Looking for used snowmobile trailer prices???

Post by snownut 6 » Thu, 18 Jul 2002 08:02:13


Hi,

I am shopping for a used 3 or 4-place trailer, preferably aluminum.  I
have no idea what these go for.  I have run across a 97 Karavan Ultra
18' four place.  Does anyone know how much this trailer is worth?  It
has surge brakes, but no extra's, just the trailer.  Also, does anyone
know where someone can find used trailers in the ND or MN area?

Thanks for any help,

Jason

Just a personal preference..  I would steer VERY clear of surge brakes.
Electric brakes are the way to go.  Especially if you need to straighten out
the trailer that is swaying.. just tap the electric brake module.  On an icy
slide, there might not be enough pushing pressure from the trailer to activate
surge brakes.. since the trailer would be gliding *with* the truck.

Jason, give this a thought. You are forced to stop pointing up on an icy hill
because of an accident. After coming to a stop your loaded (heavy) 4 place
trailer starts pulling you down the hill backwards!!!!! Surge brakes only work
when the trailer pushes against the hitch. IMO surge brakes should only be used
during the frost free months. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the advice.  I have never had a trailer with surge brakes
before and never thought of that problem.  I already have a brake
control in my truck so I will look for one with electronic brakes.

Thanks again,
