The laws might be different where you are, but around here a used vehicle, much less a trailer, when sold privately comes without any warranties whatsoever. Once the ownership is signed over to the new person and they take possession it's their baby, regardless what they may find afterwards, intentionally concealed or otherwise. It's the buyers responsibility to actually do their homework before agreeing to purchase, not the seller's responsibility to do so.
There are failing to uphold their side of the agreement and trying to weasel out on what they think is a technicality that doesn't actually exist, so I suggest you stick to your guns and get your money.
This is a prime example to everybody of why only to deal with cash, certified cheques, or a bank draft in these sorts of situations – I would never ever accept a personal cheque for anything from someone I don't personally know as a friend.
