The only reason to ever own one of these trailers is because you have a lightweight vehicle and cannot pull a slightly heavier trailer . These trailers are extremely expensive for what you get, they jiggle around like a bowl full of jelly when being used ( even without a horse in them) ! Because they are so lightweight they are also extremely flimsy. I bought one because I had a lightweight SUV and I have regretted it ever since. I should have spent the money on a bigger truck instead. I have had tons of problems with it since the day I got it and I bought it NEW, The butt bar has fallen off twice in transit, the trailer leaks when it rains , the paint peeled off the wheel rims the first time I washed it, and most recently the rear tailgate latches jiggled themselves loose while in transit When I got to my destination the entire tailgate was only being held up by a fraction of an inch on one latch! They also had a run of quality problems in the past where the fiberglass roofs were not attached properly and the roofs blew off the trailers while being pulled. So I would be very careful about buying a used one. Personally if I could do it all over again I would buy a kingston, but I'm stuck with what I've got an expensive White elephant . Good luck!
