2 Horse Trailer Restoration

So If you saw my last board post I will looking into getting a horse trailer. That last horse trailer I looked at was a mess. The lady said it was 2000 and everything was fine with it. HA HA HA HA HA, not. When we went to go see it. It was much worse then she had said. The frame was so bad......So I scraped that option. Soon after I found a different horse trailer that was around 2 hours away. My trainer was leaving for a horse show for the week. So he could not get it. So I asked if she could bring it up. She did for gas money. Its a nice 2 horse straight load. Needs some rust work. Some welding. New paint. Other then that its fine. Frame is good. Pulls nice and straight. I was planning on painting it in my college classes that I am taking this fall. They are on body repair and painting for cars....I have painted my own car and knows what it takes. So I was wondering, what color ideas do you think would look good. I like blues, whites and purples.

I think white would be cooler if that matters....or at least a white top. The link isn't working for me.

White is a good color for resale. Although blues & greens, etc are nice for accents, they will clash with the tow vehicle.

That's a NICE lil wagon!

From the pics, it looks ready to roll.

As for color, is resale the plan anytime soon? Or are ya keeping it to use as long as it fits your needs?

Resale, I'd go white or cream. To keep, I'd do something cool.
You could stay with a basic color, I'd suggest a lighter color, but you could do "ghost" graphics or a pearl clear, or white with heavy metal flake (sounds funky but is actually neat). Could even ghost your last name on the nose.
The options are plenty, but I'd think, for you, jazz it up a lil. And make it YOURS and fun.

Yep it is ready to roll. Its super nice. Just needs pads, and paint and I am done. I don't plan on selling it. I only have 1 horse and don't need anything bigger.

That's the same style as my first trailer. It looks tall - do you know the height? If you're keeping it, then I think you paint to either match or compliment your tow vehicle. Please remember the before, during and after pictures.

P.S. Whatever the outside colour, apparently horses prefer a light coloured interior as it makes it more inviting and less claustrophobic.

Yes the height was around 7 something. Its thoroughbred height. I plan on painting the inside a cream color.

That's awesome, congrats! I just bought my first horse trailer a couple weeks ago. It actually looks exactly like yours, from the placement of all the doors and windows, right down to the horseshoe hooks in the tack area. I saw a horse trailer the same color as yours on craigslist. You wouldn't happen to be in AZ? From your pictures it looks possible. My trailer is an 83 Taylor that was actually made in Glendale AZ, that's why I ask.
