My 10 year old trailer is due for a complete rebuild...
Faded Paint


You can see the rotted wood in the background


Rotted Floor


Burned electrics on Winch


So the project is
1st...repaint
2nd .. Re-floor
3rd.... Repack / replace bearings
4th...rewire electrics
5th... rewire winch or replace entire winch

If you can find white oak it makes a great flooring for these. The cell structure of the wood resits soaking up water.

Then slop on some of the cheapest water proofer you have (used motor oil) and you’ll be good to go.

I just did the same thing to mine this past summer along with new tires. It’s like a brand new trailer including a fresh coat of paint! That water proofer works great too!

Looks like a TWF trailer. I have one something like it although mine is only 14'.

They aren't the best trailers but I have mine so I recently rebuilt mine also. Mine needed some cross member replacements due to being bent, gate needed rebuilt due to overloading it, paint and rewired.

Here is the link from when I did my rebuild.
Utility Trailer Rebuild

Good luck, it is allot of work!!

Done..And Earning $$$

Been a while since my last update on trailer....
Quit my job in mid July due to onset diabetes and passing out on highway on the way to my store a hour away...Neat thing was that Freightliners look even bigger as you wake up 3 inches from the midline of their tires....



anyway, so finished her up,




picked up my Z as her maiden rebirth voyage




Shes working hard


And taking glory shots


Still going to seal the boards touch up paint and redo the bearings in the offseason and have her ready for Spring
