So I decided my trailer is to big for me to handle on my own, since my fiance is now out of the picture. I posted it to sell on CL today and got 30 response mails within an hour...that's probably a sign I had it posted too cheaply, right? I posted it for what I paid for it, and really have put very little money into it since I got it. It needs a lot of fixing up, and I wanted to sell it quick, but am I shooting myself in the foot?
It's an older trailer, 1985 Lazy N. 4 horse slant with padded, removable dividers. Small mid tack, does not exit into either horse section or LQ. 26 feet of living quarters, including sleeping for four (queen in the gooseneck, sofabed, and a dinette that turns into a bunk). AC/furnace unit in the LQ, full electrical with kitchenette including double sink, 3 burner range top and compact oven. Small full bath unit with shower toilet and sink/vanity. Absolutely TONS of storage space in this trailer. Since purchase I got new swing doors made for the rear of the trailer because the ramp was rusted and not safe, so had it removed and lights rewired. I have a buddy who is a welder so got that done for about 250 bucks. The rear doors have not been primed and painted yet. The trailer has a good solid floor throughout, newer tires including full spare, brakes in good shape. New battery, camper fridge and microwave inside. Was NOT winterized, but did drain the tanks and lines. Hayrack on top.
The trailer does have a lot of surface rust that could be easily taken care of. It needs a paint job over all. It DOES have a side load ramp as well which is much more rust-damaged and not usable IMO, I never used it, and it would need replaced. There is some more minor rust damage around the tack room door. It has a clear and current title.
I posted the trailer for $3,800.00, due to the work it needs, and this is what I paid for the trailer just last year. Like I said I got more than two dozen responses in an hours time. Should I be asking more for it? It seems like a fair price for the shape it's in, but CL makes me uncomfortable and I'm paranoid now. Any thoughts?
