I think each bought theirs for $100 and they were 15 - 20 feet long.
For sure. 5th wheel trailers are expensive, so $100 is a steal. Heck, the wheels and tires alone are probably worth it.

A stranger offered to trade his dual axle ~12ft x ~6ft trailer in good condition for the rusty 5th wheel trailer with completely rotten flooring my dad had. We both probably got a good deal as we didn't need a hay trailer, and apparently he didn't need a car-hauling sized trailer.
