Ok, so I am obsessed with re-doing this horse trailer. Thought I would share my experience since I have done nothing but go online and read others
She's an '83 Cotner....I think maybe like an old Ultra or Royal. 7ft tall, 6ft wide and 12ft long inside.
We have a friend with welding and trailer rehab experience to give us a guide. Welds look great and the metal is in good shape but cosmetically just unappealing.
Here is our list of to do's.
Rip out floor - DONE
Sand down undercarriage and treat with a rust converter and then paint with rustoleum. I don't know if that's over kill but I'd like to prevent surface rust from coming back as long as possible!
Redo wiring - It functions just fine but some of it travels on top of a cross beam which seems dumb since a horse could bear weight on it and damage it.
Sand and paint interior
New interior light
New kick boards and divider
Sand and paint exterior
Install saddle racks and custom made bench/box in front of trailer.
When I drove it home

The floor, which was surprisingly hard to get out considering it's age!
