Remember about a month ago when I set goals for the winter and I told myself I wasn’t going to make any big purchases because I wanted to pay off some of my credit card debt? HA HA HA, I crack myself up.
This is a 1978 Miley two horse straight load that I spotted on Facebook right before Christmas. I’ve always known I was doomed to end up with a straight load (they’re a third of the price of a slant load in my area and I’m #broke), but when I messaged its seller the measurements of the trailer sounded promising (a little too promising…) and I had a whole bunch of free time anyways what with the holiday break, so I figured I might as well drive the 115 miles to look at it. The worst that could happen would be that I ended up passing on the trailer and just had a nice drive to the coast and back.
The measurements the seller gave me did turn out to be a little bit off. It’s a tad bit shorter than what I was looking for, but I think that it should do okay. If not, the worse that happens is that I fix it up a little bit, sell it, and call it a lesson learned! I have an appointment set up to have it looked at next Friday so that I can get a list of all the things that it needs done. It’s going to be a fun adventure!
