my trailer is a 36'     90" x 90" inside   8.5" deep over the goose   3x5200 axles     

i put new tires when i got it.    I have never had a flat or tire wear.   Never had bearing or brake problems.  (knock on wood)

Triple axles tow nice.   turn like shit.  however, 98% of the time you are going straight.

I would say its worth a look.   Whats the rear opening dimensions?



wish my roof was dome and not flat...

Similar width clearance to what I have on my trailer. No big deal...

Cheap, 8 lugs, waiting on dimensions. Damage on side but I can't have nice things anyway

Kinda bad. I'm thinking push back out straightish from the inside and hit with sealer as best I can. Doesn't bother me aesthetically, but not sure if it's too bad to not consider.

Door is 77" tall so that's good at least.

read this thread, enjoy your motivation.

seems fine. damage like that should knock quite a bit off price. I'd guess that would be a $4500-5500 unit without the damage? Take it for 3000-3200 after you offer him 2700-2800?

I picked that thing up with Caleb. It was in rough shape but didn't realize it was that bad. Ugh.

I said right off the bat I wasn't interested for more than $3k, he said he'd think on it. Arranging a time to see it with him is challenging.

I really want this one but that whole used and 10hrs away thing is a little rough.
