Used Bushtec Trailer prices

I recently purchased a Dauntless trailer hitch and am now looking for a used Bushtec Turbo+2 trailer. I'm having some trouble determining fair price ranges for a used trailer. Beyond determining the overall condition, mileage and included upgrades/accessories, how do I determine if a listed price is reasonable. For example, I saw a white, 2007 Turbo+2 with 5K that appears to be in good excellent condition that includes spoiler lid, and bra protector for $2,300.00. This appears to be priced on the high side, since a similarly equipped 2012 Turbo+2 can be purchased for about $3K. I find it hard to believe that a 5-year old trailer would support such a high retail value.
Anyway, back to my question. Is there a guide to ballpark the value for a used Bushtec?

Re: Used Bushtec Trailer prices

You need to do a lot of homework,
have the cash on hand and be ready to "pounce" and possibly travel
when the right deal comes along,
be patient and "it will"

Start lurking at the Bushtec forum,
the motorcycle trailer towing forum,
and browse the Goldwing forums.

That's how I bought, used (and sold at a profit)
three previous trailers until I got exactly what I wanted

in the order they are pictured, not purchased
1st pictured trailer was bought in Texas (Spring 2005)
2nd Florida (2004) 3rd Denver (2006) 4th North Carolina (Fall 2005)
(# 3 is the keeper)

Re: Used Bushtec Trailer prices

Hans is right. These hold thier value really well and you have to get lucky to find the right one. I picked up a color matched 2006 Turbo 2+ in 2009 with spare tire and chrome tounge and cooler kit for $2,700. New it would have been over $4,500. I found it on this site and closed the deal within minutes of posting.

Re: Used Bushtec Trailer prices

Thanks for the responses. Sounds like I've got a bit of work to do, but I'm up for the challenge. Seems like the addition of the trailer is a worthwhile endeavor, especially if I want the wife to travel with me.

Re: Used Bushtec Trailer prices

Never thought I would ever pull a trailer,
but once I got started I've loved every aspect of it.

You can tell "the wife" that with a trailer,
you'll have the space to carry all the things she'll want to buy
while "shopping" in distant exotic places.

If she's anything like mine,
she'll have the bike "packed" when you get home from work.
