Thank you.

Seems about half and half to me. There is a lot of used stuff, but there are a good number of vendors there too.

Merchandise Types

You can find whatever you want! There are hobbyshops and individuals, prices usually are discounted with some of the hobbyshops and "haggling" is the norm even for the hobbyshops and individuals.

Happy Flying!

Trailers at Perry

Hey guys, my son and I are coming for our 1st perry swap meet and wanted to know if in the past did anyone have trailers for sale? Not new ones, but some that guys were wanting to sell so they could get larger ones. We have outgrown the back of the suv and want something we can work on and customize to meet our needs.

Just checking as I have a guy who has a 6x12 for sale with no side door for around $1300 but want something a little smaller and less costly as I need to have some $$$ to spend on planes and stuff..

Also,,, I have read about guys doing some trading and stuff in the parking lots the night before,,, any particular one? We are staying at the Ramada...

Thanks,,

Jefco Auction

This will make the Jefco event look like a roadside one-table produce vendor! There is nothing to compare the SMS to, anywhere in the CONUS!
