a 16 x 8 ft trailer. With sides, good floor, $500?
I'd say yeah, probably. I paid $750 new for my 5x8 trailer. I would probably jump on that if I were you. Those probably go for at least $1200 new, probably even more. Not many good things out there for $500.
Does it have axles?
What about the tires?
The hitch / tongue?
I mean, what's wrong with it, why are you asking?
The only thing I can think of is that it's awful wide...
If it needs tires that's $400, still a good deal.
But if the bearings are shot that's likely another $200 in parts + labor.
Double axle I'm assuming?
Yea its in good shape. They have been using it. Tandem axles. Used tires but in decent shape
That's a great deal.
Jump on it.
If it's too big, you can double your money in a few weeks.
That's a lot of useable length.
Maybe look underneath for repair welds just to be sure.
Yea you better jump on that pretty fast. I can buy a factory direct Kaufman trailer 78" x 16' tandem, 1 braking, gate assist for $1695.
Like the last guy said you can double your money, if not a little more.
Very good deal, I picked up a 7x16 with a wheel and tire that needed to be replaced and a gate that needed work for $500 and it was still a good deal. I also had to replace some of the floor boards.
Even if it needs some work, alot of the repairs are probably simple enough that you can do yourself. Add in a coat of paint and it will be looking like new and you'll be real happy you saved over $1000 on it compared to buying new even if you have to get a few things for it.
