    I don’t believe I would want that trailer when it was brand new, I certainly wouldn’t want it at what looks like 20 years old or better. I don’t see any openings big enough on the bottom deck to open the doors on modern day large vehicles. Maybe some better pictures would help.

    Then door openings wouldn’t be an issue since you are going to be having them set on with a forklift. It looks like to me you couldn’t side load the middle of the bottom deck of the trailer. I guess if you factor that in and all the top decks worked and you bought it cheap.

    I mean they were heavy and built solid like the Miller T-7 but they were HEAVY. Lol. Bring coffee for your forklift driver because he’s not gonna like you at first.

    The trailers rot out from the inside. Take a small hammer and tap on the cross piece in the lower front of the trailer, if it sounds thin, it is a big job to replace it. Also drill a small hole in the pipe sections where water could be accumulated. They usually do not have drains. The support pipes that hold up the rear section also are suseptiable to rusting out. Any trailer over 23 years old is going to need welding repair. I do not think it will be warrantied.
