I am thinking of buying this trailer to do our annual labor day pig on, and a few other get togethers thru the year. It has a little surface rust but I would sand that down and apply a fresh coat of paint. The lights work and the tires are good. I'm buying it for $200. Just a little nervous about the size. The cooking area is about 2.5 x 4.5 ft. Give are take. Do you guys think it is worth the $200 bills? The grill lids are not attached in the pics but I am told they attach easily.

Thanks

Two bills ain't bad for that. Plenty big for a whole hog. Shouldn't take a lot to get her in top shape. "Lipstick & Rouge"

What kind of axle does it have, is it strait? Do all the Welds look solid including the Tongue? Looks like the tires have been sitting, may need new ones. All in All $200.00 is not to bad if solid.

Can it be licensed and does it have a CLEAR title?

I think it looks worth 200. Some TLC and your rolling. The bank my wife works for has one that looks just like that and we do a pig on it every year, dog and burgers a couple of other times. It works well.

Use a wire wheel like this, repaint then keep the sucker well oiled

I thought of you twice today. Once when I heard Prince and Maceo play "Pass the Peas" and the second when I was at Frouhberg's Vegetable Market I saw some fresh shelled purple hull peas.

That's great. Peaspurple is an inside joke with me and my lovely wife. Didn't get the grill today the guy had to take his wife to the hospital, but he u gonna deliver it tomorrow.

Can't wait

I doubt it will weigh a ton which is what scrap goes for here, but two bills will still be good buy for someone. Steve.

So I got the grill this morning and I am more pleased than I thought I'd be. It is very well built and very sturdy. I'm gonna clean it up and repaint it. Can't wait to fire it up. 66040

I've been looking for something like that down here in Bama for large fajita cooks. Great score, I would've been all over that with a quickness!

Great deal for sure. If the surface rust is light warm water CLR and a green scotch brite will work wonders on light surface rust with very little effort.

It's a belson. I believe it was made in Illinois. Sold by belson outdoors.

Finally got the rust off and repainted with rust oleum high heat. Did a reseasoning burn and coated the while rig with crisco and Pam. Good and heavy coat of crisco. Looks 100 times better than when I bought it. Gonna cook on it this weekend. I just need to put on the new thermo.

$200. It's worth more than that in scrap price. Heck of a deal.
