Default 2 1/2 Ton Military Trailer

I also have a military trailer for sale. It is a 1953 Fruehauf trailer that originally carried a radar array. I cut about 300 lbs of steel off of the front and removed 5-6 l;eaves from the spring packs to drop the ride height a little bit. It has a pintle hitch, the air tank for air over hydraulic brakes, updated trailer wiring w/ 7 pin connector. The landing gear does work, it rolls great. The bed area is approx 5 1/2 x 11. I have used it to get about 1000 lbs of lumber and drywall from Home Depot and the springs barely squatted. You would be hard pressed to overload this trailer. I have more pics available upon request.

I would like to get $400 for the trailer. I am located just southeast of Mt Pleasant.

Holy overkill (for me), Batman. I have big utility trailer. I'm looking more for something light, and something that I can use for measurements to create a bed for my '10a project.

Thanks for the heads-up, though.

Craig

It looks very cool. Trust me, if I could justify a need for it, I'd be looking hard at this.

Caned? What, did you guys all go to Singapore and get into trouble or something? :tonka:


Good luck with the sale, captsolo. BTW, how did you know I knew Tim? I haven't talked with him for a while (I'm working in a different building now), but saw him in his ZJ not too long ago.

I am a member of 4given4x4 and am a close personal friend of Tim's so I hear things thru the grape vine.
