    I bought this trailer last March and added the side boards, the locking metal box on the front, sandblasted and painted the rims, and re wired it in conduit. I bought it originally somewhat cheap, but now I think it is worth a lot more. It is a 7' x 12' with a 3500# axle. I'm thinking probably around $1400.00, what do you think?

    Mine is just like that, minus the box. I paid $750 for it new this spring.
    I can also get a 7x16 (new) dual axle with breaks for $1400.
    I would pay between $750-950 for that one.

    I agree......around $750 for it. It is used after all and used trailers never bring new prices................ payup

    I agree most you should be able to get is 800.00 . I wouldnt buy any used trailer tho as you have no idea whats its been thru . I bought a new 14 ft single with back gate very very heavy frame made by tow pro for 1400 bucks so you can see why i would not pay your price sorry

    Its a nice looking trailer and you have your time and money invested in it but it is still a used trailer and thats how a lot of people will look at it.But ask what you want and bargain from there if the right buyer comes along.Good luck and keep us posted.
