    What parts do you need? Most trailers are made with universal parts on wheels, bearings, axles, brakes, hitches, etc. There was an explosion of companies making utility and car hauler trailers in that era, a lot are not still around.

    I've had good luck getting parts from etrailer.com. You need to know exactly what you need though.

    Around here - trailers seem to hold their value pretty well, especially when they're maintained. Axles, bearings, and hubs are pretty common items, most are what they call a 3,500lb axle. I used etrailer when I converted my hydraulic brakes to electric a couple years ago. You can take some measurements and give them a call, should be able to get parts you need. I'm assuming this is an open bed, double axle, 16 ~ 18ft long. Is the floor wood or metal?

    It’s a 16 foot it’s pretty narrow, could barely fit my 72 with 205/60/15 in there, the floor is metal though I’m looking to making it a complete flat bed if worth the money and time

    I think DICO used to be a San Diego trailer company, but since moved up to Riverside or Redlands.
