What are scrap steel prices right now? The interest may be more due to the materials than the fact it's a horse trailer.

That makes more sense. I can't imagine many people being able to pull that trailer.

it's crazy eh. I had my trailer listed last year and it sold within 2 days as well. It was listed for fairly large sum of money to but it seems it was fine for all the people who contacted me

Congrats on the sale!

I would have thought that too since it needs some work and isn't in great shape, not to mention the age of it, and there are a lot of scrap dealers in my area.

However, everyone seemed interested in it to use as a horse trailer. The people who purchased it do a lot of horse camping, which is the same use I made of it.

churumbeque - I agree, I tried to make it clear to the purchasers what they would need for pulling. I used a chevy 1 ton dually and pulled it well enough, but I think longer term or heavier use it would have been too hard on the truck. Really need a semi to pull it. The people I bought the trailer from were pulling it with a Ford F 250 - I can't imagine!

My2Geldings - yeah, I posted it in the am, and had a deposit in hand by the next morning. Crazy! But at least it's sold now and I can start looking for something more my size!

Kay - Thanks! He's a good guy.
