I would be very leary of any trailer by that description retailing for any less than $4900- $5200 today. Brakes , tires , lighting , deck boards and guage of steel are all ways they scrimp to get a cheap advertising price. Usually they don't have one in stock because they know no one will want that exact one with all the "base" lack of quallity. Gets you in the showroom though.A trailer is no place to go cheap.

I'd rather not spend $6000.00 on a new PJ if I can find a good "used" trailer for $1500.00 less (although there is a PJ dealer about 15 miles from me).

Some of the "used" trailers I've been looking at on the internet are,....

1997 Road Boss,... 24',... no dove tail,... $3895.00

2002 Bales,... 24',... no dove tail,... $3500.00

2006 Big Tex,... 20' + 5', with flip over ramps,... $4500.00

1982 Keifer,... 20' + 5',... all steel, with flip over ramps,... $2500.00

,.... now ALL of these trailers are advertised as being in GREAT shape BUT we know how that goes sometimes. LOL

All of these trailers are also at least 300-500 miles from me.

I really like the Big Tex and it looks "NEW" and is only supposed to have about 1000 miles on it, but by the time I make a 1000 mile round-trip to get it, I think I'd have almost the price of a NEW PJ tied up in a trailer that is already 7 years old.

I'm not familiar with the brand names of the other trailers I listed, and some of them are a bit closer to home.

In Summer 2010, started seriously looking for a trailer. After the numerous used trailers I found and what it was going to take to get road-worthy I finally bought a new one in October 2010. I have a 20' PJ Flat "car hauler" that has 5,200 lb axles brake, and 2 5/16 in ball. Paid just under $2,600 for it. After looking at some of the used ones and the price they wanted for it, I still think I got a decent deal.
