THK's Utility Trailer
« on: Sep 07, 2018, 02:04:56 PM »
Welp, I'm moving on up in the world. bought a trailer the other night to do dump runs, gather firewood, move other people's (familys sh*t), and looks like i may be using it to haul a vehicle or other crap with it too.

It's homemade trailer from the 80s, looks pretty stout, but needs some love. I have some used tires im going to swap on as these are weather checked, and I dont want to trust them and get stranded somewhere or worse yet cause a Carr Fire #2. I have to replace all of the wiring and more than likely all of the lighting as well. (small stuff) and the wood decking has seen better days, but that will come later, just going to toss some plywood on it for the winter coming up and fully redo the decking next spring.

here she is, I will get some official measurements this weekend and more pictures.

paid $800 for it.

Here is some pictures, redid the lighting and wiring. Still need to get some better tires on it, redo the decking and throw some farming implement paint it to make it look decent

And measurements show 7x14 for the deck
