Can anyone help? What should I ask for Sundowner trailer?
I need to appropriately price my trailer.
It is a 1997 Sundowner 2 horse slant bumper pull with tack room. Alumninum shell with steel frame. I believe it was manufactured before they switched to the troublesome powder coating that has caused problems for newer models.
Has higher mileage but has been maintained and is in good shape.
A few minor things need to be replaced, nothing structural. A couple of running lights, the overhead loading lights, overhead vent in dressing room needs to be replaced, missing key for door lock on dressing room. A few dents in the tire coverings.
Any suggestions? I've looked up similar trailer listings and the prices vary widely!
I always go to horsetrailerworld.com or searchtempest.com (it's a broad search for craigslist) and see what is avaliable in your area. The main thing in pricing it is do you want to move it quickly or are you indifferent about selling it?
Age and miles will lower the price. I see similar (or newer) trailers listed in my area for $3500-$5000. Are you willing to do some repairs? Not too hard to rekey a lock, and not expensive to have it done either. Same with running lights, I scraped the running light off one side and had to replace the whole deal, bought one at Walmart and DH slapped it back on, I think it was $9.

You may even be able to get a spare key from Sundowner without having to rekey the trailer. I've heard plenty of stories of the key working in the lock of Sundowners and people accidentally going into the wrong trailer thinking it was their own. I don't think they use too many different versions of locks so it's kind of a "one key fits many" type of thing.
It's not about the color of the ribbon but the quality of the ride. Having said that, I'd like the blue one please!
