Buying a used trailer instead of a new model can save you a lot of money. Similar to buying a pre-owned car, the value of a trailer typically depreciates very rapidly during the first couple of years and then levels off after a period of time. It's not uncommon to see deals out there where you can pick up a 2-5 year old trailer for roughly one third of the price that the original owner paid for it (assuming regular wear and tear). There are even many situations where you can get a great deal on a 1-3 year older trailer that has only been used a few times and is in mint condition. For example, doing a bit of quick research online you will find that you can buy a 2008 7 X 14 Haulmark Low Hauler motorcycle trailer with very little wear and tear for $3,100. By contrast, the MSRP on a brand new 2010 model is approximately $8,500. That equates to 64% savings on a 2 year old model by doing 10 minutes of research.
