To restore a trailer... or not?

Bit of a dilemma…
DIY project
72: Do it up or sell it off?
39: It’s rusty.
72: Yes, but it’s a good retirement project.
39: How much will it cost to refurbish?
72: Probably three hundred.
39: But there’s better trailers for sale on TradeMe for a hundred or two.
72: Maybe.
39: And nowadays you can borrow one from a hardware store for free to carry your timber home.
A trailer is a pioneering cultural icon.
A necessary piece of DIY equipment for carrying lengths of timber.
Maintaining the trailer yourself, it becomes part of the family.
If you’re over 60, you’re likely to come out with things like, “Be a real man. Own a trailer.”
If you’re in your 30s, you’re more likely to more sensibly suggest, “Borrow one.”
