Is anyone familiar with Allegheny trailers? I gather they specialize in creating heavy-duty frames for utility companies, the few I've found via google seem to be pretty beefy.
I have a guy offering me a 4x8' Allegheny for a negotiable $150. All he can tell me is it has a pintle, seems to be made of I-beams, is rated for a #3000 load, has decent tires. He's an old farmer who bought it for the pickup bed that was on it and has no way of taking a photo for me.
Is this a worthy basis for a trailer build? Too beefy? Should I drive the 60 miles to look, or just pass..?
Yes, I know. Not much info to go on....
