    Where is the best place to buy a trailer?

    would ones on gumtree be any good?

    What should you look for when buying a trailer?

    Have you bought one? was it worth it?

    I got one for free when I bought a boat.
    It's worth it because I wouldn't be able to get the boat out of the water without it.

    Depends what size you want.. Some Bunnings sell them at pretty cheap price for a 6x4 with Cage... and not too expensive.

    Depends what you want it for. There's a heap of types.
    Gumtree would be the go or local classifieds.
    I had a 6x4 trailer and could get a good tonne I on there for trips to the tip with some creative loading and DIY hungry boards. Do love a good trailer.

    When we moved from Melb to Cairns we sold pretty much everything. In the past couple of years there's only been one thing we've regretted getting rid of - our 7x5 trailer with cage and cover.

    We bought it new off ebay from a place at Ferntree Gully for a couple of grand. It paid for itself many times over.

    @fullylucky Just pick up some stuff from bunnings and they will give you free trailer hire for a couple of hours. Gumtree doesn’t offer this service.

    When I bought my dryer from good guys I used the trailer from Bunnings to transport it home. I purchase a piece of timber and used the trailer to transport.... ;) win win.

    The real question is - did you then return the timber for a refund?

    It's one thing having the trailer, another having the towbar.
