Hey any one down south looking for a trailer, I found this on Ebay, looks like a very fair price (right now anyways)

That trailer is 5 minutes from my house if I catch the one stoplight

For the current price, $500, not bad. But no brakes for a boat 3,000-3,600 lbs.? I guess since I use a small SUV to pull my boat, brakes are a necessity.

Strange that no brakes are installed as most States in not all would require them for carrying a boat that size.

Didn't catch that. But easy enough to install if the trailer stays under 1500.00

The old saying to good to be true comes to mind.

Ohh wait, so does the act of stealing trailers while people are boating, then painting them, adding fake Reg numbers.

Lets not forget the part that the trailer has Never been Registered. At 500 the wheels and tires are worth almost that.

Buyer Beware.

OK, guys. I'm pretty sure that seller is Land O Lakes Marine, a Moomba dealer. I don't think he's running an inboard trailer fencing operation.

I have seen those trailers sitting there for some time, its legit, and think in florida for some stupid reason you dont need trailer brakes till your over 3500lbs--i could be wrong

According to this site he might be OK in TX (4500?)

We have something like that here in WI as well.
