Does anyone know of any dealers that are not " sky high " that are in Va. Nc. Md. Sc. ? They want 3 grand for them here whether they are utility trailer or just a car hauler with a dove tail. I feel that's too high so looking for alternative places.

It all depends on the build quality.. My trailer was $4000 for a 20ft'er 7 years ago and was built like crapola.. a fellow I know paid much more for a shorter trailer, but 6 years later it still looks like new, unlike mine

I just need the trailer to last a month then after that it will be retired from service and used as a back up trailer. It will have a easy life

I like the scissor style. They sure are expensive. I would like to find a used one but haven't had any luck

Check that dealer they sell a lot of used trailers. I am going to shoot for a scissor unit and check them out tomorrow. Do you have a size you are looking for? Anything you want me to ask for you?
