Trailer Reno: Final Thoughts

Trailer Reno: Final Thoughts

As of last week, the Miley is officially #SOLD. Check out these before and after pictures:

I ended up getting less $$$ for it than I wanted (isn’t that always how it goes?), but honestly after spending so much time marketing it on Facebook/Craigslist, I’m just glad to have the whole thing done and over with. Here are some of the most important lessons that I learned from the Miley:


════ Don’t settle for something that might work. Having a project didn’t bother me, but it was super sad to end up putting a lot of work into a trailer that I couldn’t keep.

════ Floors, lights, and frame—know what you’re looking for! I had no idea what I was looking at when I went to see the Miley. Now I know that I don’t want to buy a project that involves any welding, but I don’t mind replacing tires! Next time I’ll have a check list to take with me when I look at trailers.

════ Everything looks better with a fresh coat of paint. As much as I hated putting paint on the Miley while I was doing it, the results were so worth it. I wouldn’t mind painting another trailer.


I’m hoping to have the resources to look for a new trailer by the time that winter rolls around. In the mean time, the money from the Miley is going towards something pretty awesome… but more on that later. 😛
