Bruce’s Trailer Makeover

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, trailer

Bruce wanted to share some before and after pictures of a trailer he saved.  As you can see, the before picture shows a pretty tired trailer.  However, after six weeks of work by Bruce, the trailer looks like a great match for his flattie.  Thanks for sharing Bruce.

Bruce wrote, “I purchased this trailer locally (7/2/12) for $600, more than i wanted to spend.  however, it was simple to transport so i bought it anyway.  they are hard to find.

Every nut, bolt and screw was removed, and all 20 leaves from the springs.  All of the u-bolts and one shackle were replaced.  All rust was removed.  The floor had a few rust holes on the side that i duct taped over and then rhino guarded (black spray) the interior. I picked up a 3×6 rubber floor mat from u-line that fits nicely inside.

The trailer had home made fenders that were welded on. Once i removed them, gaping holes were left.  I found new fenders at ‘tractor supply’.
