    Picked this up today.
    Should help me haul a cord of green wood & the ATV.
    Melting the snow off of it now. Some BCIs & other wood on it.
    $1200.
    Dual axles. Both axles have working brakes.
    Spare tire needs replaced but the wheel looks OK.
    Lights all work.
    Even a red milk crate LOL :)

    Nice catch, and a good size! Seems as most times, wood hauling trailers fill up way too soon!
    Bigger is better!

    The guy is leaving the state, I got lucky.
    He was one of the few left here. LOL :)

    Contrary to what most think, we do have some people here that don't live in igloos. Even have a few businesses LOL ;lol
    Population is a tad over 700,000 .

    We have sixrobbelees here, have almost everything for trailers, reasonable prices. (when shipping factored in)
    http://sixrobblees.com/
    Shipping is typically a killer here unless you live in some remote villages. There they get a lot of free shipping,
    (Was $545 shipping when I was looking for a log splitter)

    Wow, I priced a 10" electric Brake assembly (then did it x4) and sixroblees still beat it after shipping (assuming you pick up locally) even tho they get another $20 each for the exact same part. Might be worth checking etrailer if you need a LOT of goods but it would have to be a massive order for sure.

    Got any friends in remote villages? ;lol

    Then I'd have to pay shipping from the village to me LOL .
    I seem to never qualify for the free stuff.

    I thought that for a minute as well. Then I remembered my little ones don'e seem to be bothered with the cold either. They are a lot tougher than us "older" folk. ;lol
