    Bought a new project

    Local couple was selling a trailer so went and took a look.



    For a couple hundred bucks I can deal with the fact that it's only 14'.

    Needs tires and paint. Deck is solid. Some surface rust. I'll throw it on the lift tomorrow and get a better look at the underside. Maybe I'll redesign the gate.

    Agreed, not an impressive gate design. Looks decent though.

    Think I'll try to find someone in the South East PA or Central NJ area and see if they can fabricate a new gate for me.

    Something like this in a split design would be perfect I reckon.

    Couple hundred bucks?! Seriously?? As in 200?
    What a find for sure. I would have taken it without paint, or with no gate at all. Heck even no tires on the wheels.

    For a couple of hundred, you made a heck of a deal.

    GT-u found or stumbled across ur deal of the yr. for $200 u done good.even if it's only 14 ft long. heck for that little bit of money, u can afford to add 4 more ft to it, and make it a dove tail, with fold up ramps if u want too.
