Howdy folks! Didn't see another post on this, so I figured I'd write up my own! If you guys know of another, please link it and I'll delete this one!

So I found an S-280 Shelter with the dollies for $500. My question is regarding the dollies: Does anyone know if they need to be titled in PA? A "Tow Dolly" does not need to be here, but these are not regular tow dollies! If they do need titled, can anyone walk me through the process? Current owner does not have a title or anything and it doesn't look like they've ever been!

I plan on starting my own ammo loading company, and I want to set up the shop in the shelter, pull it to gun shows with my CUCV, and make and sell right on site!

Thanks in advance for the info folks!

Better check with BATFE first to see if they will allow a mobile ammunition manufacturing facility as the first step, and get it writing! Then talk to your insurance agent once you have approval from BATFE in writing. Don't know how it is in the northeast, but here in SC the ammo dealers at gun shows carry upwards of 40 different calibers/bullet weights and don't have time to reload while the show is going on. Oh, and the S-280 on that dolly is he-double-cadlesticks to back up, plus the contents are liable to be all over the place unless secured down for the trip. Nice idea for utilizing military surplus, but I'm not sure it will be practical, safe or economical.

another thing to consider, you mentioned pulling it with a CUCV.
If it's the M720 dolly I'm pretty sure towing it with the CUCV will be more than the CUCV is rated to tow.
Add to that, the M720 dolly is air over hydraulic brakes, which require a tow vehicle with an air brake system.

Might want to rethink either the tow vehicle or the trailer to use as your reloading center.
