What would you pay for this trailer?

Due to some extenuating circumstances (someone stole hubby's identity and filed taxes under his social) I may need to part with my trailer.

What would you pay for a trailer like this? I'm in North Carolina if that helps.

Trailer -2 horse bumper pull, with padded sides and divider. Full dressing room with room for 2 saddles, 4 hanging hooks, and a padded seat with storage underneath. Has lights inside derssing room, horse portion, and behind trailer for nighttime loading/unloading. Only weighs 1300 lbs. Can easily be pulled by mid-weight SUV/truck. Needs tires.

What do you think it's worth? I have a clean title. I dont remember the brand, though i could get that info when i get home from work.

Since tires could run $400+ I would think that ~$2500 would be a fair number.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Thank you. I was certainly hoping to fetch more. I love my trailer and would hate to part with it, but were counting on his tax return for some wedding finances. If I could only get $2500 I'd probably part with one of our ATV's first. I have seen rust buckets going from $1200-$2700 around here. But I cant find anything similar to mine to compare it to.

Have you looked at prices for compareable trailers at LBs? They do a lot of business in NC. LBs Trailer

I would probably put it at 3k and be negotiable; you'll probably get $2500 for it.

I paid $3000 for a 3 horse slant load with dressing area in really good condition. Two horse trailers don't usually go for a whole lot from what I have seen. Also, just because people are asking a lot for their rust bucket trailers, it doesn't mean that people are buying them or paying that much for them. I think $2500 would be a very reasonable offer.
