In fact, just a few days before that, I was pulling it at 65 mph on the freeway loaded with 2 full-sized race horses. Other problems over the years have included excessive deterioration of the loading ramp, side doors and rear windows, and frequent light and electrical failures. This trailer is complete junk and the manufacturer has refused to take any responsibility. Litigation is likely. Be warned. Bison trailers are cheaply made, very hazardous, and not worth the money.
Yes and it was cheaply made when you bought it and at a cheap price. Now I wouldn't expect the axle to fall off but the ones I have seen are rusting new on the lot so it doesn't suprise me.
