You buying from a private party or a dealer? A new one cost $19,500 (per riverson's post) so if private party, you are paying loan off and they are looking to get out of a 7 year old trailer.. offer $14,000 ..if dealer, I would offer what they gave on trade which was probably $12,500.
First rule of buying a used trailer is DO NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH IT, there are a million trailers to pick from. I would recommend one less than 5 years old so you will not be trading a 10+ year old trailer in a couple years for sub $10K.
You will never profit on a trailer but you can limit your loss.
