Tractor hauler?

I found an old flat trailer that has been sitting for a while. It has Allis Chalmers Stickers on it. It is 26 feet overall and the bed is 7'8" x 21'. It is loaded with junk, but the frame looks very solid. The frame looks to be 6" steel tubing, and has two axles. It would need 4 tires, lights and wiring and a new floor. I really cant afford much, so I was thinking it would be a good project trailer. Anyone familiar with this thing? It seems to be very low to the ground too. It doesn't have any sides at all. The axles are right in the middle, with 11 feet of bed hanging out the back. Would this be a decent tractor hauler. It would probably only see 30 miles one way to the local county fairs. Any thoughts or information would be appreciated. Oh yeah, I will be hauling an AC WD45. I am not sure how much to offer the guy who owns it. It hasn't been used for several years.Thanks, Dennis.

You are money ahead, even if you was given the trailor for free, to buy a new 16 or 18 foot utility trailor.
By the time you clean it up, repair the floor, put new tires on it, fix the brakes and lites... you have spent much more than the price of a new one.
I sell C&M trailors and a standard 16' utility with twin 3500 lb axles goes for around $825.oo.
New and ready to go.
You can buy some even cheaper than that.
I also agree with he overhang problem, that also can cause loading and towing problems.
If you load a heavy item from the rear you might cause the truck to raise off the ground due to leverage on the tongue.
If you dont get more weight in front of the axles than behind then it will not track right when running down the highway.
Just my input and experiance.

I have a 16' 7000# tandem axel tubing frame that works real well for this job. The long tail behind the axels is is a big problem in close places. Gordon
