You may find it's cheaper and safer to buy a new trailer. I bought a new 20ft 14k implement trailer for $3150 last year. It wasn't a gooseneck. It was power coated. I think it's better to buy a new trailer instead of a used trailer that needs tires, breaks, new battery, wheel bearings and fix the wiring problems.

Chances are your trailer may not have a break away switch and battery, which is required to be legal.

Which can be bought locally "here" for around 60 bucks.

You could rewire the entire thing, add brakes to both axles, and get new tires for cheaper than a new trailer, and you know the trailer was built right and how you want it.

Perhaps I read the post wrong. $800 for axles. My spare tire and rim to fit 7k axles ran $225 each, that's $900 for wheels. He will need a battery and break away switch. How good is his old deck? Does it need replaced? Did a certified welder put his trailer together? Does the old trailer track straight?

I sold my 15 year old 7k 16 ft utility trailer for $1200 and put another $2000 for a new one with no regrets.

The way I see it, he is looking at half the price, or more, of a new trailer to fix up the old trailer, not $60.

I would go with a new trailer if he wants to be on the road. Stay with the old trailer if he wants to use around the farm.

Never implied 60 to get it in tip top shape. In your first post you made it sound like not having a break away box was a big deal. Was at Napa this afternoon and he has one on the shelf with everything including the battery, battery box, switch, and the wiring needed for 49.99.
I myself am a thrifty person and would rather spend 1/2 the price of a new trailer and fix up my old trailer and use that other 1/2 on something else or put it into my savings account. Somebody once told me "you don't get rich by spending all your money".
