    Looks pretty good from the pic, have you talked to him to see if he will take less. I personaly always try to talk them down, I believe everyone over prices expecting people to talk them down some.

    yea i mean it looks good from the pics i think it would be nice to have a little project for the winter making racks and getting my logo on the side.the way i thnk of it is that i want an enclosed for a few reasons..1 advertise its free and looks great in front of a house when you are working...2 keeps everything inside clean and safe. my biggest set back is that its 14ft i have a 12 foot open now and i fit my 48wb 32 wb and a 21 i mean i really dont need that much more space unless business goes like crazy in the summer but then i will need a rider and at least a 18 foot trailer. i guess my main thought is that this is so cheap next time i am goin to be able to buy something this style i will be spending 4 grand ish..............i think thats to much to put into a trailer....so now that you read this thoughts..comments...feelings... maybe i am just crazy and think too much????

    I was looking at trailers not too long ago. A brand new Wells Cargo trailer similar to that one was going to be just about $4900 out the door at the place I was looking. Not that I would pay that for it, but that is what they were asking for it.

    You can get an off brand 6x10 for about $2400.

    FWIW Home Depot has Work Sport Trailers. Parent Co. is Pace. http://www.worksporttrailers.com/6x12.php

    The 6 x 12 enclosed with ramp and side door is $2,999 new. The 6 x 10 with swing doors and no ramp is $2,599

    My Home Depot stocks many 6 x 10 but they have one 6 x 12 on order.

    Guys, the low prices you are quoting are for single axle trailers, that is a dual axle. $4900 new is about right for a 7x14.

    Make sure you can drive your equipment on it, some enclosed trailers are to high, and mowers will catch at the top of the ramp.

    Otherwise, on a dealers lot this would run you about $3500 for an 02 in decent shape. The paint may be hard to get off, vynal decals are easier.

    I do not know if it is just your location, but down here trailer prices are much different. Sunday, I am picking up a brand new 2008 model 8.5 X 24 V-Nose Car Hauler for $4,795. Tandem axle, rear ramp door, 10,000 GVWR. However, about the one posted in the thread, I would give $1,500 to $1,800 for it very quickly provided it is in the condition that it appears.
