How much do you think this trailer is worth?

Well the golf course neighborhood that I live in is considering selling their tandam axle Hudson trailer. This trailer is in pretty rough shape. Has sat for about 10 years and needs a lot of work. I am assuming it is going to need new deck boards, paint, wheel bearing, breaks, wires, and new lights. Attatched is a picture of how it looks. Opinions, suggestions are welcome.

You could easily drop $1500 to fix her up...if its just some shoes,tires, bearings and wiring $600 which is my guess on what you would end up doing to get her useable. I would say for $500 you cant go wrong and a $1000 you might be in too deep but could still come out ok possibly.

I havent really inspected this trailer nor tried to move it. Not 100 percent sure what kind of work it all needs. I was going to offer them 300 tops for it. Put some money into it and maybe try to sell it or just use it for whatever. I'm not even sure how much weight this trailer can actually hold.

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't go more than a few hundred for it... sitting around that long can be harder on a trailer than driving it, for sure.

that trailer is worth a lot more money that 500 bucks, around here that trailer would go for at least 1800 as is.

I'd start with $100 bucks over the value of the trailer at the junkyard. Scrap is going at around $175 a ton here, so I'd say maybe $425. If it didn't look like it was that bad in person, I might go up to $700. With the work you outlined you could likely sell it for close to 3 grand (I'm assuming its tagged for 14,000 #s)
