how much is a car trailer worth?

Hey guys been looking at getting a trailer so I can haul odds and ends and maybe even a car at some point. I found a 21 ft wood floor car trailer with a winch for 700 would it be worth it and will my jeep have any problem pulling it?

Thanks

700 sounds fair with winch and good tires, all four......double axle? gate? light work?

It will definitely pull it, my uncle has a 4.7 Jeep like mine and he pulls a 27 foot camper. But yea as long as floor ain't rotted and metal and frames not to rusted and tires and rims check in good you should be set a good price there.

4.0 is torquey enough.. Just manage the load it pulls.

How are the brakes and wiring? Replacing wiring and brakes can get time consuming and costly awfully quick. To me it doesn't sound like all that great of a deal. Being all wood, it's going to be heavy also. Don't expect the 4.0 to tow it well, especially since you are lifted with larger tires and 3.55 gears.
