Poco, the problem with the homemade trailers is that you can have lots of issues registering it in your state. Some states will require you to prove it's within standards (so you may check it with your MVA before buying one). Plus you don't know yourself how safe the homemade one is.
What Val said. It's not that the trailer isn't in good shape, it's that you may not be able to title it where you live, which will limit you to only using it within your state borders, if that's even allowed.
In VA, anything that can't be titled can have a 'Farm Use' tag put on it. There are restrictions though, such as not taking it more than 50 miles from your residence, and you can't cross into any other state.
If you're set on this trailer just make sure it can be titled and tagged, otherwise it's not really a good deal.
The trailer is already titled in my state so that's not an issue. Any other thoughts? Posted via Mobile Device
Spend your time and money closer to home.
5 hours away is a long way to go plus if you need to have it checked over all of the sudden this is a 2 day trip. Save the drive and put that gas money in a better trailer that you can resell when ready.
