Check with local house movers, mobile home movers and/or demolition companies.

Depends a lot on distance to disposal site and any load height restriction en route, whether they can just haul to the landfill or are required to cut down to small pieces first or to (in a few states like Calfiornia) have to strip out all metal parts, if has asbestos or lead in it and whether your landfill can take those, etc.

I have seen it cost less than $1000 in cases where the axles and wheels were intact or the house trailer mover had compatible ones in stock, more in $1500-2000 range if needed a mobile crane or front end loader to load it and an extended lowboy tractor trailer to move it - those both in cases where landfill would accept it as-is with only a few hundred $ disposal charge. Many landfills will accept house trailers (with hazardous materials and any reefer/freezer/A/C removed to remove the gas from them) on an appointment basis, then it is hauled by the disposal contractor right to the active dumping surface in the landfill and dropped there so it does not have to be handled by the landfill workers.

I have also seen it run $3000-5000 range where asbestos containing insulation or flooring or siding or roofing or lead paint removal was required first and it had to be gutted for hauling of that to landfill, then all metals had to be cut up the handleable size (commonly 10 feet) and hauled to a metals recycling center for disposal - so a LOT depends on local regulations and if paint/flooring/insulation are considered hazardous waste. Any refrigerant gas-containing devices WILL have to be removed for separate disposal, or drained by HVAC contractor and tagged-out legally that they are drained - landfills and metals recyclers will NOT accept ones that are not officially drained.

Had one remote site cleanup job where 40's asbestos flooring and insulation house trailer with red-lead and cadmium containing frame paint, lead piping and paint, asbestos shingle roofing, and asbestos wall and furnace insulation had to be Tyvek encapsulated and shipped by barge over 2000 miles for disposal as hazardous waste because there was no in-state landfill who would accept it - $30,000 bill - so bottom line can be HIGHLY variable in different cases, though of course that was an extreme case.

One other alternative - sell to a used trailer dealer who will haul it away for free ?

Whichever way, stipulate it has to be handled and disposed of in legal way, and get documentation of proof of disposal so any haz materials matters cannot come back on you.
