Purchasing used race car trailers can often times be a great way to save money on your race car transport needs. However, there are many considerations that should be taken in to account when purchasing a used trailer.
Main Factors in Determining ConditionThere are several items that should be carefully examined. These factors include:
- Frame Condition
- Tire Condition
First and foremost the condition of the trailer should be inspected throughly. Examine the under-body of the trailer for rust. If rust exists then it should be determined whether it is surface rust or has the rust completely penetrated the steel. If it has completely penetrated, then the frame may be compromised and the trailer should not be purchased without a professional certification. Surface rust should be immediately sanded, repainted and re-undercoat
