    Im looking at buying an ALUMA enclosed trailer. Its 4 years old but has not been used the last 2 years. Its been sitting in a pole barn so it was protected. the trailer is 16.5 feet long and 6'9'' wall to all and a 6'4'' door opening and 6 feet high. The only bad thing is that it is DOORS and not ramps. I have experience driving down ramps because thats what i do now, so that wont be a big deal. It has a front door, electic brakes, all aluminum.

    if I can get it for $4000 would it be a good deal? or what is the max that you would pay....

    Also is aluma a good brand?


    Thanks alot.

    Nick

    I just purchased one 5100 tax title included which will take four weeks to get built but it is a Haulin all aluminum once piece, dual brakes 7x16 rear ramp 75'' wide with a 48'' door brand new top notch goodies if that gives you an idea. To have the ramp option added for me it cost me an additional $300 so you could always maybe pick one up but by then your close to my new price. Sometime it all depends on the location because I heard just in Canada my trailer would go for over 7000 new from the salesman. He has alot of guys coming over the border and taking them back up north to sell them due to the price difference. Good Luck.
