    I'm thinking about selling my used trailer and don't have any idea how much to ask for it. It is a converted flatbed about 4 yrs old. Any Advice?


    -16 ft Trailer
    -New floor
    -With storage and racks
    -New wiring
    -Painted 1 year ago

    Thanks

    Since you moved & don't have anywhere to put it, hows about I just come over & pick it up to get it out of your way. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    2 things, trailers don't really depreciate and the price of steel is very high right now. That being said, look around your area and see what can be had and how they're built compared to yours. That's what I would do.

    This is true, very true... Used is still cheaper than new just not that much.
    Like my 6x12x2 I bought 5 years ago for 1500 I could sell today for 900 and in 5 years for that much, providing nothing is wrong with it.

    So I would say the earlier quote of 1100 is about right.
