Good Trailers in New England

I am looking for a 14 or 16 foot trailer in New England, anyone know of any dealers that sell inexpensive trailers. I see all these places in Michigan that are selling 14 and 16 foot for around $1600 Up here a big tex 16' is going for 2400 before tax

Just seems like too much. There are no good used ones either up here

Thanks

The reason that all those trailers are so cheap in the midwest is thats where like 90% of trailers are manufactured. There isnt the freight charge on them like the ones in Maine. Last year I drove to Indiana and bought a 16 footer for $1600.00 out the door, (with options) the same trailer around here in PA sells for around $2500.00
