Tandem tow dolly car/motorcycle

Any interest in a tandem tow dolly? I found this in Cincinnati and now do not think I can use it. I have a bad back and neck and believe putting a car on and tying car down would get me down. The previous owner bought this unit and towed it to FL and back once. But soon passed. Wife let sit a couple or 3 years before listing on Craigslist. It does look like it started life as a Master Tow dolly but was given the front platform. Whoever did the job it appears professionally designed and welded. I cannot find any numbers on it and previous owner lost all paperwork. I received bill of sale only. I have never tagged in AL as it is not required for tow dollies.
I stripped it down and painted the white w 1 quart Rustoleum paint and then 1.5 quarts white. I did use a brush but it leveled out nicely. I also completely replaced bearings/seals with new car tie down straps. I also installed a new break away battery and box. The brakes work great and so does break away. I replaced all bolts to hold deck plate to frame with stainless steel bolts, built the front to hold loading ramp as rock guard, and added 6 very strong tie downs eye bolts from Tractor Supply. All lights work (7 way round plug) and tires are in good shape. I have not looked lately but they did not have any cracks or dry rotting that I could see.
This thing looks great and I have no issue with build or shape its in but just my health. I need to get $3000 firm. This is located in south west Birmingham (Hoover). It would have to be picked up here or well work a deal for a reasonable amount and I can maybe meet someone somewhere.
Please contact me with and questions. Thx, Dennis.

Well, I thought I could use but bending for more than 5 seconds is bad. Bending for 5 seconds and ratcheting is a downer!!
Given that, I understand Master Tow has 2 tow dollies with different size axles. This is the large axle, I think 3000 or 3500 axle as etrailer helped w bearings and seals and that's what they identify with.
Anyway, if u change ur mind give me a jingle!!!! Thx Dennis.

Folks, I really expected someone to be interested in this. May I ask if folks did look, did like, but something told u know? I know there are some really nice one's made out there and the price to match. So, wasn't sure if:
Price?
Maybe home made?
Weight?
etc???
Thx Dennis.
