I wasn't sure if this should be posted in the general chat section or in the for sale
forum where I have been hanging out for the last year! But, there is a change in my profile, I am no longer eggless and just had to share!
I feel like Santa brought me a Christmas present. A few weeks ago, I searched craigslist in the bay area as I do nearly every day and found a "bowler" trailer for free. It took me a minute to realize bowler=boler! I wasn't the first to respond to the ad, second as usual.
But the first responder wasn't showing up to pick up the trailer, and the owner needed it to be gone by the end of the month. I took a day off and made the 200 mile trip to pick it up. 4 hours over and 7 hours back! No troubles. Just rain and traffic.
This little guy had been parked for 15 years. But the tires
weren't cracked, the bearings still had grease and the lights
worked. It pulled like a champ. The door tried to come open, but we wired it shut. And for the guy that thought I was too picky---it has mold inside and was slimy green outside. But that seemed reasonable for the price. Its a honey of a trailer....boler honey that is. Now Im trying to find that picture I saw about a year ago of a honey that had been restored. (It sure is hard to search when Im jumping for joy!
Thanks so much to all the folks that have helped me find a trailer, and you can bet I'll be here looking for advice!
Merry Christmas to all.
And thanks to the wonderful family that passed on this beautiful little trailer.
