Yes but that would be reflected in his asking price if he even wanted to sell it. Another advantage to new is you can have it set up the way you want it and won't have to compromise. You can drive around looking at used trailers till the cows come home or you can go to a dealer or two and pick out what you really want. Then all you have to do is pay the man, hook up and drive away. On the way home you can pick up your new ( I hope) mower.
