Does anyone recommend purchasing a fixer up trailer hopper and if not what experience have you had that makes it a negative decision/venture

Are you looking at buying a trailer that has be wrecker ?? and how handy are you at doing major rebuilds , and if you are looking at a 10 plus year old trailer with milllons of mile on it make sure you check the subframes , and hows the sloop sheet are think about how thin those sloop sheet s can be after thousand of loads
I think you would be better at looking for a used trailer the is about 5 years old

Just keep in mind, everyplace you weld, wether aluminum or steel, will break right beside that weld 2 years later
