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. |
