    Your prices may be different here, but that is not a good price for our market. Here a 6x10 with ramp, brand new should go for $1,200 or less.

    There are a couple of companies here that sell them w/o decking or lights. You have to put a light kit on ($20-30) and whatever decking you want, but a 6x10 like that is about $6-700.

    Ooops.... sorry, I was talking/thinking of open trailers. $1,500 is a very good price for an enclosed trailer that size, assuming it is legit.

    How is the trailer going to help you in this stage of your business? I'm no financial advisor but if you need to take a loan for a $1500 trailer then maybe it's not a good idea right now.

    I'd wait a while. And that trailer looks like its only worth $1100 maybe.

    I wouldn't get the enclosed one for a ranger. My opinion. I'd save the money. Around here you can get a new 6x12 open trailer for about a grand. I think you'll like that. Unless you need to store your equipment in it, but heck if some one want's your stuff they'll take the whole thing anyways
