I think each bought theirs for $100 and they were 15 - 20 feet long.
Most of the time they will give them away.

If you're time is worth the amount of effort, you could just bring the scrap to the dump for like $60 bucks. Then you have a 60$ 5th wheel trailer for a F ton of labor hours stripping it down lol
