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.
