Retired AF Lifer!
Well I finally stumble onto a freebie I can actually use. All I had to do was do a VIN check, buy plates and it was mine. It started life as an old Leland snowmobile trailer. Yes it needs help, 4 of the 6 crossmembers are pretty well gone. My neighbor across the road builds/modifies trailers for a living so he's the doctor and I'm the unskilled help. The plan is to narrow it from almost 7 feet down to 5, put in new crossmembers and lower it so with it's tilt bed I won't need ramps to load the tractor. Since it's all steel, narrowing it will reduce the weight and make it easier for the Ranger to pull. I'll keep you posted as we go.
