I've been hot and heavy for the last week or two looking for a trailer. I've missed out on a couple good deals but will get one soon enough... I saw that one you were talking about @Big Dave and there is another across from hwy 52 that could be had cheap. But it needs more TLC than I am want.

Just be careful with used trailers.  Never know about bearings, axles, hubs, and the age of the tires.  You could save money and end up spending the money saved fixing the used one. 

Rode by Country Boy trailers yesterday, surprised to see them flying the old  GA flag.  Loved it!

definitely possible. but with a minuscule amount of research and a thorough inspection money can be saved.
Most LCOG Builds are like a fat girl in Yoga Pants, just cause it fits doesn't mean it works...

Mike is right.
My trailer was $1k. I drove almost 2 hours to get it. Looked at it in the dark.
I spent $760 on brand new 5200# Dexter brake axles/springs, $350 on new tires/wheels, $85 on lug nuts & wiring. Add 8 hours of labor to if it you're not Pat. Lol.
Still cheaper than the trailers I found at the time.

Yep, at $1k it's worth the risk. The trailers out there that are 8 years old and someone wants $600 less than a new one, I'm buying new. Send me a link to another $1k trailer though!

But it's in Boston. I'd climb under it & make sure there was no rust.

FYI - itís a 2007 and looks like it was stored outside

Iím going out in a limb here....but 9 out of 10 trailers are likely stored outside. 

Brand new trailers are stored outside.
