Thanks Fran! I will keep an eye on that site!

I wonder what we the people paid for that trailer new? I'm guessing about 10 times what they sell for now.
I'll GUARANTEE at LEAST ten times.......probably more!
This one is the 6.5' x 10' and if you did a little garage "re-org" or could get it through a fence into your backyard you would have a decent wood hauler. This one has the 3500lb axle and the Big Tex site says it weighs in around 1000lbs so it should give you the hauling safety you need as long as you don't stack it too high. I kicked myself for a couple years after building my Red Trailer up with the rails and mesh ramp because it was flimsy and I never felt comfortable with our 700lb Kawasaki ATV on it. This one would make my drive a lot less stressful!!
I really like the looks of this one but I would go with the 12' model. Add brakes on both axles and LED lights and this would be great!!
Met a guy once who bought a full-size miltary Blazer with a diesel (6.5L or 6.2L, can't remember). Heard it idling and had to ask him where the hell he found that. Sure enough he had gone to one of these auctions and picked it up.
Says ~$3900 at the bottom of the page. Sure is better to sell for a few hundred $$s vs just having it sit unused or just crush it for scrap price.
Trailers are cheaper, Trucks are handier IMHO.
Look around you would be suprised how many solid trucks can be had, check'm out careful. Most good auto repair shops will do a used vehicle inspection and give you an idea of the repairs needed, if any.
