Prices seem high for what they are. Around here, you can get a new 14k 24' gooseneck trailer starting at $4600. Of course when you add led lights, spring assisted ramps, etc. the price goes up. Last year I bought a 20' with 4' dovetail, new floor, and good brakes and tires for $2K. Of course I had to rewire it and get the lighting requirements and break away kit up to DOT standards.
If you are wanting to pull it with a 3/4 or 1 ton truck, transporting the 10 ton steamer is out of the question. Your truck is not rated for that kind of load (somewhere around 18,500lbs total) even though the trailer might be. That will be instant ticket. Like others have said, the 20-25k trailers will put you over the 26K farm tag number (around here at least). Being farm tagged, we don't have to have cdl for the potential to be over 26k, but we do have to have a medical card and dot number. That is why most people stick with the 14k trailers.
I prefer the 20k trailers because they ride better, but I don't want to deal with all the hassles that go with it.
Each state is different, so check with your local DOT before making a final decision.
