    How much do you think itís a reasonable price to replace all the cross members, new deck with brazilian wood and paint but before paint it needs to be sandblasted. Itís on a step deck big rig trailer in california.

    Big question. You need to figure out for yourself what the cost of materials will be locally and how much time you're going to have into this project. I rebuild quite a few trailers and it's all different from trailer to trailer. That's one big job stripping and replacing crossmembers, I've literally split and gutted outside frame flatbeds to get it done one crossmember at a time working back to the suspension subframe. Some came out to 15-20,000 bucks with new suspension, wiring and air plumbing. Still far cheaper than a new trailer and a 1974 title is cheaper to license,

    An excellent reply from 12V71. How would anyone know even a ball park without more information?

    it's an awful "big ballpark" without the details

    thank you that really helped me decide on $12,500 just wood and cross members seems fair enough considering he will keep me busy with other jobs.
