earlier in the year i bought a used bri-mar 6x10x16" tandem dump trailer rated 10kGVWR for $1100 (and $700 in mowing that was owed to me)

I watch estate auctions, if you can find one that is not getting alot of attention you can get some great deals ..... Craigslist is good at times also but there is alot of junk there also....

craigslist in my area consists of people selling at VERY high prices. For example, a guy buys a 32" walk behind for $10,000. He realizes he got ripped off, so he posts it on craigslist, with 400 hours on it, for $9,700. Once in a while I find a decent deal, but after emailing the owner, the cost to repair is too much.

Reminds me, when I was looking to buy a trailer I was looking for used ones. There was a 5x10 on craiglist that was the EXACT same as the one I was getting ready to buy new, even to add, he bought it from the same place I was buying mine. He wanted 1800 for it used....I bought mine for 1000 from the same exact place. Obviously was trying to rip someone off.
