So I'm ordering a brand new 2011 Eclipse 2-horse slant load YAY!!! Soooo excited! BUT the model I want is the smaller-ish one, for $6,995...you can get an extended version for about $2k more, but I'd rather not spend that! My mare is only 14.1 so she'd be fine in the smaller one, but others I am trailering to shows WITH me have larger horses (like 15.2-16).
So my question is...would they be able to fit in the smaller one? Here are the dimensions..the longer one is about 4' longer.
Yeah all the reviews I read were very positive! I did see a person on another forum comment about the welding not looking as pretty as it should but nothing about it changing the structural integrity. Posted via Mobile Device
I can tell you I Just recently purchased one and I love it. Mine it the straight load but my horse has at least a foot behind his butt and a couple feet above his head. And he's a 16 hand TB. ONly thing I don't like is it doesnt have a tack room which I opted out of because they were more expensive. But it does have a big area in front of my horse where the escape door is and there are saddle racks and bridle hooks there. At first I thought that would be dangerous but we did a test run with no horse and put all the tack in there and nothing slides. THis is the trailer I have Eclipse Aluminum Trailers 2011 2 Horse Trailer Horse Trailer for sale at Cox Trailer Sales, Inc.
I've been looking at that same trailer and my concern is that my beyond mouthy 4yr old would spend the trailer ride munching on my saddle. Is there enough space that the horses can't get to the tack? I'd love to go cheaper but it's not cheaper if my tack is destroyed on the trip.
