There are three free trailers on craigslist right at this moment in Sacramento. I keep my eye out for them but not racing out to pick one up. They all seem to come without any DMV paperwork which can be tricky when trying to reuse the trailer for a tiny house or utility trailer. It’s not impossible to say the least, just more work than having a title in hand. Here’s the funniest one. It sounds like total loss as a travel trailer but might be perfect for a small tiny house. I just had to share.
I was looking for lumber but ran across this post on craigslist for 50 pounds of nails for $5. It’s really amazing what there is to find on craigslist. Most of it goes really fast, at least here in Sacramento, but there’s always something and sometimes you luck out.
And here’s why you need to watch the free stuff on craigslist like a hawk. I emailed them about six hours (the length of a lifetime on craigslist) after they posted these 2x4s on craigslist. I never got a call or email so I assume the lumber is long gone. I’ll just need to be more persistent and observant.
