Hey everyone, wanted to get some advice about a trailer in looking to get. Basically curious if you think it's worth fixing up or better off buying a nicer conditioned trailer. I can get it for $400 but needs tires and you can see the rust. Main concern is the rust seems pretty bad and not sure if it's being simple repair. Doesn't need to be perfect but want it to last a while and look somewhat nice. Interior won't need much work and floor is good.. If you get a chance let me know what you think. Thanks!

Attempting to post a link to the trailer picture album...

I cannot avise without seeing the floor and frame. If it is from the Rustbelt you may be better off running away. If you are a welder buy it now, that is a good deal on a do it yourself trailer or a title so you can build one from the ground up.
Looks both ways, not that any of us in the Rustbelt buy things for a title, pulls hat down and walks off coughing.

It depends on how bad is the fame, and how much time and money you are willing to spend to restore it.

Appreciate the comments, going to take a closer look at frame later this week. I'm in Kentucky and trailer titles don't mean much here so may wait for the next opportunity...

Dr. Raymond Stantz: [gets out] Everybody can relax, I found the car. Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end. 
Dr. Peter Venkman: How much? 
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Only $4,800. 
[Venkman looks shocked]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Also new rings, mufflers, a little wiring.
