4300 bucks for a 6×10?! Is that a pretty common price for SoCal? Seems really spendy.

I was thinking the same thing. Bought my Look trailer, 7x14, barn doors, 7' interior height and screwless exterior almost 5 years ago for $4700 +tax.

And I'm on the central coast of Cali. and things 'ain't cheap here either.

Looks good though Mike! You'll get a ton of use out of it.

I haven’t bought a cargo trailer but my 7x10 dump trailer was $5k out the door. 100% financed, in Fresno, CA.

I think he got it with some money already preloaded in it. He uses it on Fridays to haul all his cash to the bank. A dump trailer might be flippant.

Are you kidding? We couldn't survive on what little she makes. And no I'm not sick of dealing with a trailer. It's nice to not deal with hauling **** in the back of my truck.

4300 bucks? I didn't shop but 2 places, It wasn't worth my time. Both places were comparable. It was more about having what I wanted on the lot vs. Waiting 12 weeks. I would've paid more actually.

Re: Need Advice For Small Trailers In Big City's


I hear ya. I got lucky on mine as I didn't want to order either and have to wait, but I did want a few specific things. Turned out he had 2 coming in a few days after I talked to him. Turned out to be exactly what I wanted and bought it no more than 10 minutes after it came off the truck.

Same thing wound up happening with the dump trailer I bought beginning of this year from the same dealer!

Went down to a trailer dealer to check out a 5x10 but was only 5 foot high. No 6 foot high in 5x10 in stock.
Looks like I'll just be getting a 6x10
Custom order is months

So 4300 dollar trailer wasn't worth your time but a thousand dollar battery saw was worth it?

I was thinking you would save at least a grand not 100 bucks.

As far as the saw goes, you spent several weeks researching the mafell saw.

Probably enjoys researching power tools but not trailers. I'm seeing big price gaps wit quality. I found a cheap trailer but has 5/8ths walls and floor. And the exterior metal is thin and wavy.

No I didn't. I started a thread on it. Never once drove anywhere to look at one and spent time online looking at them. Not for price but for what I wanted. The same thing I did for a trailer.

There's two trailer companies within 45 minutes from me, I went to both. I wasn't shopping price for saws nor was I shopping price for trailers.

I was about getting exactly what I wanted. I found it and paid what they asked.

Doing a quick search will show my price for what I got is comparable with all of them around here. They certainly are not equal. You can get a 6x10 trailer for cheap. And on the same lot they'll have another 6x10 for more. Because they aren't the same. He had a 6x12 cheaper than my 6x10 on his lot. But I didn't want a 6x12 and it wasn't as nice as my 6x10.
