The trailer “cost” $350 on paper. The coupler needed to be added and a new jack, too. The coupler and the jack were $30 each, and to put them both on it cost another $112.50. To have it hauled by, essentially, a tow truck about 35 miles was $157.50 ($90/hour). Doing it this way I didnt need to get a Bill of Sale or register it or get the brakes checked out or lights put on it, but I will have to do that eventually so I think I just wasted a bit of money. I had ~$3000 budgeted for the trailer, so either way I saved, but if I had known I would have done a little more and paid the costs that I’ll end up paying soon. In total, the trailer set me back $704.58.
