Where/How to Sell Trailer

Any recommendations on how/where to put a trailer up for sale? I have a 2004 Wakesetter VLX, and I no longer need the trailer. Thanks!

When my last boat was totaled from fire damage I was thinking I might end up having to sell the trailer alone.  I had planned on just listing it on the TMC classifieds - I had seen them listed there from time to time.  I looked at my original pprwrk and the original price of my 2014 boatmate trailer (for 23lsv) was around $4500.  I was thinking I would sell it for around $2k.  I talked to local Malibu dealer and asked them what I should sell it for and they advised me that new trailers for 23lsv's are running close to $10k now, so I should probably list it in the $5000-$6500 range.  I ended up being able to keep the fire damaged boat and sold it with the trailer but I did factor in about $6k for the trailer.  I just say that so you have some reference for your trailers value and that it might be a little more valuable than what you had paid for it originally.  I trust you have thought out selling it but keep in mind that although trailers are a pain in the butt to store (especially if you have a boathouse the boat lives in) they really do come in handy if you need to ever sell the boat or relocate it in advance of a freak storm, or just want to check out some new areas or need to get major services done that can't be done in your boathouse.  Otherwise GLWS!

Orlando Florida area. I can provide pics - but it's in really great shape. Stored inside its whole life. Have not gotten around to a price yet.
