Found a good deal on 16' 4 horse BP but needs a lot of work. Got the people who can do different aspects but not one person who can do it all.

Floor needs to be redone
Probably will need new tires- been sitting awhile
Needs paint job, has some rust but no holes
Willing to bet electrical will need to be redone
Will do new brakes for peace of mind

Can probably get this trailer for less than $300. Is it worth it? How much would a new floor run me? new tires?

TYIA!

I could do all that work myself, saving the labor $$$.......but I would still pass.

I would take a SWAG that you'll be at $1200-$1500, plus the initial $300, plus however much you're willing to spend on the paint job.
