I've been down the road of used trailers, i looked at probably 20-30 used trailers in the 3000.00 range. I ended up buying one temporarily to get my boat home from Michigan to Minnesota. I had to buy 5 new tires for it, modify it for my boat, fix the lights, and it didn't even have a winch. In the end I sold the used trailer and bought a brand new venture aluminum I beam trailer. I was just shy of 5000 out the door with tax, and worth every penny in my opinion. All the used trailers I saw needed tires, lights, etc. I got all the money back out of the used trailer when I sold it, but not my time for locating and working on it.

I got two used trailers both needed a lot of work which meant a big hassle for me. I still will need 10 new tires in the next couple of years. Check out new if you need a trailer to manage your boat. My best trailer is a slideon which was worth restoring. The other was a cheap but a piece of crap. https://www.slideon.com
