I bought a dolly trailer so this thing needs a new home.

It's a 1978 R & I that originally held Tom Buckles yellow Barron sprint. I chose an R & I because I like these trailers and it seems like most B boats came with them.

This is a 4 bunk trailer.

I paid Tom $800 for it then replaced the 8" painted fenders with 10" polished stainless fenders ($600) and added brand new axles ($300) just for perfect fit.

It has new wheels and Tires ($1,100) a swing away tongue ($300) fresh paint, new lights and new wiring ($1,700). <-It cost me $500 to have the old powder coating removed or it would've been $1,200.

The bunks didn't fit the Biesemeyer perfect so I recontoured them.

The fender pads are backed with polished diamond plate ($200).

As you can see I've got $5,000 in this thing.

First $3,000 takes it.

I have seen this in person a few times, I can honestly say, it is better than a new one.

That hillbilly trailer had me rolling on the floor. :D I wonder if it has hydraulics. :D

You have a damn nice trailer that is well worth what you are asking. :)devil Oh, and not everyone east of California has a hillbilly trailer. My ride is on a Hensley with polished fenders and frenched lights. It is a family boat as well.....just a nice one!
