car trailers

so my parents bought a truck. they have agreed to let me get a trailer to to my mustang on. Gonna to it to races, and mustang week in myrtle beach, as my a4 cant lol.
anyway, i put 4 wheels and tires i have on craigslist for sale for $450 or trade for mustang wheels or a trailer. i got a call from a guy with a trailer...
said its 14 feet long, 6 feet wide. needs tires, dual axle, has ramps, metal grate stuff for a bottom, brakes, and i think thats it. BUT its not registered... and it was a home made trailer... but he would trade it for my wheels and tires.

anything i should look out for? gonna look up CT dmv and how i would register.

and if i didnt get that, any suggestions? not much seems to show up on craigslist. i dont care for anything fancy. i just want legal, and able to haul my car.
thanks

As long as everything is really solid. I see no real issue with it. Just make sure there isn't much rust, the welds are solid, and it looks like it would hold a car...lol

Make sure you read up on on how to register it in CT. A home made trailer is one thing, a home made car trailer could be a huge headache. I just registered a 6x12 and it was a pain in the ***. You will definetly need to get it inspected so be prepared to waste an entire day in Whethersfield. I'm pretty sure they are the only inspection line that will inspect trailers.

My great grandpa makes a trailer a week and sells them for stupid profit. He's been doing it for years and people swear he makes them better than the local trailer places.

Yeah I looked it up more. Seems like it's gonna be a ***** to register so I'm probably gonna skip out on it and keep looking elsewhere. If ya ever hear of a cheap one Lmk lol

i was just going to say the same thing. i work for a landscaper and getting the trailers registered is a ***** and a half. even when they are manufactured ones with all the certifications and everything. ct is a tough state when it comes to regulating trailers for whatever reason. best bet is to buy/trade for a prefab one and call it a day. oh make sure there arnt any rust spots or extra welds on it too lol
