I can't remember ever seeing any dolly wheels that big. Looks like the missing axle might have been taken out where it sits. If you blow the picture up it looks like hoses laying in front of the axle thats still there.

I saw the cut out for the second axel as well but when you look at the frame there are no mounting brackets or holes that match the brackets on the axel that is there.

Is the axle an "I" beam ?  Can't quite see it alhough it's set up for vacuum brakes .    Fruehauf was about the only mfgr that used I beam axle .   And thosed big dolly wheels[probably aluminum ] were a Fruehaf trademark .

This trailer is on property that i am cleaning up. i have to remove it, but i cannot do so without cutting it up. If it is something that someone would like to have i would much rather not cut it up. Is there a market for these? If so what would it be worth? also, does anyone know about what year it may be? thanks

Where the trailer is located would help. Value, about what it'd cost to get it hauled out of there. Would someone want it? I'd guess someone would like to restore it, especially if it was close enough.

That looks like a very interesting trailer.  The large roller on the back and short "ramp" make is seem like something may have rolled on/off the trailer.  No idea what that could have been though.

As far as if someone would want it.  I'll say that is a definite yes.  I for one would want it if close enough to make it reasonable to get (I'm in Ohio)  As to value, unfortunately it would probably be hard to get more than the scrap value.  Time frame is always a problem with items like this...if you give it enough time you could probably find a buyer...but in the short term finding someone who wants an old trailer will be harder.  I would try listing it here and on craigslist before just cutting it up.  It's too bad you can't move it and hold on to it for a bit.
