    Sears David Bradley Trailer - 1940s, 50s, 60s?

    Made it from Kentucky to Colorado and back. 3k miles, a few hundred not paved. The trailer itself did great. The Yakima rack is garbage for ANY offroad use. Will be making a custom 1.5 round tube rack to replace it with.

    What did you do with your trailer this weekend?

    That is a Sears Bradley farm trailer from the 40s or 50s. I have one too. So simple and fun to modify.

    Took the Sears trailer to the Rockies! Yakima rack did NOT stand up to the rough terrain. Planning on a tube rack in the near future. Along with custom canopy from Swiss Tops for security and added storage.

    Sears David Bradley Trailer - 1940s, 50s, 60s?

    After all that I wa finally able to put the thing together and drive it around a little. It does great behind the cruiser. I like the paint color and max coupler is fantastic. I need new lug nuts so I can use my 100 series wheels I stead of the tundra steelies. Eventually I'd like to get the...

    Sears David Bradley Trailer - 1940s, 50s, 60s?

    start with surplus trailer or home build?

    I recommend going from scratch. You can have a full tubular steal frame the way you want it. even the military trailers I've seen are made from channel. Build the frame first, then I do recommend sourcing a tub from somewhere. the m416 has lots of aftermarket support so you can find lids and...

    Sears David Bradley Trailer - 1940s, 50s, 60s?

    Ok voting ended, Haha. I went ahead and sprayed it white. I'll keep those vertical post mounts black. Thatll get touched up after the next coat of white dries. They're currently just painted with rust converter.

    Sears David Bradley Trailer - 1940s, 50s, 60s?

    Was going to keep the original patina but I chickened out after I welded a couple patch panels in. It just looked out of place and i decided to sand it all down. What color should I do? Either white, black or metallic silver. Or something crazy like a bright blue? My last trailer I painted...
