    I just bought a new 200 gal sprayer that was mounted on a 12 foot trailer with a brand new floor. The trailer is about 10 years old, and the sprayer is brand new. I think that I have decided to take the sprayer off the trailer and onto my truck to save on storage.

    Any ideas about how much the trailer is worth?

    Any comments as to whether i should just keep it on the sprayer.

    Well if you don't mind lugging a big sprayer in your truck 365 days a year that's fine... Personally I like the idea of a trailer mounted sprayer for those of us who don't spray that much. If you are spraying virtually every day in the season then having it in the truck makes more sence. Unless this is already a dedicated lawn spray truck and not a daily driver...

    I would strongly encourage you to keep it on a trailer unless you are making this truck a dedicated spray rig.

    Ideally, I think you will want to keep it on the trailer. If you never use the bed of your truck, then keep it in there.
