I have a 16' x 7' flatbed trailer, steel frame, wood planking. It has
tandem axles, electric brakes, and is a factory made trailer. 15" wheels, 6
lug. The ramps slide under the back from the sides. It has a spare. It
has a battery box with battery for the electric brakes, I assume.
What price range would a trailer like that sell for? It is not cosmetically
perfect, it is a '99. It is solid, though, and everything works. I'm just
trying to set a value on it in my quest for a larger trailer for my backhoe.
Just like everything else, wouldn't the location, location, location
of the item impact it's value?
I'd take it over to my local "trailer store" and ask them to give me
both a trade-in value and and private sale value.
Obviously the condition is going to weigh into the value big time,
especially if it needs to be inspected (brakes, lights, tires) and
will or will not pass as is.
Your 16' trailer if for sale here would be $1,000 give or take with a
usable deck in driving condition. Paint, fresh tires, good deck,
bulldog hitch, tongue jack, and weight, spacing, and size of steel
undercarriage all can raise the price.
I don't know what size backhoe you are thinking about, but none that I
know will work with a 16' trailer. A full size hoe is crowding 27' and
15,000#. You better check the weight rating of the axles, they sound
like 5,000# axles. Many trailers only have brakes on one axle and it
would be worth pulling a wheel to see the pads.
Back hoe trailers are usually 3 axle or 2 axle with duals. Better check
the GVW of your truck, I suspect your way past a 1 ton.
