Fair price for a 21ft toy hauler

I'm thinking about getting a mid-sized trailer for my mountain biking trips so I can haul all my camping gear, bikes, and equipment in one package vs. having to load everything in the truck bed and playing a game of cargo-tetris just to get it to all fit.

Upon browsing for trailers it seems that prices are pretty steep, eg. in the $20,000-25,000 range, even used. Is it just me or are we not in a recession? I would think trailers could be had for dirt cheap now-a-days this they are completely a discretionary item. Perhaps I'm just looking in the wrong places? Or perhaps the sellers still have big fat rv loans?

Is anyone else shopping around for a toy hauler? You know, the kind where the rear door folds down to load in a dirt bike or quad...and that comes with some amenities like a propane stove, gas pump and a generator. Something around 5,000lb or less would be ideal.

I just sold my 2005 19ft Attitude toy hauler for 12.5k. It was loaded with goodies and pristine. You should be able to find several deals like that. Of course the market is somewhat saturated here in Cali, so maybe the deals are better.

Nice that is a good deal. Did you have a generator or fuel pump? Feel free to throw up some pics!

I don't know where you are, but a friend of mine (in Maryland) has a 24ft. double axle, no generator or gas pump. It is finished off on the inside.
Asking 7,500.
