    2014 Wabash dura plate HD, aluminum wheels outside onces,vented with ladder /steps to access the front one ,close side post( forgot how close ) air ride, brand new 4 kelly tires and 4 new 4 Michelin x line Tires, tire rack under the trailer with a brand new tire ( Chinese tire ) haldex weight scale

    Most of these things probably don’t even matter when trying to sell it, but it was my first van had to spec it to my likings, and also this van always used gently not drivers slamming it into docks..

    If the inside looks just as good as the outside I would imagine somewhere in the realm of 20K. Somewhere.

    The inside is in very good condition, only used it for light loads that I had a contract with hauling rice to a super market locally, roughly 20k pounds but these dry vans rates are so ####ty,especially Running spot market, planning on getting a reefer and running from the Bay Area to LA

    Nice trailer man. I’d say $15,000 would be fair. Hell who knows 6 months ago may have gotten 20k

    ps. If that’s your baby I’d keep it. 15 or 18k isn’t that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things if you know you can come back to that trailer and go.

    Yeah I’d probably end up listing it for 17k on Craigslist and let it go for 15k

    These dry vans rates are so disrespectful in California

    So you decided to let it go then?

    Don't you have some property where you can store that baby? Its just too nice to let go.

    I hate to let it go, I had paid I think around 39k for this back in 2013 with the things I wanted on it, but it’s not smart for me to keep it.Bay Area truck parking is $650 for each truck and I have rented a reefer trailer so to keep this trailer I am basically paying an extra 650 for parking this alone and also paying reefer rent, was planing on selling this and buying my own reefer trailer so I don’t waste a lot of money, and I don’t want to rent this trailer out to somebody because I feel like they going to Abuse the heck outta this

    With what property values are in the Bay Area 650 sounds about right.
