What is this worth?

Featherlite all aluminum BP trailer, 1991 model. 2 horse straight load, dressing room, WB size 7'6" tall. No rust, wood floors in good shape, breaks working. She's asking $6500. Is that reasonable?

I don't do dressing rooms and such, but that seems kinda high to *me* for a 91?

Here's some pics. Supposedly it's in really good shape. Sure looks nice. It's my first trailer, so I am a little ignorant about value when it comes to steel aluminum, etc.

That trailer looks like it doesnt have much milage on it at all Puck! Minus the bit of dirt and handprints...could almost be brand new. The only thing about this trailer that I personally wouldnt like is the front. It looks like it would be a windcatcher, making it more of a gas guzzler on your vehicle, but that's my personal opinion, as I don't know that much about trailers.

It might be slightly more expensive now, but it might be better in the long run cause it looks barely used.

If there asking 6500 offer them 4500 up to 5500and see what they say. It looks to be well taken care of Aluminun trailers hold thier value.....Is it all aluminun or does it have a steel frame over aluminum? You can always contact Sundowner or a dealer and ask them ...

When I bought my 4Star I called 4Star and asked them what my trailer would list at now... like a book price. They were very helpful and I ended up buying a trailer!
