I've seen a lot of posts on this site about people who bought Galaxie trailers off of eBay for $35-$45. Is there something different about the older kits? Why don't more people just order them from the website?
Galaxie trailer question

I suspect many people aren't aware they can buy directly from Galaxie, Ltd. It's a bit of a rarity (at least it was until recently) that you can (could) buy a model kit direct from the manufacturer.

Oh, ok. It's no problem to order directly from them. They use Pay-Pal and ship Priority. Great customer service!

Also, for a period of time they were out of stock. The previous run had been sold and depleted, so the only place you could find the trailers was second-hand (eBay) or in older hobby shops that had not sold them all.
Good to know Galaxie has run some more! They are great trailers!

There is a difference with the older kits, and the new ones, they change the trailer lengths, the first issued trailers , were 24 tag along, 32 goose-neck, I believe it was a 36 tag and then the 44 gooseneck
They are no longer doing the 44 goose-neck , and the 24 tag-along is now 21, they stop doing the 32 goose-neck as well, so you can only get a 36 tag and 38 gooseneck
The first run did not come with decals, the new issues do, plus, the new issues give you the options of what side you want the door to be on, and you have a choice of rear doors as well
So when you see the trailers on ebay that are 24/32/36/44, those are from the first run from the 90s
Some people may know they can buy direct from Galaxie
