Willys Truck-Bed Trailer Puyallup, WA $2200

• CATEGORIES: trailer

Nice looking truck-bed trailer.


“Willy’s Kaiser JEEP stepside trailer. The bed is 8 foot, comes with the vintage canopy made by a local company in the late 1950’s, early 60’s. There’s a lumber rack, and the trailer axle is standard Willys 5 on 5.5” bolt pattern just like the vintage jeeps. She’s perfect for hauling whatever, or whoever. Use it for camping, glamping, personal, or business use.

A great chance to haul your stuff to the Swap Meet coming up- pull up in Puyallup with this thing and park it in your stall and you’re ready to go!”
