Default tralier questions

so i bought a trailer today .... it was a old pop up that has been taken off and a steel floor put on it. my question is will this haul my geo tracker? should i op for some good tires? right now it has load range c 6 ply tires on it. also should i beefen the springs? right now it has 3 leafs on it. but on a good note it has electric brakes its 12x6.5 and pretty darn sturdy. some one did a crappy weld job on the "fenders" but i think ill hack em off and just drive straight over the tires as they only stick up about a inch. unless its illegal to not have fenders on it, not like the tires sit out from the bed. ill get pics posted tomorrow of it.


also what do i need to do to make it legal? weigh it and go to s.s?

why would you buy it and then ask if it could haul what you need it to?

that seems backwards to me.

wait.. was this trailer bought, or just left unlocked by some unfortunate fellow?
