    ive got the opportunity to buy a 7x14 tandem axel enclosed trailer all aluminum with a bunch of extras and ramp doors. retail they go for around 6500-7300

    a friend of mine bought it and just wants his money out from it (5grand)
    It has seen probably 2 trips home from the dealer distance wise.

    so does this look like a deal of a lifetime or should i go to a 6x12 with out all the goodies for less. (3g)

    it has a 300 dollar bike rack i could get rid of im sure as well.

    the use of the trailer im not worried about....haha it saw the trip home from a buddy's...quads loaded in. then a trip to another friends storage after it was sold to him.

    this sale is only for me...not public...

    That sure is a nice trailer but 5k is too steep IMO. Again, helluva trailer with those wheels and smooth sides but too much for a 14'. Id pass.

    for how big i plan on getting this is about the perfect size for me.
    ive got half paid for already and my dad thinks its a good idea for me to build credit. so i will pay off the rest over time. (Rather than just buying with cash your whole life he believes it will help when you actually need to buy a house or get some type of a loan).

    And again man....in a business like this...image is everything...i hate looking like every other guy with an open trailer
