Wells Cargo

There's a 7x14 enclosed for sale in my area that is 2 yrs old. I was just wondering what this trailer goes for new? He's asking $4500 but I was thinking to offer $4k. Dealers in my area are closed today so I figured I'd ask here.

I think the extra foot on the roof was 350$ and the axle upgrade was like 500 bucks extra so ya i would say the trailer your looking at is around 6000 new what i do know is that he has carried alot and i mean alot of weight i.e. stone and ceramic tile pallets and pallets and that trailer has carried it like a champ he says that the extra money for a wells cargo is very worth it over the other cheaper brands he claims wells cargo is pretty much the best of the best

yea i would say that trailer is easily 6k new. wells cargo is a good brand so if he wont drop b\in price i wouldnt be afraid to pay him the full price if its in good shape. i have a 2001 wells cargo tw142 7x14 enclosed trailer and it works great. only down side is that it has the barn doors in the rear instead of the fold down ramp but i fixed that problem.
