    I would think it's not an amazing price, but trailer prices seem to vary regionally. I bought a new H&H 8x18 enclosed for a tad under $4500 a few months ago. If it's in GREAT shape and you like it, I don't think it sounds crazy expensive or anything.

    I don't know anything about Homesteader brand trailers. Have you done any research on them?

    I bought a brand new trailer about like that, same size, for $4,100.00 last year. So, no, that is not a great price at all.

    I found a Hurricane cargo factory online. Talked to them and I can get a great deal by buying directly from them. Have yall heard the name brand Hurricane before and if yes what do you think of them. They come with a 5 yr warranty.

    Just wondering what size axles? I have a 20' with the 3500lb and I will never do that again. I will get at least 5200lbs axles next time.

    I did not think they made 5500lb axles. I might be wrong, but it probably has 5200lb. axles. The standard trailer axles are either 3500lb, 5200lb., or 7000lb. I suppose there are others, but those 3 are generally considered the standard sizes.
