    I am not trying to be funny...but if you can't find a good price on a trailer... then maybe there is a shortage of supply, and an excess of demand. Maybe you are in the wrong business.Just being observative since it seems everyone with a truck and a mower is cutting these days....

    i know what your saying.....i read about people on this site getting trailers dirt cheap. most seem to be located in the midwest, and i dont know if its cause a lot of trailer manufacturers are out that way, or they just price lower, but it seems the northeast is priced way higher for trailers. you should take a ride to limberger trailers in Ellington CT. they are a huge trailer dealer, and they have a huge selection.

    Yes!! I agree with you. My jaw drops sometimes at the prices you guys in other parts of the US are paying. 16' two axle trailer for $1500 or even less? Try $3100 or more around CT!!

    It's true that they cost alot here and the shipping is a big part of it beacuse most are made out west or down south.

    just ordered a new one. 6 x12 tandem with 4' sides, toolbox, trimmer rack, gas can racks on each side and electric brakes. total price $1650.00.

    Have to drive seven hours to pick it up, but it cost me about 900 less than anywhere around Houston.

    :confused: :confused: How can they legally sell a trailer that big without brakes? I thought DOT required brakes on trailers heavier than 1500 lbs.
