When I was looking for a trailer, I looked at Benderups. Had a mechanic friend go look under one for me and his words were to the effect of "You couldn't pay me to tow that out of this parking lot unloaded".
They are riveted, welded and all in the wrong places. Put a horse in there, drive down a highway and get a gust of wind and I don't know if the welds would hold up because there is not a bolt in the thing and where a "real" trailer has straight, untouched steel, these things are 1' pieces of aluminum welded together. Scary, scary, scary.
I would not recommend one to my worst enemy.

Good luck!

Don't bother calling WW, just hit a scale. Not sure about CO but in OR the leave the truck scales on when the station isn't manned so that's where I always go. If you have time and are curious weight it hitched and unhitched.

na, you're totally right darrin I think they leave the weigh stations open becaus etechnically if you're a truck hauling anything I think here at least your SUPPOSED to stop not that I think it's really mandatory but, they leave them open like you said so I'll just swing by and have a look see. Also Anabel I've never seen on up close so I didn't know that everyone I've read reviews frmo say its super strong but if it's how you say it is I def don't want my baby in there...

life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self

I saw someone load a Saddlebred in one. This wasn't a real big horse but he would not go in readily until they moved the divider over so he could stand kind of sideways. Even then he was pretty jammed in there.
Also it seemed flimsy.
