Default Warning: Don't park your trailer in the weeds

Or the axle will just up and disappear. You have been warned.

I can see this on a Craigslist ad;

single axle trailer like new can be upgrade to double axle if you get a heavier boat someday.

Yep. Not sure if it's just any weeds that will do it though. Should I involve an agronomist to see if we can make a determination re: detrimental weeds vs trailer friendly weeds.

It looks like they even took the springs and hardware from the front axle If it had spings
Frustrating

Well if it's any consolation. The front axle is in better shape.

Did you store it at a marina for free for two years and try to attach damages to said marina for weed-related damages? Asking for a good friend.

Not a marina. But do leave it parked at work most of the time. Thats where this is, inside the fenced yard at work.

I used to have a problem, where my valid Trailer Plates (license plates) would disappear when I parked the rig at an open air, fenced storage lot. Lots of my lot neighbors were landscapers.

Happened twice before I started attaching the plate with zip ties and taking it with me between trips.

Nice thing in SC is no plates are required on trailers that are 2500lbs and under empty weight. On those that are larger, permanent tags are only $90.....for life.

definitely your employer’s fault. They allowed you to keep it on their property, so the least they could do is maintain it... I would demand a new trailer..
