    Default Rusty trailer replacement help

    So my 20 foot sunsport's trailer, has seen its day when it comes to rust. I dont have pics of it yet (rainy) but take my word when I say it looks pretty bad. Bubbling pockets of rust, that the previous owner tried to hide with paint. Ect. Anyone know how/where I can look into purchasing a good, used trailer? Or if I can salvage this one (when I get pics)...thanks ahead of time

    Don’t know where you’re located but this looks like a good buy.

    I repainted my trailer a couple of years ago. New lights, paint, carpet the works. Took about 3 days, start to finish by myself. I made a list of all the materials needed and had it ready to go. I rented a commercial sand blaster the kind the come on its own trailer and 200 lb. Of sand. I had the trailer ready for primer in about an hr.
    I think it cost less than $450.00.

    I have used Uship to have things like trailers hauled for me - Worked great, for me but I have heard other have issues so make sure the person is reliable.

    Also, make sure you do a thorough inspection before deciding to rehab your trailer. In particular, if it is the box style frame, make sure to look inside the box as many times there is heavy rust inside the frame, which is not repairable.

    That's what I fear... I have seen some spots underneath that are concerning so more thorough inspection is needed. I might have to do some major repair work and or replacement of some metal. Which I can do, but I dont have a lift to get the boat off... so theres that...lol
