    Some of the smaller ones list for $125k. But you have to call for the larger size tanks. My guess 180k and up, maybe 225k for the trailers with the wing.

    I've seen some decked out Mississippi Tank trailers being pulled by Accord.

    Or some really nice westmor tankers at Farmers oil and a few other carriers.

    But these Exosent seem to be the top of the line. The low center of gravity seems to be there advertising pitch.
    I recently saw a loves truck pulling one. But Loves/Gemini seems to buy bigger trailers for some strange reason. But they don't run overweight permits so I don't see a need for them to have trailers larger than 10800 gals.

    I've only seen 12400 gal or larger trailers in the North east, Michigan, and the North west. But hell im sure trailers those size are needed in the winter time.

    The worthless carrier I use to pull C3 for had one but the trailer sat unused for years.

    Ritchie bros auction yard in Houston has several LP and cryo tankers ready for auction. Some look like pure rust buckets. But I guess they could be brought back to life if the company or individual buying it puts the money into it. Also some of the companies that pull mc-330's or mc-331's have older trailers they sell from time to time. Hell I past by 2 every month that look like they have been sitting for years.

    Amazing things can be done at a re-furb. Matlack did it a lot. When they sent me a group of students and we walked the yard, after seeing a new DOT407 spec plate, I'd show them the reburb 1966 MC 303 with it's tiny little spec plate. The old wagon usually looked better than the 'new' unit too.
