Maybe in Eagle, CO this is a good deal for an old rusty home made trailer.

But they're MilSpec! And manufactured in 1969. And appear to be different lengths. Maybe the frame is what really makes it a worthwhile deal? If the rubber (neoprene?) has been well cared for, maybe there ARE countless more trips left in them - because they're MilSpec.

Those are air rollers for moving extremlly heavy objects like beached ships and thing like that. They would be the toughest thing on the river.

OK, I'll eat my snarkiness. With oars included, maybe we move the post into the "Great Deals" thread? Oars, a frame, and pair of tubes that actually DO have countless trips left in them?

Could be pretty sweet to strap those tubes to the sides of your raft, mini J-Rig!

Wow, that's interesting! The different length of tubes (diameter too?) is a bit strange. I wonder how that affects tracking. I wonder what length and weight the tubes are? It's already got me thinking about creating a raft out of massive inner tubes. Oh wait, someone in Russia already did that....

It somewhat reminds me of the ICON Derelict projects, like this one:

I should have said, those would have been the toughest thing on the river. They are 47 years old after all. They would also be the ugliest thing on the river. I would probably pay 200 for this so it is where it belongs in the worst deals.
