    What would you pay for this trailer?

    My boss wants to sell this trailer. The frame looks ok and the axles seem alright. Needs new fenders and paint. And lights. And a deck. Haha. 18 or 20 feet long. Fifth wheel not gooseneck.

    TF,
    The forum is having issues with some features and pics no...so we cannot see the trailer in question. We hope it will be rectified soon.

    Can a crack in a frame be repaired? This trailer has a dovetail of sorts and it looks like the frame cracked at the bend.

    Yes it can. But the repair could be a very simple one, to a fairly complicated one depending on the frame and where it's located.

    A quick picture shown to a reputable welding shop should be able to tell you the cost involved.

    *If* you were able to post a picture here, we could answer in better detail. Maybe after they get the site fixed up?

    I would see what a new one like that in your area brings and then cut the price in half, at least, if not more. That one looks kind of rough, hopefully the bones are good. Figure it will cost a couple of hundred for wood. Fenders are a cosmetic thing so not really required unless they are totally gone. You can spend a lot of money on lights if you want or very little. Hard to price unless you are familiar with the local trailer market if you ask me. It also depends on how fast your Boss wants to move the trailer.

    If the tires were good (good tread, under 5 years old- not just holding air) it might be worth $1,000 if someone really, really wanted it. That looks like a very lightweight trailer and I suspect it has a 7k GVW with two 3,500 lb axles. Needs fenders, paint, floor, wiring, and has a cracked frame? I can't imagine too many people want to put that much work into a trailer that can't haul any more than an average bumper pull and fills up the bed with a hitch.

    looks like 6 bolt wheels, so 5200 lb axles..... Looks like a lot of work t me. $1K TOPS IMO.

    You nailed it........As someone who was in the trailer business, you want to avoid "Unusual" set up's as they make selling the trailer even harder in the future. Unusual lengths, light weight axles, deck lengths not proportionate for the size of trailer, beaver tail length taking up too much of the deck space, etc. ........................... The 5th wheel is a BIG DRAW BACK in my opinion, it's expensive to purchase the hitch if you don't have one and they are a bear to take in and out of the truck. It's why everyone is using Goose Neck Hitches on this style trailer. You could convert this to a goose neck, but that's time and money.............................. The trailer has light weight axles, probably 3,500lbs each........On a generous day, I would say it's worth $700 to $850, with it's limitations and the work it needs. If it has been sitting for a long time, you can easily spend $450 for decent tires and the brakes likely need to be gone through. Axle bearings need to be checked. Wiring is probably chewed up by mice so you would either be chasing problems continuously or rewiring the entire trailer................................. Personally, you can buy a new trailer like this for between $3,500 and $4,500. A properly built trailer this size should cost between $5,000 and $7,000 new, but it would have at least two 5,200 pound axles, properly rated tires, LED lights and it would be a goose neck..................................... If you can buy it cheap AND you want a project, then this would give you something to do. If you know how to weld, then you can do much of the work yourself. If you can't that's more money to be spent. Chances are there are a bunch of broken welds on the trailer................................... Yep, I am sticking with my $750 to $850 price range. Bottom line, when it's repaired and put back to proper working condition, it's them maybe a $2,000 to $2,500 trailer. So, that leaves you $1,500 to spend on all repairs, new tires, lights, likely work on the brakes and axles and repairing the broken welds..........................

    Looks like a trailer I've owned for a few years lol. I have beat the snot out of many trailers and once used up I sold them in conditions very similar to what you described. I have always been able to get $600-$1000 out of them depending on just how bad of shape they are in, I never owned a work trailer with a 5th wheel hitch though and not sure how bad that affects the value.
