    Springtime Trailer Project

    I picked up a nice 4' X 8' open trailer over the Christmas week. Front, back, and sides are all removable in the event one might need just a flatbed type trailer for something or other, and it tilts back like a dump also. All tires are brand new, rims have minimal surface rust, not a problem.
    Guy originally was asking $475.00, and I offered him $200.00. He wasn't eager to accept that offer and offered it for $450.00.
    I could see where this conversation was going, so I told him my final offer was $300.00 take it or leave it. He took it, I paid him and hooked up to it and trailered it home.
    Here's a pic of it how I bought it, I've already got a color scheme in my head, bought the paint, sketched-out the decals I want for it, and I actually started on some of it today, as the temps were in the low 50's and sunny with no wind.
    I'll add pics as I go along for viewers pleasures.

    Nice, sturdy trailer.
    Is it going to be use for on, or off-road use?
    Am I wrong in thinking it will be a John Deere scheme?

    Looks a lot like mine that I bought at Farm and Fleet. Sides come off, ends come off. Front and rear gates are load bearing on mine. I can actually move the hitch to forward hole and have a trailer that is 4.5' wide and 12' long.

    Good luck with your project.

    I dunno. Does that thing even have any scratches on it? It looks pretty good as it is. I think I'd throw some fenders on it just to block stuff from splashing up and call it done.

    Part of my shop was built with a dedicated kitchen space when I designed it.
    It's a lot less messy to hold a party / get-together out there instead of tracking a mess in the house.
    Between the shop / kitchen area out there, and the 12' X 20' "setting room" attached, (for the womenfolk to be able to relax more together), I can entertain 30 friends more comfortably. No smoking in the setting room, as a lot of those who show up might have young children or grand-children, and, it gives those who don't smoke cigarettes or pipes a clean area to relax without smoke being blown on them.
