Possibly selling my trailer

AjskierAjskier Posts: 107 Baller
Good Afternoon All,

I am possibly replacing my trailer that is under my MY 2001 Natutique. The current trailer is an Eagle. Overall the trailer is in decent shape, bearings, brakes, and bunk carpet replaced within the last year. Anyone have an idea of what I might be able to get if I decide to sell that trailer? Just trying to get an idea of what I might be able to get for it before I list it.

Thank you,
AJ

    I’d say around $2,000

    Based on his previous post “ My current trailer is an eagle that is really starting to show it's age with some bad rust. I don't need anything over the top”

    More. Try to order a new trailer, then get that trailer to you if you are a long distance away. Not only is it expensive but it's a total pain. I'd guess $6K minimum for a brand new trailer to your door. As such a good used trailer should be more than $2K.

    And why are we replacing a trailer that is in “decent” overall shape with a $6k new trailer……. Let the buyer beware

    Thank you all for your responses.

    @JayG80, thank you that is what I was thinking. The rust is mainly located on the fenders, the running gear isn't showing much rust.

    @jhughes fortunately I do not have to travel far for the new one. I am going with a loadmaster trailer, which is custom trailer manufacture that is about 20 minutes from my house.

    @Hockdog, two reasons. First is a space issue in my garage. Current trailer does not have a swing away tongue, which I need for the space in my garage. Next I have started trailering the boat to our summer place which is a bit of a hike from the house and it makes me nervous trailering the boat that far on a 21 year old trailer even though the running gear appears to be in decent shape, never know what is lurking where you can't see. I have always kept it serviced, but after a incident that I had with my truck and the boat last year, the hitch that was bolted to the frame of the truck rusted through at the welds and it snapped off while trailering the boat back to storage. So the unknow things you can't see, internal rust, has made me a bit uneasy with the trailering the boat on a old trailer long distances.

    Trailers are more like 8K right now. Choose wisely
