Default I have 2 30' trailers, which one should I sell??

I had a Nextrail triple axle trailer built for my 31' Sonic. Aluminum, electric brakes on 2 axles, spare tire, 10500 lbs. I sold the Sonic before the trailer was delivered.

The new boat I bought came with a South Florida tandam axle, surge brakes on 1 axle, 7000 lbs.

I bought a Superboat 30 Y2K that is considerably lighter than the Sonic. I have had the Nextrail for sale since July but no bites. I'm selling for $500.00 less than I paid for it and it has never been used.

Would I have better luck selling the South Florida trailer??

Thanks

I might take some time but I would look through the classifieds for private parties or dealers selling boats without trailers and offer a commision if they can move one of your trailers on a boat sale. I know I've seen plenty of boats listed with out trailers. Here's another thought, turn one into a flat bed for a car hauler or a toy trailer. Those seem to sell alot easier.

If it doesn't sell your asking too much. Personally for the $500 difference I would order a new one set up for my boat. That $500 would buy a currant model year, a warranty, and little or no set up time. There has to be enough of a spread in the new and used price to entice someone not to order a new one. Seems that $500 isn't enough or it would be sold.

I agree put hem both up for sale and keep the one that doesn't sell.
