Hi folks, I've been looking through Craigslist, Pennswood.net, Traders Guide, eBay, etc for a used tandem axle trailer in my price range to haul firewood. I was hoping to find a 7000GVW 10 to 12 foot trailer with electric brakes. The typical prices were a good bit out my range until then I stumbled on this 16ft tandem at the other corner of the state for $1000: The plywood sides are two feet high. If its 16 x 6 with 2 foot high sides, that would be 192 cubic foot. This trailer looks like it was loaded almost double that (2 1/2 to 3 cords?) Looking at where the wheel wells are to the top of the tires, that load had to have been way over the 7000GVW rating on this trailer. How do you know if a trailer has been overloaded too often/too much, i.e., abused beyond the point its prudent to buy it? What should I look for that might make me decide to walk away? (Or is this kind of load "normal" for folks burning wood?) I'm supposed to pick up this trailer late tomorrow afternoon, and I'm traveling a fair distance to get it. I'll be using it with a 2007 Expedition, 9000 towing capacity, so towing capacity isn't an issue if I don't overload.
