Used trailer

I wanted you imput on the following used trailer.
It's a 1985 Horse trailer with dual axles and enclosed. There is a gate in the back and a side door. It's 7' x 14' with electric brakes, glavanized steel, pintle hitch and in good condition. He wanted $1200 neogitiable.
He said to make an offer, any thoughts.
I am getting pictures of it tomorrow, and i will upload them.

Thanks
Chris

A nearly 20 year old horse trailer for $1200? I'd be walking the other way.

If the price is neogitiable then offer him $500.00

What would you feel is a good price?
I would be the third owner of the trailer.
It's been used for landscaping mainly.

I wouldn't want a horse trailer for landscaping.... not very professional in my opinion. You could buy a brand new open utility trailer for that price.

Thanks for all your feedback.
I recieved the pics of the trailer yesterday and they aren't even worth posting on the site.
He said he has a standing offer at $900. I told him fine, i don't want a 20 yrs old trailer for $1000 when i could buy a new enclosed landscaping trailer for 4-5K.
