    Nice trailer! Ours is a three horse slant with a little room in the back for a muck bucket and shovle, but we have a full tack room and living quarters! I love it! My mom dreads pulling it though! We have the best trailer on the team, it will becaome our hang out at shows!

    Nope... I really need to though just been waiting for a clear spot in the yard to do it (dang ice)... and a day where someone can help hook me up so I can move the trailer to a better spot in the yard (I don't know how to back the trailer yet I've never driven a fifth wheel... so the BF is going to teach me to back) I think she will be fine (fingers crossed) but for the last 4 years she has been hauled in a stock trailer and she had given me little to no trouble last season loading. I think if I just open up what I can she will feel easier about getting in.

    April is a horrible traveler though (likes to sway) so im really excited to get her in a trailer that wont allow that. I want to get her to the vet to do her teeth, coggins, and shots so I really need to get working on it.

    Ya I did get a goo deal on my stock trailer. It was 15 years old and they gave me $2300 for it... my parents bought it brand new (back in 1994) for $3200 and then I took over the trailer. It was in good shape though- newer flooring, new lights, newer brakes, and new tires, it had some surface rust and the paint was dull, but a solid trailer.

    Hay you got a killer dealon trade in. Shame your in MN. Im in IL abd we recently got out of the trailer buissness keeping a LQ tailer for ourselves and a stock trailer. We ended up sellin the stock trailer and now wiosh we had one. Yours really did sound like a good older trailer.
    Have you head any luck getting the your horse loaded?

    Holler if you want help! Sometimes the SO's can be the most impatient teachers. If we are hauling out somewhere together, we usually take my rig. I can hook up, back and maneuver better than my husband can. Patience is big!

    I bought my slant for a specific horse too. She did not like the straight load at all. I think her large hindquarters had a lot to do with it.

    Thanks!!! My mom could back up a BP better then any other man I've seen (and she has been told that by others) I had the BP thing down after tons of practice but I've been told the GN is different so I will have to work on it.

    Goosenecks have much more forgiveness when backing. BP's tend to jack knife quickly.

    After hauling a gooseneck for 10 years though, I can handle a BP with the best of them.
