Cub Rep Trailer

Postby GPP555 » Wed Mar 30, 2016 7:04 pm

Question for anyone out there that may have the answers. I own what I have been told was a IH Farmall Cub Reps trailer. It's 10' X 5 or 6' wide. The frame is basically an old boat trailer with 4 - 8" tires. The trailer was cut short and a flat deck was added that tilts so the tractor can be driven on. It is most definitely a trailer made for the IH Cub and is basically best for hauling it and other small pieces of equipment. It is not a long distance trailer according to todays standards, but does a great job around town.
Here is my question was there such a thing and if so are they rare and what would the approximation value be for one. It is about 80% restored with a few modifications. Hope to add a picture of the trailer tomorrow, but would appreciate any information that may be out there. '
Thanks

Posted tire size appears to be undersized for hauling a Farmall Cub. Perhaps build for a lawn mower/garden tractor. Standard Cub tractor without weights or implements, plus the weight of the trailer would be somewhere around 2000 lbs.
I have an excuse. CRS.

It sounds about like the trailers that were used to haul early Cub Cadets.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

If it is the one as Steve and Scrivet described (above), then the brochure states a capacity of 3500 lbs. Also shows what appears to be a Cub-sized tractor in the illustration.

My thinking is: If it is a trailer that an IH rep used, then there would need to be some sort of decal or ID stating such in order for collector value. Without that, there would be no way to make that claim and therefore, it's just a trailer. Perhaps a nice trailer, but just a trailer worth what other trailers the same size are selling for in north KY.

BTW: Welcome to the forum!

EDIT:
Here's a pic from the Wisconsin Historical Society's website. It shows a dealer in Kansas City, KS (where my '48 was purchased) loading up a Cub in the back of a truck. A small trailer, as shown above, could have been used by some dealers, but I'd think that more dealers would have chosen a big truck when faced with delivering a tractor or canvassing a rural area and not knowing the road conditions.

I took the 4-8 to be the tire size.

8 inch tires are still pretty dang small even with 4 of them. I think my 2-wheel jet ski trailer has larger tires than that!

This is what the trailer looks like. I made a mistake on the tire size. They are actually 10 or 12" tires, brain is fading with age. I do know that it is rated for 2000 lbs. It was also originally painted the IH Cub Yellow.

So here is the big question. This trailer is something I know longer use or even need. It is a great trailer for hauling mowers, ATV's and for the basic everyday need for yard work. It does not tow at all well when you get over 55 MPH and weight is towards the end of the trailer. I am looking to sell it, but am not putting a price out there because this is not the Classified thread. However I am going to ask for everyone's input on what they feel the value of it would be. If I am breaking any rules say so and I will modify this post.

Thanks for all the great information. Look forward to getting more.

What's it worth, I don't know. Guessing perhaps $200-.

Depending on your state law, a trailer for over the road use must have a title, licensed, and an inspection to be sold. For strictly off road/farm use, probably not registration require.

Use to live in Iowa. To register, license, a trailer, all you needed to do was significant work on the trailer and then certify that it was rebuilt or a new build.
