    I'm looking at a trailer, picture is attatched

    It's a 6'-4" X 16' PREMIER TRAILER W/ 2' EXPANDED METAL SIDES & GATES. 7000gvwr.

    New/Used: Used
    Year: 2004
    Make: PREMIER
    Model: LT162
    Type: UTILITY
    Purchase Status: For Sale
    Selling Price: 1650

    Is this reasonable, I'm thinking about offering a bit less. I plan on going to look at it tomorrow.

    What do you all think?

    Based upon what I've seen I think that is about 400 to 500 to high. It all depends on how bad you need. But when I price trailers the overall condition and age play big factors.

    Another thing to keep in mind that a lot of people don't is what part of the country it's in. Trailer prices vary A LOT by region. In New England that's a decent price, don't know about your area.

    That is similar to my trailer and I payed around $2400 for mine brand new. I would think 1300-1400 is reasonable if it is in good shape.

    That's a decent price, steel prices are going through the roof! See if you can get them to shoot some paint on it for that price, lol

    The paint is no big deal. I used to do it for a living on cars.
