Anyone have any pricing ideas?
My assessment is that there are probably better deals out there. In particular you should be able to find a trailer in better condition for that kind of money.
Mid 70s trailers are not especially sought after and frequently come up in more or less ready-to-camp condition at those sorts of prices.
Your situation -- how important saving a couple thousand dollars is to you, how soon you need the trailer in hand, how much time you're willing to spend shopping, how far you're willing to go -- will determine your decision.
