Chance at a cheap trailer

Postby Gary T » Mon Jan 16, 2006 3:25 pm

I have been asked if I want to buy a small boler trailer.
As far as I can tell the frame/ mechanical stuff is all in working order. All the propane stuff woks. It's just painted a really ugly color.
The Lady is asking $350.00 Can.( $ 300.00 US)
Is this a crazy low price to ask for this?
Would I be stupid to pass it up?

I thought as much.
Even if it is so messed up I can use it I'm sure I can canabilze it for parts.

I'll post some pic's as soon as I get it in my shop.

I'm with you on this one Chip!

If you don't believe me check Ebay for Scamps, Bolers, Calistas, Burros and the like!

Bringing in premium prices and LOTS of bids!

Heck if you don't buy it, whats her phone# LOL!

GO for it, can't go wrong!

Even if you tow it home take some pics & list it on Ebay you'll at least get 4X what you paid for it!

Cheers,

Coop

Go, Go,Go!!!!!And you'd better do it before someone on the Fiberglas Trailer Forum finds it!

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.

When cleaned up and looking the way you want it. You'll enjoy it as much as a teardrop. And the price is right so act fast. It's one of those deals that don't come along very often. And it's a matter of being in the right place at the right time.

I used to read the Boler forum and it's hard to find one for under $3K.
