A big factor is what kind of load you're putting up. If you're putting
up a 2.45 GHz probe that has no appreciable wind load, then it can be
really light weight.
If you're putting up a 2 foot dish in a 50 mi/hr wind, it's a bit different.
Are you looking for a home built/used, or something that is insurable as
part of a business, etc. THere are differences in things like how it
erects, safety equipment and all that.
Tashjian has several trailers starting at around $10k to sort of give
you an idea.
Various others are in the same general price range.
