    I wanted you imput on the following used trailer.
    It's a 1985 Horse trailer with dual axles and enclosed. There is a gate in the back and a side door. It's 7' x 14' with electric brakes, glavanized steel, pintle hitch and in good condition. He wanted $1200 neogitiable.
    He said to make an offer, any thoughts.
    I am getting pictures of it tomorrow, and i will upload them.

    A nearly 20 year old horse trailer for $1200? I'd be walking the other way.

    If the price is neogitiable then offer him $500.00

    What would you feel is a good price?
    I would be the third owner of the trailer.
    It's been used for landscaping mainly.

    I'd go there with 800 cash and say 800 cash now or im leaving. Just my 2 cents.

    I wouldn't want a horse trailer for landscaping.... not very professional in my opinion. You could buy a brand new open utility trailer for that price.

    Most of the time.. You put horses in a horse trailer, but thats just my experience..

    Thanks for all your feedback.
    I recieved the pics of the trailer yesterday and they aren't even worth posting on the site.
    He said he has a standing offer at $900. I told him fine, i don't want a 20 yrs old trailer for $1000 when i could buy a new enclosed landscaping trailer for 4-5K.
