PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE LISTING BEFORE CONTACTING ME!
Located in Golconda, Nevada
Golconda is 15 miles east of Winnemucca.

I MAY be able to deliver this trailer to you, if necessary- contact me with your location to see if we can arrange this.

I have a clean, properly signed Nevada title in hand.

This is a 1963 Fruehauf equipment trailer.
Model 48TT

It has a single fixed axle with no suspension.
It's a dually axle (two wheels / tires on each side).

Tire size is 8.25-15TR
Recommended maximum tire pressure is 105PSI

16,000 pound gross weight rating
The title says the empty weight is 3,600 pounds, but I don't know if this is accurate.

It is equipped with a Lunette ring for use with a pintle hitch on your tow vehicle.

There was a 2-1/2" to 3" thick oak deck on it when I bought it, but the wood was poor, so it was removed and disposed of. Ready for a new deck of your choice to be installed.

The deck frame is 95-1/2" wide and 14', 5" long
A home-made beavertail extension was welded on by a previous owner,
making the existing deck length including the beavertail 16' , 4" long.

The tongue protrudes 4' past the front edge of the deck.
(So the trailer is a little over 20' long, overall).

Deck height is about 36"

The bed hand-tilts, with a hydraulic (or pneumatic?) ram that acts as a damper.
I think it could be retrofitted with a pump to make it a power tilt.

The lights are not all there, so you'll need to do some work on them or bring lights to tow it home.

Air brakes (I don't know if they're in working order)
They are not the spring-type, so they don't need to be caged to tow with a non air-brake tow vehicle.

The tongue jack is missing, but there is a retractable tongue stand installed.

All 4 tires are old and have fine cracking in the rubber, but they all hold air and have good tread.

I towed it 130 miles behind our 2016 Ford f150 to get it home.

It did very well at 60 MPH on I80 with about 600 pounds loaded on what remained of the wooden deck.
