Whats it worth?

I have a chance to buy a tandem axil 16 foot trailer. It has surge brakes and is in good condition. I think a 7 or 8 thousand pounds. It would haul a N with no problems. I borrowed it once to haul my #1 cub. The guy said he would give me a good price, but I have no idea what it is worth. Anybody have any ideas what it is worth?

Factory unit with proper axles and pro welding about 1500 - 3000.

Homemade with rewelded and lengthened K car axle and not so certain welding but with surge brakes working. 500 - 1800.

But really depends on safety features and how good the drive system is. Bearings not overheated (black), surge brake not leaking, hitch not loose and solid, proper GVW coupler, lights and wiring not loose (minor problem) and all that.

I believe 1200 to 1500 would be an excellent deal for a trailer like that. With surge brakes and 7000 lb. axles you would be looking at 1000.00 more new.

I have seen them sold on the Net for around 1,500.00 new in the southern states. I paid 2,800.00 new for my 18 ft rated at 8,000 lbs and electric brakes on each axle with Battry back/up incase of break/away from hitch. Mark H.

Depends also if it's a gooseneck or tag-a-long. (bumper hitch) If it's in real good shape I'd put it a little higher. $800 - 1500.

Depends on cond. Whether it has 3500 lb. or 5000 lb. axles. (each axle). 3500 lb. will have 5 lug wheels, 5000 lb. will have 6 lug and maybe sometimes 8 lug. I would say some where between $5oo and $1000. Good Luck!

i was gonna guess at around a thousand - you sure can't build much of a trailer for that nowdays - unless you strip a trailer house :)
