Badger,
If you need the replacement, consider the purchase of an appropriate aluminum trailer.

Less maintenance, and less weight to pull for your multiple trips should equate to better fuel mileage.

If you are still thinking about it contact Randy Stevens at Hamburg marine
I actually live in Madison WI but definitely like Northern MN for family vacations. Lac Seul is a "guys fishing trip". Thanks for the recommendations.

It certainly needs a thorough maintenance check as tires are looking worn, brakes need work and making sure bearings are still good. Bunks, lights etc... all in good shape. I've been fortunate that I've never had a breakdown but I've certainly seen more than my share on trips and don't want to "push my luck" if it's time to replace. Thanks for the feedback !!

Surface rust or push your fingers through the frame rust???


If it's just surface rust I'd clean it up and run it,..


I had to replace my trailer last year, I could put my fingers through the tubed frame,.....It was 22 years old,..

If you have rust on the wheels, consider buying new wheels for the trailer.
Really not a lot of fun to have a flat or a wheel fall off a trailer in the hinterland.
