I have owned this 5X10 tilt trailer for 10 years. After many hauls,loaned out and a rotting bed it was time to give it a total make over. I replaced the bent and cracked cross member,damaged fender,flooring,new tires,paint and LED lights. Back in service for single tractor hauls and other duties.

Looks like new! I don't loan my trailer anymore since I learned that I can be liable for what the borrower does with the trailer. Good Luck, Rick

You show up to buy a tractor pulling that the price may go up. Don

Yes I did beyond that, new bearings, races, seals and grease. No more loaning it out either (and that was to family...a 20 foot drain tile bent the cross member). $400 in materials for a $500 trailer.

They want $750-1000 for trailer like that around here.

I paid $700 for mine used last year with a gate/ramp on it.

great job on that project. I thought I'd offer up something here to anyone that's in my area. I'm north of Syracuse NY about 1/2 hour. I have a tandem axle trailer that I've taken the entire deck off. the axles are both electric brake axles and the deck was 6'X12' which I had intentions of enlarging some. the wood decking had gotten pretty nasty which is why this project was really started to begin with and the fenders were pretty much falling off so decided it was a good time to go entirely thru it. well, the project stalled (because of it being winter and no indoor place to work on it) and now my landlord has the place up for sale so I feel like I have to "dump it fast" or might end up in the position to junk it entirely. This trailer has hauled many cars and was built heavy duty but it is a project for sure. Its not all rotted, its very solid actually, it needs new fender mounts and fenders welded back on. message me for more information and I'll get out to take pictures on my next day off because its dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home as well. I'd like $300 and I feel I'm giving it away at that price but I'd rather see someone from here get a deal on it then scrapping it at junk value. If you have welding abilities this is well worth the efforts to finish, I'm sure it wasn't cheap when new. No current registration.

Nice work. It looks good. I have a sixteen foot dual axle trailer, if you want more practice! I only loan my trailer to a select couple of guys. I got tired of getting it back and having to straighten fenders and fix lights. I have a simple rule: if I loan something and it comes back dirty, bent or not full of fuel, they go on my mental do not loan list.

Nice job, I just bought a 16' bri-mar landscape trailer that I have to fix a few things on but it has a clear title and is clean with a good floor and new tires, next trailer is a 6by8 that is a complete rebuild.

Nice job turned out like a new one. That's a $1000.trailer easy. I rebuilt my 5x10 a few years ago & I've seen many new ones over that I wouldn't trade even. Mine started out as a boat trailer about 38 years ago.

Nice job on the trailer. When I bought my 5 x 10 with tail gate/ramp I gave over $800 for it new. It could use a sand blasting and paint but that will wait.
