Trailer: No Trailer Yet

Hi all,
We checked out this UHaul over the weekend and unfortunately had to take a pass. Our rig (small 4cyl) would haul her, but not comfortably, and that was a test-drive without gear. Hadn't realized that UHauls were a little heavier than Bolers. Don't want to scare anyone off, they are still a light trailer by all accounts- just not as light as a Boler. The ad is here:

Shell was in excellent shape, frame itself was good (a little surface rust, nothing that a scuffing and some Tremclad wouldn't fix- would suggest undercoating to keep it that way). A little interior/cosmetic work is required, but the stove, range and exhaust fans seemed to be working fine. Furnace fan was working too but we didn't let it run long enough to see if it would get hot. We would have her home right now if she had been a little bit lighter.

Hope our loss can be someone else's gain- happy trailer hunting!

UHauls were made as someone once said, "to fall down the Grand Canyon and survive," because they were rental units. That is both a benefit and price. They were well-made but heavy. It is amazing how many of these still have their original curtains and seat covers! The curtains were the first thing I changed. (For the purists, I have kept my original curtains, although I do not use them, and the seat covers we do use are still the originals.)

I will post this link over on uhaulcamper.com too.

U-haul stats have the 13-footer at 1250# Of course I don't know how that relates to reality, but the frame certainly looks to have more metal (heck, the propane tank holder alone probably weighs 50#! (And they all only had an icebox standard, so that is without a fridge.)

I like how the frame also supports the outer sides of the trailer - I think that would be great especially if one intended to do a lot of rough-roading. Adds a bit of protection, too.
