    so we're supposed to look at one picture and spit out a dollar amount?

    Without knowing if the brakes work. without knowing if the wheel bearings are any good. Without knowing in the thing has any cracked welds. Or cracked steel.

    With all that said, based on what I know - it's worth scrap metal value. Last I knew scrap steel was 11 cents per pound.

    reason i said ball park. It is not my trailer, a gentlemen is looking to trade it for a 4x4 quad I have and I'm not too familiar with used dump trailer pricing reason being why I asked for a realistic ball park figure to see if we were in the same price range. He's asking 5k
