Default does this price sound decent?

I found a new trailer and was wondering if this price sounds about right.

16ft car hauler steel deck w/ tie downs
dual axle brakes
I think it was 7000#
removeable fenders
new tires
hideaway ramps

It is about $2300.

I know one can be built but not by me. I kinda need one soon and hate bothering people by borrowing them everytime I want to go somewhere.
What are yopur opinions on the price?

Being in the market myself, that's a pretty good price for an all steel deck. Doesn't mention if its dove tailed, has a breakaway box, or comes with a spare. If it doesn't, then you're definitely going to want to add both of those before leaving the lot... the dove tail is nice if you ever have to tow anything other than a Jeep. Dual axle brakes are nice, and not found on a lot of 7000# trailers.

If you're not up for spending that much, there are deals like this to be had:
