I rebuilt my 20 year old On the Road landscape trailer this past Spring after it sat in the weeds for about five years. Everything was replaced with new wood, stainless hardware, new hitch and wheels and tires. You don't see many old school wood sided trailers on the road anymore. I just have it for my own personal use.

Kind of looks like the old snowmobile trailer we rebuilt a couple of years ago. Very nice job! Looks good!
