New member- first post. Lots of great information here.

Acquired this trailer on an impulse a couple of weeks ago. It is a Bantam T3-C. The nameplate is attached but barely legible. Near as I can tell it is # 4017. Still sorting out my plans for it. Probably just gonna clean it up and paint it.

It's pretty solid- but needs sandblasting to clear surface rust off the underside so I can see how bad the rust is. Needs new tires so that is the first thing I am working on. Also repacked the bearings which looked pretty good. The tailgate chains are gone and the gate was bolted shut. The safety chains have been modified. Has the original Fulton hitch coupler but the locking tab is gone. I am going to try to make a replacement. If anyone has some good closeup pics of one I would appreciate seeing them. I've seen the ones on the the Bantam webpage.

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.

Here's a couple of pics:

Thanks. It will still be a project, but that's what I wanted.
