    First, is it a tandem axel?
    Second, what are the axels rated at?
    Third, does the trailer have breaks?
    Fourth, what kind of floor does it have (wood or metal)?
    Fifth, what guage of steel did they use?

    There's a lot of variables which could dictate whether or not it's a good buy. Just make sure you know what to look for before buying.

    Just from what you stated I would say it's a good buy. I paid $1700 for mine and the only difference is that I had a 48" side gate added.
