    5x12 is an odd size... usually they are 6X12 & 5x8....oh well. Good luck with it...

    Depending on how old that trailer is and assuming all features are sound and in good working order....I would say $800-$1K would be a good price so for $675, man, I would be on top of that!

    I just sold my smaller trailer last summer, it was a 5'x10' tilt bed and sold it for $450.00. I buy all of my trailers wholesale from the factory and when I bought this trailer new back in 96 I only paid $500.00 for it. I bought a 6.5'x16' landscape trailer back in 06 for only $910.00 out the door.
