I began a tiny house project, scored a great trailer for cheap, put a ton of work into it, and circumstances changed for me such that the build is not realistic.  It's a great trailer, and I'd love to let it go to someone who is looking for a project of their own.  It was once a mobile home in the 50's.  I bought it from a salvage yard, scoured and painted it, rewired the brakes, installed a jack, and began joisting the subfloor. 

Odd caveat: I was planning for a tiny house that is 10 ft wide (move it once and park it), so I added a foot onto each side.  This also allowed the rim joist to be supported at 4 points on each side rather than just at the corners.  If someone is excited about this, I'll leave it, but if you want to tow it around, I can cut the extensions off.  Please message me if you have questions.  I genuinely want to sell this to someone who is excited to take this to their own project.  Way way cheaper than a new tiny house trailer, solid and sturdy.

Hi William, that's very kind of you to offer up! A question that interested parties may have is "roughly where are you located?"

And how much, and do you have the decking too, and will you deliver?
