Well this guy had to relist his trailer... again. TWO people fell through on paying him for it this time at a 5.9k price point, I don't know if they saw it in person and decided not to or if they just bit off more than they could chew and never followed through on their bids.

I really want to see it in person, even if I don't buy it, just to get the experience of looking at one first hand and carrying through an inspection. I'm getting more hands than me on deck, obviously. I can spot water damage and basic aesthetic issues, but I'm getting more pairs of eyes for the more important stuff - mostly for the axles and wheels, since the rust on the A-frame worries me. I wanna know if the brakes are working, etc, so I'm going to make sure I have a mechanic with me, or at least someone familiar with towing big stuff like boats and trailers.

If it's something I can work with and I actually get the guy in person... he's been burned by buyers at least three times. Unless he's really stubborn, he'll probably take my offer of $4000. And that's only if everything is in the exact condition he says it's in and it's towable. If it's not, I'm knocking that price down a lot. Because if he gives up and sells it to me for dirt cheap... I would definitely strongly consider it.

It's just too close and too convenient for it to pass me by without at least inspecting it. I also messaged every volunteer inspector within 4 hours of the location, but no one has responded. I'll pay a mechanic to inspect it, if I need to.

If I ask a stupid question, it's because I'm a newbie.
