As of 2015, the cost of an open car trailer ranges between $2,000 and $10,000. Closed car trailers can cost between $6,000 and $20,000. These prices vary depending on certain factors.
The price of an open-style car trailer varies depending on the length and type. While steel trailers typically cost more than aluminum trailers, they are also heavier to tow. Those buying an enclosed car trailer can expect to pay more if they add optional features such as tow mirrors. Additionally, the type of hitch on the trailer affects the price.
Supplementary costs associated with vehicle trailers include insurance, trailer tires and storage fees. Trailer tires are usually non-standard sizes and are difficult to find in some areas. Storage fees range between $20 and $100 per month when storing a trailer at an outdoor storage facility.
