Anyone have a trailer for sale? Mine is in need of many repairs and I figured it would be best just to buy a decent used one. Anyone have any leads for me?

For what a new 13' trailer costs, buy new or rebuild yours. No reason to buy another man's junk and only save a couple hundred over a new one. At least you know what is wrong with your junk and what to fix ;) Now if she is shot that is another story but for under $600 or so you can get a new trailer.

I agree - you will waste so much time trying to find a decent used trailer then you will have to do new bearings, probably races too, new tires (probably will have to upgrade from 8inch to 12 inch), new lights and rewire unless you are real lucky.

Nick is right - brand new is around $600 bucks, galvanized a bit more all new and updates.

I recommend do not get one too stout - too hard on boat.

Good luck.

Oh, I probably spent 600 hours trying to find a $300 used trailer and then I had to do all above. Dumb - but my wife said for me it's the journey not the destination.

Yea...I already considered a new galvanized trailer. (quoted $700). I figured there may be a decent used one kicking around for around $300. Maybe i'll just fix her up. It needs....
