Bought this trailer the other day. It’s a 14 foot enclosed. Tandem axles, electric brakes, barn doors. It’s in pretty good shape, no dents or dings. I’m going to get it buffed and waxed, then it will be black again.
The hot water pressure washers going in here, a few water tanks, the water fed equipment, and the roof cleaning equipment.
I’m brainstorming what kind of vinyl is going to go on the outside… it’s going to be HUGE!
Congratulations Micah! It will be so nice to just hook up and take off with everything you need for any job. Some guys are too wimpy to deal with the drawbacks included with using a trailer but I feel the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. For example, your trailer is now your workshop, storage facility, an advertising billboard on wheels, you don’t have to pack and unpack equipment everyday, and you can simply unhook and you’re back to just cruisin’ in your truck.
One of the first thngs to do is check the wheel bearings. Previous owner may not have done the maintenance. If I had a dollar for every trailer I have seen on the side of the road with missing wheels I could retire.
Yeppers! Because trailers sit a lot in the weather, I pull the wheels and repack the bearings with grease at least once a year. I always add a grease fitting when I put it back together. It will take about 90 minutes the first time you do it, but well worth the time
