OP, thanks for posting the warning, I was actually just looking at a 1995 Bison and if I do drop by to see it, I'm going to be sure to check it closely! (although I'm not 100% I'll bother anymore lol!)

I think this thread is heading south in a few different ways, so I won't comment on the rest of it, just thanks for the heads up about your personal experience! :)

WOW does everything have to become an argument????

Thanks you for the warning about the Bison trailers!!

My friend owned one and absolutely hated it. We redid the whole wiring system and her hubby had to weld ( I think) or bolt some type of plating underneath it on the hitch 2 years ago. It was scrapped this past summer due to to to many issues with structural integrity.

Seems like there are a select group that like to argue

GOOD GRIEF FOLKS!!! Ohiohorseman was just trying to give us ALL a heads up warning!!! You know, just in case someone was trailer shopping, and looking at a Bison.... this would be good info to know. I appreciate the info. I realize that ALL makers of trailers, trucks and cars have lemons sometimes, but it is nice to hear about them so I am a more infomed shopper!!

I am using a trailer that is older (15-20years) and do NOT inspect it every trip and certainly would not get a rug and slide under it after every trip. I am diligent about scooping the poop out and will wash it out once or twice a season. We usually send it to a mechanic to have the bearings checked, the brakes and electrical stuff, but that is about it!!! I don't know of anyone who inspects their trailer like that after every trip. Maybe we SHOULD, but I know I don't and won't.
