I have a 1994 Adam for which I paid $1,000, and I also live in south central Virginia. Mine has a manger and tack storage areas. I don't think that one is such a good deal for that price.

I do like the aluminum Trail-Et, but they don't give a year of manufacture. That last one is also an Adam, but a stock edition. Those things new cost about $3,500.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I sold a 93 Trailet w/ a tack room two years ago for $2300.00. That's an aluminum skin trailer with a steel frame. I don't think I'd buy this one because it doesn't have a tack room, but If I did... $1500.00.

thanks for all the input. its definitly food for thought. i was about to go drop $3G tomorrow on this joint.

my beef is. i will pull this trailer maybe 5 to 15 mins down the road once a wk, perhaps couple times. i detest the idea of spending more than this for something that sits there, not being used, but a few minutes at a time. and i havent seen anything relatively close to condition for even close to the price.

i guess i'll wait, and keep borrowing.

the last one new, just down the road at a dealer, is $4250.00.........the stock one w/o the divider and being 6'6" tall.....its $3800.00. dealer told me most the trail riders that buy a true horse trailer from him eventually come back and buy the open stock one.

The next trailer I get will be a modified stock. That bar in the back is annoying, even if you don't use the divider. I do however, really like the front escape door in mine. That's a really nifty feature.

yup, im kinda leaning toward something like the stock one. that post about using it for other things really made me start to think.

even though its steel. and Joe you are right about steel rusting quick on this type of thing, but i have the ability to do repairs. and i reckon if i dont let it get to far outa hand, a little maintance every couple yrs outa keep it looking decent.

who knows, i can be fickle. esp. when it comes to spending money.

In my opinion over priced. But in looking at www.horsetrailerworld.com seems to be in line with what they are selling for. As for the top of the doors...they probably just have them off. I never kept mine on.
