Its already starting a little around here. Local dealer dropped their large dump trailers from $20,900 to $19,500.I havent seen prices start to drop yet.
Been looking since right around the time c19 hit for a new trailer.
Watched the prices for what I want go from $6000-$8000 range up to $10,000-$13000 for the same trailers.
And guys that have 5-6 year old trailers in average condition for the age are wanting new price.
Needless to say I am still without a new trailer yet. Keep waiting on the market to bust. If material cost is back down thats good. They gonna keep making and selling at higher prices until they cant. Then they will start lowering prices to start moving volume again... Might take a few months or a few years. But over the last year or two.....hardly any "equipment" type trailers setting on lots. Pandemic had "Everyone" with a "truck" buying a trailer to start their own business. Landscape, construction, hot-shot, etc. But I am seeing more and more trailers on lots now.....Supply and demand. There was short supply and high demand. Now the demand is lessening, supply increasing, and material cost coming down......sounds to me like reducing prices in the near future
Construction is going to die a painful death this summer, then it’s the lumber & millwork yards, then it’ll be construction equipment, like trailers.
This fall winter oughta look like the beginnings of a full blown economic catastrophe.
THEN prices will be more attractive.
