Ambassador 28 ft. it is supposed to be in great shape in terms of frame and no separation sagging etc. I want to do things right and starting with contacting you as to whether I need to do anything with wheels, axles, rims, etc. I saw your tip about the furnace. I'll have to take a look at it when I get it home.
Make sure the bearings are lubed and that the trailer has operable brakes and decent tires.
Make sure a good load equalizing hitch will be used.
I don't know how far you will be pulling the trailer. If it's not very far, take your time. If it's real far, take your sweet time.
After the trailer is home, and you have time to check it out, let me know if you have any questions.
