Another example of why I don't understand why anyone would consider a steel trailer. That trailer was only 10 years old and total junk. I have an aluminum trailer nearly the same age that still looks like new and that would sell for what I paid for it.
A totally ridiculous statement. If the trailer was kept in the woods without cover, holes in the roof could be expected but many steel trailers have fiberglass caps. Further, that statement also says that you should only buy Corvettes since steel rusts.
I went to look at an aluminum trailer last year that spent it's life in CT. It was unusable because the frame was rotted out as were the steel support work that the aluminum skin was attached to.
A trailer that has been given good care will be fine, steel or aluminum. As for that trailer, I would buy that all day long for $600 and make money on it with a little work. It is far from junk.
