Default SOLD!! Bantam TC-3 Trailer jeep off road trailer $600 FIRM last drop!

]I am selling my latest jeep off road adventure trailer. It's a Bantam TC-3 with a liftgate. If you are looking for a bueaty queen, you will want to pass on this one! It's in excellent functional shape with zero rust, but it has a few bumps and bruises and modifications by myself and the previous owner.

Here is a list of what I have done:

-Complete disassemble and sand blasting down to bare metal - no rust left
-replaced the fenders with brand new galvanized fenders
-POR 15 on the chassis and bottom of tub
-Hurculiner on the inside of the tub
-Exterior of tub has been primered and painted (nothing fancy)
-Brand new wiring
-Brand new lights
-Brand new reflectors
-Vintage combat 2 piece rims w/tires (approx 32" tall - 16 x 6" rims) These were sand blasted (front only) also and painted to match the rims on my XJ.
-Brand new safety chains
-Brand new storage box mounted on the front
-Brand new heavy duty military canvas cover
-Brand new bearings
-Brand new leaf springs, bolts and plates.
-I also mounted 2 scepter water cans to the outside of the bed. Works great, but again, I'm not an artist so it's not the prettiest set up.

Like I mentioned before, it's not something I would call 'restorable' if you want a collector's peice, but it works AWESOME functionally both on and off the road. I've taken it on numerous trips up north (over 500 each trip) one time loaded with 700lbs and it pulls effortlessly and straight up to 80mph (I'm sure higher, but I didn't try). If you are looking for a trailer for behind your jeep, pick up or any off road (or on road for that matter) vehicle, this is it. It's narrow enough so that it doesn't stick out, even behind a CJ.

If you ever wanted one of these, now is the time to buy it. You can sell the tires and rims for $200 themselves. $600 FIRM last and final drop. You will never find one this cheap with everything basically brand new.

That pic was taken about 2 days after I installed the new leafs. One of the hangers was sticking, so it 'tweaked' the bed. I sprayed the hanger down with Kroil and it loosened up and I have noticed the twist. I have cover on it now, so I can't tell for sure.
When I pull it out of the garage for more pics tomorrow, I'll take the same angel shot to show it's sitting fine now.

you should pull the combat rims and sell them to someone with an MB or GPW they dont belong on the civilian bantam trailer, and they are worth some money to the WWII guys.
then sell the trailer to me for half price and I will paint it OD green and tow it behind my jeep!

Yeah, I tried selling them seperate at one time on Craigslist and here, but no bites. You could always buy the trailer and sell them!! It wouldn't hurt my feelings at all....

Bump for a no BS, no negotiating, no trades lower price. I thought this was sold on Ebay but the seller backed out. $700 for one week then it's back on Ebay. You will NEVER be able to buy one in this condition for this price EVER again. If you ever wanted one of these, now is the time to buy it!

A 'what the heck, why not' bump. If I sell it cool, if not, I'll use it!
