A trailer to haul it or a trailer to pull behind it? Either way 300 t0 500 won't do.

Are you talking about a trailer to tow behind it or one to put it on? There's alot of options to go behind it. You can pick up little 4x6 trailers from Lowes or Tractor Supply in that price range. You're not going to find a decent trailer to put it on for that price.

I picked up a 4x6 without a tailgate from Tractor Supply for $375. It's lightweight enough to pull behind the jeep. It only comes with 12" wheels and it sits low to the ground. I did a SOA on it, which raised it up about 4 1/2". I'm looking for a decent priced set of 13" wheels for it, that will get it up another 2" off the ground (13" trailer tires are 4" larger in diameter) and should be good to go. Good enough to get down the highway and to the camp site anyway.

i got a nice 5 x8 from tractor supply store,but paid $650 f0r it. its nice and light w/ a 1000# capacity and 13" whels. you might find some homemade trailers in that range,but i decided to go a few extra since it included tags,title and inspection.nice feature also is a ramp gate,which makes it easy to load my sons 4 wheeler and mower. plus its NEW!!!

I just picked up a 4X6 from Northern tools for $300 or 350 can't remember. It has the 12" wheels but like others I did the SOA and will find some other wheels to put on. I'm thinking about putting on some Jeep wheels and getting 33's for the trailer. I just have to hack up the fenders and put new fenders on later. It did not come with a tailgate but I plan on making my own anyway.

I bought this from Lowes, 5x8 and around the $500 range. I flipped the springs over axle (10 minute job) to get some extra height and it works great! I've even pulled it through some rough terrain, it skids right along. I've been meaning to buy some taller/wider tires that they sell at the tractor supply stores but just havent messed with it lately.

To the OP, What are you planning to use the trailer for?

If you are hauling something like drywall, then you would need a 4x8.

Are you looking for something for camping? I have a Reese Backpacker trialer. It is like a clam sheel cargo unit for your roof, only bigger and on wheels. Bought used from a friend,not sure of new price but google should get more info.

Of course, if you are looking for a toy hauler (dirtbikes, etc.) then you have other avenue to pursue.
