2002 Adams 2-horse bumper pull? Is it worth it?

Well as per my previous post I have been looking for a fix er up trailer. I was emailed this 02 Adams 2 horse bumper pull for $600....yes only $600 but it does need work!:) all the lights work beside the top running lights. It has a title. Some rust, frame is solid and the inside is okay. Saw pics of outside. None of the inside yet. It has 40 bails of hay inside so I'll take a look when I go see it Monday.

Does this sound like a good deal? Im looking at fixin it up and using it as my own personal trailer. Will post pics later but what do you guys think? What is there retail value?
Thanks!

Hard to say without seeing pictures.

I'm sure that you'll end up putting more money into the trailer than it's worth in the end. If you have the time and money to put into it and do it right, you might enjoy turning it into your own piece of art.

Sounds like exactly the deal that I am interested in getting. Crawl under it and check out the frame before buying.

It does need to be checked out but a 10 year old trailer should be in pretty good condition unless it lived over on the coast or was completely abused by it's owner.

Literally the worst part about the trailer is inside on the roof at the end of the trailer (where the horses butt would be) there's rust and small holes but that's it. Outside is fairly clean. Just hope the inside is okay too being I'm driving 3 hours to get this trailer!

ETA. I think they just parked it in the woods and barely used it. They did use it to haul a horse in November though so can't be so bad I'd assume. Will upload pics soon

okay so here are the pics I have. Some are small but I think if you download them you can zoom in but theyll be fuzzy. No pics on the inside so im only going off what the lady has told me.

So without further adue!

Also, do you think my 15.2 appaloosa would fit fine in there?
