    It can hold up to 1,500lbs of payload, rear barn doors, good tires and chrome wheels, lights all work and are wired correctly, and good hitch and jack. What is your best guess it's worth?

    I see 4' x 8' trailers that have a 2k-2.5k capacity here in oregon for $500 - $1000 all the time.

    The most I'd pay would be 500.

    Just out of curiosity what would yall pay for this bad boy? It'll haul anything you can fit in it. It has no suspension, the axle is some type of offset 3rd member type and is welded to the frame. My girlfriend's dad said it reminded him of the Graped of Wrath. Its my little jallopy trailer.

    Wells it weighs just short of nothing (notice its almost entirely wood) so hauling it behind a 5k truck it is literally not noticable, you cant even see it in any of the mirrors cause its so skinny.

    for the trailer w/ sides, i'd wouldnt pay more than 500. but a buddy of mine sold a hideous 6ft flatbad trailer for that much, that i would have taken straight to the dump. if there are alot of gardeners around where u live, you could get
    4-500 pretty easy.

    as for the second one, looks halfway decent besides the no suspension. 200?
