AUSSIES WANTED FOR ADVICE!! or anyone who "knows" horse floats

We have an amberly horse float, which we purchased on "mates rates" for a very cheap price. We need a larger float now, but have no idea of the resell price of our float!! I'll upload some pictures tomorrow probably, but heres a description anyway..

2004 standard straight load float. Dual axel with mechanical brakes (anyone can tow). It was fully refurbished in 2006/2007. Im pretty sure it has a breakaway system but im not 100% on that one. Its white in colour with 3-tone back/grey pinstripe paint. It has removable and adjustable chest bars, removable divider, removable stallion divider and chains with rubber covers for the back (it has fittings for breaching doors, but we bought it without them. Unsure why they were changed). It also has a vinyl storm cover as well as sliding windows with purple tint, large front window, interior light and padding on chest bars, divider and float walls. I have a feeling its extended as you can fit 2 >16hh (fat) horses in there with ease, but I cannot verify as I don't know the dimensions. It has two full length access doors, and room up front for a rug/storage compartment (above heads), which also was taken out for unknown reasons. It has a few kick/scramble marks in it from the previous owners horse up the sides of the wall (its wooden, and we're reluctant to change it to rubber as if its not sprayed on it tends to peel).

Any ideas on the resell price of this float..? Thanks!!

We recently sold our 2004?? Karakar extended 2 horse staright load float to upgrade. It had a seperate lockable tack box at the front, rug rack up front, most of the things you described, and a set of 2 steel yards my dad made that mounted on the side. We sold our for 14k, I think. I would say for yours, without seeing it, maybe 12k?

Like Pinto Pony said, have a look in horsedeals and see what similar floats are selling for.

Ok so there's no floats that are close to exactly the same, and there's variating prices throughout depending on brand/colour/style etc. any idea on how much..?

Floats hold their prices really well, so as long as there is no obvious damage to it, you should be selling it for not much less than you brought it for. Just pick a price a little lower, and if no-one calls just drop it a bit.
They also sell really quick on
Good luck :)

OK everyone..I know that your talking about horse trailers (as we call them) Why are they called floats there. Can you post some pics of your floats? Everytime I hear float I think of a parade float.... Funny how the same basic things are called different things in a far off place....
