Hey guys,
I called a local trailer place today to get a quote on a 5' X 10' Utility Trailer with ramp gate. They quoted me $1135.00. Here's the details.

5' X 10'
14" Tires
12" Tall side rails
wood floor
I think 3500lb axle and 2990 GVWR

Does the GVWR sound correct or is that probably what is can support? Does this price sound reasonable, good, or bad? Thanks for your opinions guys.

Howie, I have a 5x10 with rear ramp gate, new treated lumber deck, 3500lb axle and 15" tires for sale for $700. I am a bit further from you than MacLawn in NE Ohio. I think $1135 is a bit on the high side as that trailer new here goes for about $950.

I paid $840 for mine with a steel deck 2 years ago. It had the same specs.

Why so small? Atleast get a 6X12 that's considered a standard trailer (can fit a 60" z). If you buy that, in a couple months time you'll be shopping for a new one.

Exactly what I was thinking!

He doesnt have a ztr yet, why need a 6x12 for push mores man? Anyway, price sounds a little steep, even if new and immaculate condition. Might consider a good used trailer.

i can't believe that trailer is that much. when i bought my 5x10 i got it for 585plus taxes and it was brand new except it had a 2000 pound axle. then i upgraded to a 6.5x16 for 2100 with a one electric brake axle and it has been a great trailer

I agree with others, buy bigger...plan for the future. Plus, you hardly ever hear of people say "Durn, I wish I had bought a smaller trailer".

That price sounds crazy also. I bought my 5X10 about 3-4 years ago (15" tires, wood floor, 12 high sides, 4' ramp, very well built trailer and it was new $425. Same place is selling them now for about $600. They were just gettting started when I bought mine, lucked out.
