18.1hh and fitting in a trailer.

I have an 18.1hh Hanoverian Gelding who is super hard to haul simply because of his size. He does fit in our trailer but not very comfortably. I am wondering if anyone knows of a brand of trailer that is reasonably priced. We are probably going to be looking at straight loads only because we have a slant and there is no way he will fit in one of the slots, he is too long.
I'm new to this so haven't figured out just how to get pictures on here yet!

Why can't you give him 2 slots in a slant load?

I haul a 7'6 tall 7'2 wide slant load and my draft horses fit in it just fine. Before I sold him my 19hand Belgian fit in there with plenty of head room and he was a very heads high gelding. My clyde is long backed and she fits into the slant with plenty of butt room and my fatty fat Percheron fits as well. My vanner doesn't count since he's not drafty size. I have a royal T trailer.

He is too long for a slant. With both spaces in our 2 horse slant he is squished. It is not so much the height of the trailer... we can find tall trailers but the length is what is really proving to be an issue.

Wow, he is gorgeous and huge. I don't know if a combo-stock type trailer would be a better option? If not, you may have to spring for a 3 horse trailer and give him run of the whole thing.

Ooh, just looking around and one like this might work for you. It appears that the right hand side is a fair bit longer than the left.
