Thank you guys!
I was thinking about plywood on the rear doors just earlier today... it would make it safe for the horses and cattle. I'll talk to my stepdad about it when he comes out to get startd on the trailer, but I'm sure he will agree... he's as excited about remodeling this thing as I am. If he (well, my mum) won't buy plywood for the doors, then I'll save my money and buy it, and get my stepdad to help me put it in, but the doors will be fixed.
It is a light frame, sorta... but it's hauled horses and cattle for over thirty years now with little to no problems. My great grandmother's husband built this trailer, so... well, he built it with his hands, he didn't buy it. Lol...
The frame won't be reinforced anymore, as it's still in good condition (under all that rust and the horrible paint job)...
Also, those horrible, horrible crews will be fixed. I'm not sure what my stepdad is planning on doing, but this trailer will definitely be safe for the cows and horses when we're through with it. It may not be gorgeous, but it will be a lot nicer, I think.
Wish me luck, guys... I start sanding tomorrow sometime!
