    Ok, I tell you what I did and how much it cost in 2002, likely the prices haven't changed much. I bought mine new because it came with a warranty and it was one less thing to worry about PLUS I got the same guys to install the class-III trailer hitch (if you need this, you want them to install it, drilling through 3/8 thick frame steel is NO fun) so the trailer was $1,500 but it has solid 2 foot sides. Now I honestly do not remember if it was 1200 + 300 for the hitch / wiring and ttlr or if it was 1500 + 300, but I want to say I was only out 1500 after it was all said and done...? Maybe it was 1400 + 300, anyway I don't remember exactly lol but somewhere in that price range (the 300 ttlir = title license registration {and the hitch and the wiring and labor}).
    So, think 1200 to 1500 (+300), brand spanking new w/ at least 1 year warranty.

    If you get one used, make SURE it is in good to excellent shape, the boards will have to be replaced in time and there are other things that, well, they last a long time but they don't last forever heh... I would say if you can find this same trailer used for under 900 then you likely got a good deal, they don't come down in price like cars, that's for sure.

    Mine's a Carson brand, 6 x 12 x 2 (for the sides).

    Here's a pic (it happens to be loaded with leaves and the tail lights on the gate itself are aftermarket but):

    It is a 3 hour drive but I got a brand new 6'6" X 16 trailer with wood floor for 1200.00 straight from the factory... Might want to consider looking for a trailer mfg in your area, but if you need one let me know and I will get you in touch with them. Great quality trailer....

    You will be looking at around 1500 for a good new one from a dealer. Maybe 1100 or 1200 for a Lowe's type one but the difference in quality makes it no bargain. If you're getting a used one, check the floor boards, make sure the wiring is in good shape and snug up on the frame, and also make sure the tires are in good shape and won't have to be replaced soon. If you buy a used trailer, pull the bearings out, clean them and repack them with grease before you start using it too heavily.

    Wright Equipment in Bluff City, TN. has good prices on trailers and is probably only about an hour from you. We gave $1750.00 tax and all for an 8 x 16 ft. tandem axle with side gate and brakes. Also, good people to deal with. If I were guessing you might pay $900.00-$1000.00 for a 6 x 12 single axle. These are new trailers.
