    It's a 2004 with 15" wheels, new LED lighting and wire. 24" mesh sides. Good shape. I have someone offering $800. Good deal?

    It really depends on what the market will bear in your area. I just sold a 5 X 10 open trailer with 2X3 tube top rail and 4ft rear gate, 15" tires + spare for $700. So I would say it's probably a good deal. But in comparison, I was looking for a 6X12 or 7X13 enclosed trailer. Around the New Orleans area, most of the enclosed trailers in that size are going for $2k and up. I found one in Pensacola for $1750 that was in great shape! I seriously thought about bringing it back and selling it but it has really fit my business very well. Anyway, it really just depends on the market. Just my 2 cents! :)
