Jumanji - that's what I had thought too. but apparently not?

The good news is this trailer has only had 2 owners. The first bought this trailer new (possibly custom) because they do exotic animals - I actually worked for them a while back. Camels, reindeer, and the crates that hold cougars require more room therefore a bigger trailer.

The second owner is a local vet who needed it because he had one horse who was a tough loader.

Time got away from me tonight so I'm hoping I can get out to see it tomorrow.

I did go look at the trailer today. It does have *some* rust but nothing terribly worrysome. Honestly I don't think most people would have even mentioned the rust but it was a local vet selling it and they are extremely honest people so I think they just wanted everything made aware of.

The next step is I'm trying to figure out the weight of the trailer. I saw the vin plate (not sure what it's called) but the wording was worn down so I could only see the numbers. I've checked through all of featherlite's website without finding any information so I did send an e-mail to featherlite with photos of the trailer in hopes of getting an answer.

Does anybody have a featherlite trailer & can please post a photo of the vin plate so I can try to make sense of it? please???

All - in - all I do like the trailer quite a bit. I have multiple horses I'll be hauling. A few over 16hh who are very hard to load and one of which is a stallion which means hauling parts of boothes, advertisements, stall set ups, etc.

The floor is in EXCELLENT condition and is fully matted (I did pull the mats up and check the trailer floor in multiple spots. The doors could use a bit of WD-40 to help loosen the springs but otherwise are great.

The owner is asking $2500 obo. With a trailer as massive as this I'm assuming they won't have much interest. Does anyone have any idea what they think a reasonable offer would be on it?

For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!
