I didn't mean anything in those last two paragraphs I wrote, guys... I was just (and still am) upset and was venting and ranting...

I just can't see how that side of my family thinks that the trailer is in fine condition, when it's obviously not...

I saw the picture you posted of the trailer and imo I think you can find something in your price range already usable. Look thru craigs lists for all over the place. I am looking for a inexpensive GN so I am always scanning Craigslist between VA & FL. I see ton's of inexpensive BP's. Good luck, and sorry for the family drama. It's not worth it. Riding and spending time with your horses is to bring calm and peace into your lift.

I agree with the posters who have suggested to just buy your own trailer. I don't know what your budget is, but surely it would not be too expensive to buy an older one.
I got my first trailer for $500. It had a new floor. I painted it, had the wiring redone and got new tires on it. Most of which was paid for by loaning it to family members or friends on occasion.

Look at the bright side. Things happen for a reason and maybe it is best you didn't put any more work in that trailer.
Speed Racer and Red Gate Farm like this.

I agree with the other posters who say to just let this go and find a trailer you can buy outright.

In the pictures you posted of that trailer it looked pretty darn rough. It was going to take more than a few pieces of plywood and some new mats to make it horse safe.

There are two sides to every story, and the truth usually likes somewhere in the middle. I'm sure they have their own version of what's been happening.

My mothers side of the family has a lot of those same issues. My dad likes to remind my sister and I that he only married into the family, we are related by blood....

Best thing to do is minimize your contact with them as much as possible. I have aunts I haven't seen in 10+ years and happy to keep it that way.

Keep your head up family can be tough.
I just bought a used a bp 2 horse for less than 4k. All refurnished inside. Just get a dirt cheap trailer and you can fix up any way you like. They are going for as low as 100$$. You have a any choice really and then you don't have to worry about anything again :)
