$200.
$50 for tags.

plus
$25 for a new tongue and ball (stupid 1 7/8" hitch)
$15 for safety chain
$8 for new hinges/latch
$15 (estimated) to repair wood railings
lights work, but are very dim. hopefully it's just a weak ground connection.



stupid thing is nickel and diming me for another 50% of the purchase price. but it gets the job done. Hauled 2 miniature donkeys and a miniature horse 500 miles without any problems.

Used my homo chepo 5x8 again today. Took a whole demo'd kitchen to the dump. Brought back everything to get the kitchen back to sheetrock'd.
I love that thing.

It seems like I post this pic about once a week. There are the old truck threads, the rat rod threads, the IH threads, the garage sale threads (traded an electric dryer for the trailer), the firewood threads, etc.

Once the registration arrives, I'm sure MN will get another $75 out of me.

You have to register your trailers??? HOLY shit !!

Started as a $100 craigslist special. Had to weld on a new coupler, rewire it, add new lights, replace the axle beam and threw on a set of 235s I had laying around. Hauls my camping gear and whatever else just fine.

Funny I was just using my trailer and remembered to take a picture for this thread. And the thread just came back to top!

5' x 12' with a long ramp. This this is great for moving furniture and stuff like that. It has gotten a lot more use than I thought when I got it. It's a Ronco, which means nothing to me. I am the 2nd or 3rd owner.

Welcome to the socialist state of MN. I think perma-tags will run about $75 for this POS. My car tailer is $20-something a year.

I have one of the Snowbear trailers from Costco. It's not super heavy duty but it tows well, fit my quad and gets average household jobs done. I'll try to get a picture later.

No tags required, but not exactly speed-rated

I almost bought a gatormade trailer, seems to be priced fairly cheap, ended up getting a better trailer for cheaper not to far from home though...that being said, you're name, phone number, you spamming on PBB...nothing could come of that.

Psh. I feel like this is the third time I've ranted about this in a week, but here in NC we not only have to register and pay for trailers (more than that, for me at least) and buy a "weighted" tag for the truck that not only covers the weight of the truck but also has to cover the weight of the trailer and anything you may or may not haul on it in the next whenever. Of course you pay $$ for every 100 lbs over 7k. Was just wondering where all of that money went the other day when riding down potholed I40.



Anyway, I was just considering building a small angle iron trailer the other day too. Anyone got any pics of building one or links to free plans? Couldn't be too hard.

Ihave a 4x8 utility that has been redone with larger tires on it (had 6.90x9 tires, put 175/80/13s on it), new fenders, and a headboard built from 1x2 rect. tubing in order to hold anything from going forward.

I just got a 5x10 utility trailer for FREE that had been in a wreck. It's gonna need some work to get back straight......

picked this up a couple weeks ago , going to make it into a desk!
The hood lifts up and the whole engine compartment is for storage. If it was to stay a trailer I would hook up the headlights on brite and scare the heck out of a tailgater ala Grindhouse!
