Anyone have one?

I got an AMAZING deal on one. Guy was asking $3,250; got him down to $2,700. Supposedly sells new for $5,000+ & its an '06. It's a PILOT Express. 18-footer.

It's been wrecked, but needs only minor repairs. Could use new tires. All lights work, brakes work.
Dual 3,500LB axles.

Question is: Are they good? I've never heard of PILOT before, and I can't find reviews online.

This will be my first enclosed trailer so I'm pretty excited!
I posted here because I need quick answers!
Thanks!

Just from the description you wrote, I would not consider it. Don't let the joy and happiness of buying a trailer whether it be a enclosed or not tarnish your decision to buy a good trailer.

If you already bought it why are you asking what people think now?

Figure the cost for repairs and a set of new tires ($400 plus) and see if there is enough savings over a new trailer to make it worthwhile for you to purchase. Everyone has their own criteria as to what constitutues a "good deal", so what to one person might be a pass situation, to another it might be worth buying.

but that would require he does a bit of research! He's after the fastest answer he can get. If he doesn't want to take the time to investigate a given brand to see whether it's good or not, he might as well buy whatever is out there. It never crossed my mind to get excited over buying a trailer. :dancing: :cool2:

I would pass. 6 Year old enclosed trailer that has been wrecked. Would say 2k.

I guess I should clarify:
The wreck was minor; no damage to main frame. Repairs have been made & you can barely tell. Basically the guy's hitch broke (not on the trailer) & the trailer slid into a guard rail. When you click the ad it's the bottom right there in the front. On the inside you can see some light coming through, but all I figure is some kind of sealant or just replace that board section because its the board thats chipped. It's actually in pretty good condition for it to be 6+ years old.

Still indecisive. Seems like a good deal that might could even be profitable if I decided to sell again.

:confused:
