    Is it a name brand? How old is it? Light weight or heavy duty? How much is it new? Is it beat up? Have you looked locally to see what they are selling for?

    Is there a forum for buying and selling here?
  3. why are you selling it? possibly it could serve as a backup. or for moving other equipment or supplies?

    Well, around here I can get a new 6x12, wood decking, A frame tongue (not the single post) with jack, single gate, any color for 650.00. I don't know your area but would just hang on to it instead of selling. You may not get enough to justify getting rid of it.

    Around here the same thing described above would run anywhere from about $850 to $1500.
    Crazygator, that's a great price! I wouldn't be able to find a low-end 5'x10' for $650!
    I paid $750 for my 5'x10' and that was the lowest price around my way.

    CLC, if you can swing it, put some equipment on that trailer and a cheap pick up infront of it and hire a new employee to run solo for ya! :p

    Around here a 5x10 will go (new) for around $1000, and my 6x12 was $1100. 5x10 is the most popular size. The dealer gave me more than half the price of my new one in trade.

    I recently sold a 12' tandem axle for $700 to a lawnsite member.

    Yup crazygator!

    Got my 6x12 up in Gallatin for $649...tax included. :)

    Single axle, single mesh ramp, wood plank deck, jack, "A' style tongue, and lights.

    Electric brakes and breakaway box was offered for an additional $150.

    Most of them come with used tires though....I've already replaced those 'May-Pops' with Dunlops....$15 apiece-USED- but with plenty of tread.

    Maybe Nashville really is a cheap place to live afterall. :D
