1981 VW Scirocco Trailer Meridian, ID $400

• CATEGORIES: trailer

I spotted this while looking for something else. It’s just so odd. It would never occur to me to turn a Scirocco into a trailer.

https://boise.craigslist.org/tro/d/boise-1981-vw-scirocco-trailer/6938671563.html

“Back half of a VW Scirocco turned into a trailer with working wiring. Previous owner built it as a companion to another Scirocco, but I have no need for it. Would make a great race trailer or show accessory for the VW enthusiast.”

I can’t remember seeing a trailer with that type of dump slot.

It has a 2″ ball coupler (non-stock), it has a slide rear panel off the back end (can be redone to original or use a tailgate design), 6-round plug for a connector, needs rear taillights replaced. Other than that, its pretty much original. Good to decent bed with no rust holes, good floor, drains still work, original folding standing leg, original parking brake handle and its usable, minimal dents from 66 yrs of use and original id tags (painted over). Tires are in good to great shape, bearings/seals as well (last pull was 5hrs and had no excessive bearing heat).
