    Default Free Military Trailer - Korean War vintage?

    Free Trailer. I've just been informed its a M105. Thanks. It has significant rust in places but the tires have held air for the last 20 years with out refilling. (Which is astounding to me.) I just trailed it about 7 miles to a new location without difficulty. Please see pictures. Its located on a small island in Washington State.IMG_3935.jpgIMG_3936.jpgIMG_3937.jpg

    Thanks for your interest. I'll try to remember to contact you if anyone else wants it. Then you can arm wrestle for it. ; )

    The latter 2 options sound the most interesting but there is regular ferry service from Anacortes, Washington to Lopez Island and the other San Juan Islands. Ferry schedules and fares are available on https://www.wsdot.com/ferries/. The bright point is that you will not be charged for an eastbound sailing to the mainland with a trailer in tow. All eastbound traffic is free. I'd be happy to help you plan your trip. Cheers, Paul
