    I'm in the market for a Trailer. If I buy new I want a 6x12 Box Trailer with a rear ramp door and a side Door. But I'm Trying to find out if there is a market for used Trailers. I would be willing to Step down to a 6x10 and even give up the rear ramp door. Any info you guys could give to help out would be really great. Thanks in advance Guys.

    Check the classifieds and ebay. There are several local classified papers such as Wheels and Keels that have them, too. Not to say a whole bunch of dealers in the Tampa Bay area.

    Make sure you get good brakes with a trailer that size. When I was in the music business we would load the sucker up with our gear until the tires groaned. I had hydrauic surge brakes that would pull things down to a stop almost faster than without the trailer.

    what are you planning on hauling? It may not be a good idea to give up the rear door

    I will be hauling a motorcycle and random stuff but mainly the motorcycle. I can use a ramp to get into the trailer if I don't get the ramp door.

    Craigslist is a good place to look for a used trailer but if you find one check over it thoroughly.
