    Exiss Trailers?

    Who has one? Do you like it? Hate it? Regret it?

    I'm looking for a 4H slant. Gooseneck. Dressing room. All Aluminum.

    I really am preferring the look of Exiss to many of the others. I also seen a friends that's 12 years old. It is in amazing shape and they haul heavily every year. If I didn't know better I'd guess it was 3 years old.

    I've only ever driven a bumper pull. How hard is it to make the switch? What type of hookup for the truck will we need?

    I have a Chevy 2500HD Vortec. Is it going to have any difficulty pulling this large of a trailer? I don't think it will since we used to have a huge 4 place enclosed snowmobile trailer.

    Financing...I've heard you can finance trailers for a LONG time. Is this true? I doubt I'll be paying less then $25,000 for what I'm looking for.

    I can only speak to their BP's-my BO has had one for about 5 years, and as you say, looks brand new. However-we both prefer the way my heavier steel tows. Much more stable.

    My dream trailer…..JAMCO. They are gorgeous extremely well built aluminum. But-pricey, and they are very few dealers.

    JAMCO's are nice. Actually there is a dealer only about 40 minutes from me.

    But, I'm having a hard time finding dealers near me. For a trailer that isn't outrageously priced anyway. Most are 2+ hours away. Which I don't mind driving, but I'm coming to find out, very few dealers actually have trailers in stock. *scratches head*

    My daughter only had hauled bumper pulls before, then she just bought a gooseneck, she said it's easier to maneuver and back up. Her trailer is a brand new Bison, 3 horse with living quarters and pull outs. She tows with a Ford diesel one ton, long box.

    I have had 2 Exiss trailers The first one was a 96 3h with 4ft dr. Used it for 6 years without a problem.
    I now have an all aluminum 03 Event 3h with 8ft LQ. I have put many miles on this trailer and I have never had any issues with the trailer it self. I have had to replace the fridge and AC unit in it. I financed mine through my credit union and at the time you could go 7 yrs. They also hold their value. I could almost get back what I paid for it if I decided to sell it. I have heard that the Event is a better model than the sport.

    I don't know if it holds true for horse trailers as in camping trailers...
    But...

    If you have a bathroom, stove {cooking} built in I think it can be covered under a 2nd home loan...think motor home/camping trailer...

    So, if living quarters and horse trailer together why should that be any different...they are living arrangements for humans...there was no limitation on size in length to my knowledge...

    That gives a tax write-off if a "mortgage" loan....

    Also to add When I financed mine (used) Since there isn't a blue book on horse trailers. I had to get comparative prices on it. But the bank ended up using a blue book on Campers as a comparison value on it. Yes you can claim as a second home. But only if it's financed. Mine is paid for and I couldn't claim it this year.

    I have a 4h slant exiss with dressing room. Mine is 10yrs old and still looks brand new. A gooseneck is easier to back than a bumper pull, but sometimes I wish I just had a small 2 horse BP for ease of getting in and put of small spots and not being able to park on the road alongside a trail head as easy. Instead I have to find a decent parking spot because the trailer is HUGE!!!
