Good buy Paul...great trailer for a quick haul. It looks like good traction surface for driving up while tilted. My old Menards trailer, the deck boards would get slick when wet :Osm00

I have the larger, tandem axle version. Bought it several years ago and then found out it was also made by the Snow Company. It is 14 ft long and can haul several tractors. I replaced the lightweight axles and 13 inch wheels with 3500 lb axles and 15 inch wheels. Also put electric brakes on it. Since I have had it, it has done hauling duty in NC, VA, WV, MD, PA and NY. I know I have put over 10,000 miles on it. It also has a tilt bed that is lifted by a bottle jack. A very useful trailer.

Never seen a trailer like that, cool! I have two vintage boat trailers of the same vintage, a Cox and a Gator. When I first looked at yours thats what I thought it was.

That thing would look cool with baby moons but tr5ailer hubcaps are rare as... you know.

Nice find Paul! Is yours a slightly different model than the one in the add? I see yours has a straight tongue as compared to a curved tongue.Dan

Way cool! I came across one a number of years ago, but the frame tubing was rusty - had holes in it. Figured it was unsafe and that tubing is not something you just go find. I would love to have one! Tim

I like mine.

Still waiting in the wings to get the pin fixed at the front of the bed for the tilt.

Word of warning, when loading the REAL heavy stuff, or pushing the weight limit of the trailer, use the tilt, not a pair of rampssm02sm02wahwah
