Is it just me? (trailer related)
 
Does anyone out there think horse trailers are WAYYY over-priced? All of them, even the used ones without living quarters? In comparison, you can get an awesome travel trailer for about half the price. I had no idea they went for so much. Just curious to get your opinions and maybe a suggestion for a very simple, decent priced horse trailer for a draft.

I agree! The used trailers are more than I paid for my car... and they don't even have an engine of their own! It is very fustrating.

I don't think so. If taken care of, they retain their value.

I think they are way over priced!!! An older used one(that I have been looking at) that looks all raggedy is still going for 10-12k!!!! Ridiculous!

i looked for 5 months (no joke) to find the trailer I wanted. I had a budget of <$5000 and I wanted something with a 7'6" ceiling, a ramp, and it had to be airy. I finally found it - they are out there. The bottom line is once you see it, you had better be ready to put a deposit on it! The few gems that pass through are quick to go!

I searched for several years online, at auction sales etc. It seemed the used ones were going for almost as much as a new one. I've never priced a travel trailer, are they cheaper than a horse trailer?
I know I ended up buying a new side by side 2 horse and then traded it in on a used bigger one. I got almost as much as I paid new in trade for my old one. :shock: I think the price of most thing is that way though :evil: Thats a whole other rant though...

yeah...they are...

Yes, when you can buy a car for the same price as a trailer - that's just ridiculous.
