Default Aluminum Trailers

What is the deal with the prices of these Aluminum trailers. 17,200.00 for a Myco. Yes it has a trailer guard, spare tire and tool box, no different than my 04 at 12K. Last year it was just under 14K. I swear I'm back in Katrina pricing, I find this ridicules, what does everyone else think going up 3200. in less than a year. Something is going on. That's 23% INCREASE. Jeff

The trailers have definatley gone up. Ours listed for $14,200 and a friend bought the same trailer 2 years ago for $9,800.

PM buyafountain.com. He may be able to get you a better price on a MYCO

I hear the painting boat business prices have dropped at least 25%, due to over whelming competion. See now I'm saving money. Thanks for the discount, see ya after the first week in August.

The price of raw aluminum has soared in the last 12-18 months, might have something to do with it. My advice, start recycling all those beer cans!
