They look like they are both pretty much all there. There's gotta be a story behind having two.

Living just 20 miles away I went to scope these out, well pictures sometimes makes something look what it is not
The owner just told me that in the heat the tire exploded on one, and yes, a goodly amount of damage, also it looks like the other on at one time had a fair amount of body work on it
IMHO, too pricey for th amount of work to bring back, especially around the curved rear lights, and I did learn the bad point of a u-haul, really noway to modify, everything is molded right into the whole unit, so you either like the layout and go for a few upgrages of doors, and some other cosmetic's suger

Yea......I know about the blow out...I got both for $3700.00 and had a crew going by there to do a job so going after them is not going to be a expense.. they are going to pull them home next week on thier return trip ... Also this is going to be a father and son project...We are going to fix them up then sell both and split the profits..Thought it was a little high also but this was something my son really wanted to do so I think we will come out OK..I've got most everything we need to do the renovation and I've got pretty darn good fiberglassing...Better than setting on the couch twittling my thumbs.....

Randy, you got a good deal at that price for two, IMHO. You will find that the UHauls are very well engineered and built trailers. Aside from a few parts (like the tail light lenses that you already asked about), most parts are available somewhere. Even the original decals are available on eBay.

Take lots of before, during and after pictures!

You got that right....I just hope ole "POP" doesn't do all the work and the son get all the profit...But I don't think that will happen he's a great kid and was looking for something we could do together and I think these will work out great..I'll keep everyone updated on the progress with pictures and renovation idea's...So look out for it.... Coming soon.... "U-Haul Overhaul"
