We are looking at buying a T3C or a M100 to convert into a over-landing/camping trailer to pull behind my CJ3A. What are the going prices for a clean not rusted out, ready to go trailer? I found a T3C locally and the guy wants 2100 for it. Is that out of line? Thanks in advance.

I think that’s a little high. While not completely clapped out, I just picked up a T3-C for $450, it’ll need some floor repairs and a few parts thrown at it, but I’ll be in it for maybe $750.

To me this makes it a bit more difficult. 
 
 
I've seen a trailer or two go for near that much.  And like moak, I've seen solid trailers for much less - but needing some work.  Ready to go will usually be a bit more than a fixer-upper.
 
The trailer's value is what a buyer is willing to give for it.  If you search on a few sites you may strike gold.

I found my '53 M100 last summer on local Craigslist, $450. Ex-Michigan National Guard, then owned by a local school district for 20 years and stored....inside! It had its rear panel cut out, like many of the 'civilianized' military trailers. Condition 8 out of 10, including parking brake, landing gear and all 3 data plates. I fabbed up a tailgate for it and am now stripping it for a paint job. I've replaced wheel bearings and tires. So, the classic 1/4-ton "jeep trailers" are still out there for less than exorbitant prices. I'd probably pay up to $1000 for a good one. The quality of these little guys and their ruggedness in unapproachable by new trailers today. And, they were originally paid for by U.S. taxpayers...

I think value/price is very subjective to the trailer itself. I bought mine for $500 it was barn kept had all its wood & bows. only missing light wiring & plate holder. The only thing I didn't do my self was sand blast the large parts @ $310 after all is said & done paint, new tires, bearings, wiring harness etc. I'm into it finished at $2000.00 so if I were going to sell it what would I ask? My point being it really depends on what you want & how original you want it my .02 Regards Mike
