    That trailer will weigh around 5,500-6,000 pounds, a large amount for a 3/4 ton rig and a 9,500 pound machine. For that much weight on a pickup, you want a gooseneck setup, they handle the weight a lot better. If the trailer is in good shape, I don't see any reason you can't get $6-8Kfor it. They hold their value pretty well.

    If its new, go find a trailer you like at another dealership, pull the trailer straight from where you bought the CAT and trade the Trail King in on whatever you want, I would recommend a gooseneck too for that heavy of a machine..

    They are really good trailers, but a GN setup is better IMO.
