Trailer Advice

I posted this in the genral trialer forum also -- but figured you guys would have a better feel on the local prices anyway.

I'm looking to buy a new trailer. I found a used one today and went and looked at it.

It is a 16' x 7' tandem axle trailer with 1/2 ton axles and electric brakes on one axle. It has 4' expanded metal sides.

He is asking $1000. Does this sound like a good price?

It is three years old. Tires have about 75% tread.

The only thing that worries me a little bit is the 1/2 ton axles. Wondering if this is enough for my general landscaping. I had 3,500 lb axles on my other trailer.

I suppose the most weight I probably ever put in it is 5 yards of mulch. I figure mulch weighs in at about 1000lbs /yd. So I wouldn't be able to carry that much mulch anymore.

Look forward to hearing your opinions.
