So I am going after a fix me up trailer for my college classes that I am taking this fall. Its in auto damage and paint repair. I am vary skilled at painting and painted my own car. I just wanted to know if anyone could tell me the brand of the trailer and there thoughts. I know it looks bad. This is my project trailer for fun.
I agree with Waresbear - it does have that look to it. Odd that it's so beat up for that age. I wonder if it got caught in a bad storm or two in its time? Good for you taking it on for a project (albeit a challenging one). I've seen some of the farmers around here start with old time tractors that looked like pure rust and turn them into beautiful working just out-of-the-manufacturer's door machines - very enviable skills and talent to have.
I'm sure its home made, and look like made with old junk parts, I would stay away from it and try to find a factory built one to fix up. I can't remember the name brand of it but my g/f just totaled her truck and horse trailer and the 2 horses have no injuries and the trailer rolled once. Say a lot for whatever brand it was. I think it was am 80's Sundowner.
I see potential. The roof and axles are there, worth the cost of admission.
Cut the nose off, round or V-nose it, making that tack area. Which could be conformed to your liking, seeing as you're building it.
Trailers aren't really rocket science, it's more of getting what you want. And this, in my opinion seems like a great opportunity to learn and and have YOUR trailer. Posted via Mobile Device
