Do you have a tractor to pull it? If so, you might go to a weighing station and check the wright with and without the trailer. The difference is the trailer. Of course, you need to subtract the wheels and axles. You might calling a few auto recycling center to see what they’d pay, since that’s who will end up buying it anyway. My guess is that you could get a few hundred for it. Aluminum is not all that expensive.

This source quotes about $0.70 per pound. But there is a middle man to feed, so you won’t get that much.
