I would never be able to live without my tack room in my trailer. I live out of there on show days. Also, I like having a divider, even though my new trailer doesnt have one.

I can't live without a Brenderup because I can't tow any other with my Rav4. I would love to have a small LQ Trailer but until Honey Darling Precious decides we need one we won't have it!

Mangers for storage... Gooseneck trailer and slant load......

Tack storage.... Lights on the inside, in the mangers, on the outside of the trailer...

Lol i'm like Kevin. I don't have a horse trailer so even just a stock trailer would be ok with me! Although I do prefer matts in my trailers so that's a must.

My trailer is *mostly* what I want. It is a 1997 Logan Coach "Ranger". I got it used last year. It weighs 2800lbs & tows great behind the 1/2 ton truck I had at the time.

*Step up (never worry about uneven ground, etc)
*Slant load (extra space & when I open the door, I can see their HEAD, not their... uh... yeah. Lol)
*Full walk in tack room with 4 saddle racks (the door locks too & has a sliding window
*Matted floors
*matted walls
*Light color (white) helps deflect heat & doesn't look like a big dark scary hole that will eat my babies
*angled front, so it cuts through the wind better than a flat faced trailer
*It's tall. Taller than the trailer I used to borrow! Lol
*very large inside. With the divider open, I can haul 3 horses (15hh, 14.2hh & 14hh)
*Light in the horse area & one in the tack room

What I wish was different:
*Mine is a 2 horse. I want a 3 or 4 (I own 3 horses)
*Want drop down windows, or at least windows that open/close. (gets wet inside when it rains)

I love that it does NOT have mangers. I remember as a kid, my mom's 15hh paint got her leg stuck in the manger of our older 2 horse straight load. The horse used to "be pretty" by curling her leg when she wanted a treat... and somehow she got her leg UP above her chest into the feeder.

Here is my trailer:

It really depends. For a long time I had a monstreous TB that I hauled all the time. He was an RCMP horse that was retired and he was just shy of 17hh and BIG. We had bought him a staight haul 7+ tall trailer with lots of padding, removable devider, vents and a ramp. It was a beautiful trailer, but it was also HUGE, and because it was straight haul, the weight in the trailer was really not distributed evenly because he always had to be loaded on the left side.

My first concern is always the height of the trailer. Everything else you can adjust to, but the height can be a big issue if your horse is of modest size.
