Last night's episode found the "Storage Hunters" at Big Bear, Calif. with auctioneer Sean Kelly, who knows all the regulars and has fun nicknames for the newbies.
The first unit is a contractor's unit equipped with its very own porta-potty. Jesse likes what he sees, with a cement mixer and something under a tarp. Jesse decides to run up the bids because everyone has their eyes on this one. One of the Alvarado brothers bumps heavily into Brandon, who is ready for an argument. The brothers get the bin for $1,950 after Jesse had fun running up the price. Under the tarp was a cement finishing machine. The rest of the equipment was in near-new condition.
The next one is mostly furniture, and it also has horseshoes and branding irons. Jesse got this one for $1,425. He found an old Stetson hat in one drawer and inside a piano bench was a wooden box containing a small pearl handle derringer pistol worth $2,000.
The next was a large horse trailer with contents unknown. Desert Dan got this one that contained, milk cans and lots of poop for his $2,300.
Next was an Airstream trailer that looked like it was in mint condition; another item with contents unknown. The Alvarado bros teamed up with Jesse and got it for $12,500. The inside looked like the makings of a pirate radio station with plenty of recording and sound equipment. As the brothers and Jesse had a good laugh, Lori & Brandon went home with nothing for this trip on this episode of "Storage Hunters."
