15" GoodYear tires.
    5000 lb tung jack
    4' gate with chain locks

    I'm going to list this on e-bay soon if nobody on lawnsite is looking for one.
    I did not get a title or license for this one so you'll have to apply for a builders title and license.
    I'm asking a firm $1200.00
    I don't want to loose to much since I never used it even once.
    I didn't have it painted so you'll have to paint it what ever color you want.

    Was built with all new parts March 2006.
    It's been siting out in the rain without paint since March so it has a build up of rust over everything.

    Um... I really hate to be 'that guy' about this but...

    That is a very high price for a 'home built' trailer. Around where I live you can get a tandem axle car hauler with 2 axle brakes and new tires for around 22-2500. a open landscape trailer is even less. This is for a painted trailer with a conventional axle layour and quality lights. used that same trailer in great shape is going to be 11-1500

    While there is nothing wrong wiht your trailer or it's lay out the lack of paint and unusual axle layout really hurt your price.

    First thing one would have to do to that trailer is move the axle forward to get correct load balance. The way it is setup with the axle all the way to the rear is going to place to much weight on the tongue and it will pull like crap. Otherwise, a little paint and its a good looking trailer, but I can buy one of the same or similar size for less money new. I do like the way the fenders where incorporated into the bed.

    You should incorporate the tailights in the hole at the back of the fender for protection. They are in a dangerous place right now.
