Seems heavy load for just one axle to carry. But no experience of these things so may well be wrong.

The weight on most axles is over a ton? isn't it.

I think the car is worth about 700-750 .to buy a new branded trailer between 1400 - 1800, how ever this is not a branded trailer so about 750, so all in all in my humble opinion not to bad a deal, better still if you can bid it for less

He himself is clearly not happy with the unit for one reason or another, he appears to have a branded trailer along side, also a towing dolly is in one shot,
The trailer for sale is limited to very small cars and racing minis etc, as such my valuation on the trailer would be around 400, the car on it around 600 or less Its seems cute, and a solution to a problem, but I feel you could do better buying a branded trailer (club class) second hand for 1000 and you would have a much better choice of car that would fit on it,
Also the option to change car without the need for another trailer
So over all not a value for money solution although I except the trailer may have cost upward of a grand to build from new

OK, I was thinking about 800-1000. Just good to get a few different views, Thanks.
