Question about Boating
Rust on a boat trailer is not necessarily a reason not to buy it. The extent of the rust is very much the question. For example, I recently bought a boat which was built in the 1960s and came complete with the trailer that was constructed specifically for it, to enable a perfect balance and therefore, easy launch and retrieve. This trailer is extremely rusty, but the underlying steel is sound - I've had it thoroughly checked! So, when restoration of the boat is complete, the trailer is next to be restored, involving grit blasting of all the steel then galvanising, replacement wheels, rollers and winch to make it as good as new, at a fraction of the price of a new 2.5 tonne generic trailer.

I wouldn't recommend purchasing a boat trailer that has issues with rust.While you may get a good deal on it now, you will more than likely end up needing to replace it much earlier than you'd like to.
One more thing, check that the hitch on the trailer is tight so that you can haul your boat safely. You don't want to be causing any accidents while driving with your boat in two because your boat has detached from the trailer.
