    How much do trailers depreciate? There isn't much to a trailer, but it seems used trailers don't keep their value.

    What would a trailer like this go for?
    18' x 7-1/2' floor space
    Red faded paint
    10" rails around sides
    Mesh rear ramp
    Mesh side ramp
    Solid diamond plate steel box in front(good storage)
    New shackles on springs
    Replaced all four springs and upgraded to six leaf
    Double axle
    Brakes on both axles
    Tires have less than half of tread
    All lights work
    Bearings packed recently

    I would not have a problem paying $1000 to $1200 for that trailer if the deck is in good condition also.

    Maybe selling it.

    Just have that little itch to get something new this year.
    Hmmm... trailer, Hustler, exmark, vac.
    Hard to say at this point.

    Well, I just went to a LC going out of business auction and the the trialers went for only 200 less then new. One of them went for 75 over new price!!!!! That is what you get when you get farmers caught up in the auction instead of driving 10 miles down the road to the dealership!!!!!!
    About yours, if it goes up for sale, let me know, I would give about 1400 for it!

    I dont think trailers depreciate that much, as long as they are kept in good shape. How much you asking for that trailer? I think you could get $1500 for it.
