Gooseneck is a good brand. They make pretty sturdy trailers, a little on the heavy side. Even though it is aluminum skinned, the frame is still steel so get underneath and check for rust. Some horses have a problem with ramp loading so you may have to work on that. The price does seem a little steep for the year but if the dimensions are "thoroughbred" size, it's a nice trailer.
The second one is a semi-stock trailer and will make a lot of noise going down the road. It's slant load and step-up which I like but it's a rather simple trailer that will be prone to rust. The price is also a little steep.
Of the two, I like the first one.
OH, and be sure to check on the tires and wheel bearing. The tires need to be trailer tires, not passenger car tires.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
