    I picked this trailer up a couple of weekends ago. I only paid a couple hundred bucks for it so im hoping I didn't get screwed as I don't know much about them. I have a friend who restored one and I always thought it was really cool. It has all the brake hardware but as you can see the tub is pretty rough. I plan on using it to haul firewood this year and maybe stripping it down and restoring it next year. Anything I should pay special attention to?[​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    Reinforce the tailgate opening like a civilian trailer.
    Clean and repack bearings then use it. $0.02

    Nice. I'd be all over that for $200. Good advice above, and don't throw firewood in it. Stack it. The new floor thanks you in advance.
