Default My new trailer!

Okay, so I had some where around 1500-2000 dollars to buy a new trailer, well I looked all over craigslist and found plenty I liked, enclosed and open landscaping trailers, tandem axles and all too. However, no one wanted to sit there and email, text or call me back today or this morning, So I found this old guy who is a dealer for this place, sells them out on his farm, (much closer to where I live unlike the other ones over 2 hours more to drive one way) and went out to look at them. Well, I bought one while I was there since it was Brand new with a year warrenty and all the jazz included. I paid 1075.00 with my taxes/tag included. I think I got a pretty good deal for a 5.5 x 10ft trailer. I'm not to happy that it wasn't tandem axle but I didn't want to wait for them to order/ship it.

Sounds like a fair price depending on the specs.

Gives me hope that I can replace my 5x8 for around that price.
I'm going to get a 10, or 12' long trailer next.

The wood floor is also something I want next time around. It gives you a better way to lash things down I think.

The pressure treated trailer deck is good. It stands up well. Most landscape trailers in my neck of the woods have pt decks.

Great looking trailer and super deal. I wouldn't worry about not having tandem. Mowers and all the other equipment in a ten foot trailer. Single axle usually does the trick. Congrats
