    It is a 2006 24ft 22.5k pound gooseneck trailer.
    tire are about 35%.
    I can pick it up for $5000.

    Good deal?

    I'd say that is a decent deal, not the best deal in the world but a good price.

    That is a good deal for around our area. The tires are probably about 200 each, so you might be able to talk him down a little bit.

    Any more with steel prices were they are thats not a bad price. Hold out for new tires or $4,000.

    That is an ok deal but i wouldn't get run out and buy it unless you need it and have a job coming up that will help pay for it. What conditon are the brakes in and how much has it been used. Putting a set of tires on that beast will set you back at least $1000 to $1500. I have seen those new for around $6500 so i would try and shop around or haggle a little on that maybe $4500.

    I've priced it through the dealer, it's $7500+tax new.

    I offered $4650...we'll see what happens.

    He was originally asking $5800, and I had him down to $5k.
