bow trailer steps

someone threw three of those into our scrap metal pile at work.2 now sit on my either side of my trailer and 1 for a spare.there was absolutely nothing wrong with them.they appear to have come off of a large trailer because the platform is nice and big.they even have the marker lights on them.
