Got a new trailer trade offer! Pics

I got some new tires for my truck. They're worth $900-$1200 but I don't have the rims anymore so I posted them for trade on Craigslist. I got tons of offers, some cash offers etc but this trailer was the one I'm most interested in. I'd obviously have to make sides for it though. How much do you guys think this trailer is worth? I have a $600 cash offer for the tires.

I looked at the tires and i mirror the quote. I recently bought a 6X10 dump double axle with brakes (it is law if your trailer has double axle to have to have brakes) 7000LBs The single axle was 5000 payload. for the extra money it was worth it for RESALE and peace of mind. I FULLY UNDERSTAND the money end of things because I bought mine CASH.NEW. Save your money and get something that is overrated LBS wise and will last till the cows come home. I just don't see this being a good trailer for trashouts, perhaps land scaping but the tires are small diameter and NO bearing buddies are on it. You'll burn up the bearings then be SOL for the day stuck on the side of the road. PLUS if you wait get something that is going to suit you better you can make dump runs while the others are cleaning and doing yard work. Wait watch and make notes of pricing and cycles. I doubt anyone is going to buy a dump trailer for their wife for christmas. So that is when yopu go in and buy it. If they wont budge on price keep working on them they will one day then you are IN. Also have them throw in a spare tire and other goodies that you want. It gives you more of a margin to work them over on.

That thing was meant to carry a couple of sleds or quads on the weekend. That does not equal much in trash/debris weight on a weekly basis. I agree, bearings, springs would be junk in no time. Take the cash and build up a stash and buy something more appropriate. Be patient you'll find a good one. Winter is coming and there will guys selling out as it slows down

Key point............."on the weekend".


That trailer was never designed for daily use as Rich said.

Alright, you guys convinced me. I got another offer but it is also single axle. Should I only be looking for dual? It's a 6x10, 1.5ft sides maybe 2ft with mesh gate.

Yes dual axle. They're more sturdy and easier to control in all conditions.

Get a tandem axle for sure. Getting a blowout on a single axle with a full trailer is no fun at all... Ask me how I know

Matt will be along shortly to highly defend the use of single axles.


I certainly like my tandem axle trailers as they tend to ride much smoother.
