I bought mine new for just under 3k.I hear you, it took me 3-4 months of looking for a used trailer, I needed a bigger one. Then, my neighbor sold me his, he bought it new, left the county 3 times, 8x20' 2500 bucks, smoking deal!!
Used ones, are going for not a cent under 2.5k.
Are people that desperate that they don't want to pay the extra $500 for something brand new? With out the grease stains on the floor, wear on the tires and breaks and someone's decal on the side?
