I found a trailer at last...

You know when I've been quiet I have been up to something, well after a 1000 mile round trip, should of been 2 days, but took 3 days due to weather delays I am home with my new trailer, well when I say new, I mean old, but for $3000 I am well happy.

Will get some more pics soon, but here is the raw footage.

So she is basically sound where she needs to be, 3 horse slant, rear tack, space to sleep in the neck, and plenty storage up front there. It has been insulated, but I need to find a way of lining it on the inside, something smooth, lightweight and light in color, any ideas?

There are a few rust areas to be dealt with, but I am totally delighted. OH, lol, the gear in the tack is from the old owner, I'll get better pics soon.

LOL, buying new trailers is always fun! even when they aren't showroom new! HAHA -addicted- enjoy your new ride!!! If I had a truck instead of a suburban I would buy a gooseneck in an instant X-D.

life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self

I would look into getting the rust dealt with ASAP. And also making sure boards and frame is in good shape too as I would be worried about that.

Once that is done, you could look into using the paneling like is used in bathrooms, that wipes down easily. I've seen trailers done like that in the dressing room area and was light and easy to keep tidy. Also might consider carpet on walls? Or even the type of lining used in pickup beds, as it comes in many colors.

There is a man in KC area that has a company called Shelter Defense, who puts that type of thing on the roofs of horse trailers, says it insulates well, and lasts. Haven't seen it in person, but have seen the comments of people who had him do it to their horse trailers and they were pleased.

Can't wait to see what will look like when fixed up.

Horses make me a better person.

The rust wont get much worse right now, we don't actually use salt up here much to much snow. She is very sound where it matters, so is good to haul. 99% of the overhaul is cosmetic.

Laid up being a sick person now, but will get some more inside pics for you when I can. The truckbed stuff has possibilities for sure.

Here we go, eventually fit enough to go outside today, and took some pics of the trailer, love the careful way it has been parked, practice loading will be so easy

Rear Tack

Inside, got to see if we can make another divider, only have one so far.

And the front area

Love the blanket box/seat/step to get into the neck

A lot of potential, this is going to be great.

I too am very happy for you. We have here in the states Lowe's and I don't know what you have there. In Lowe's they have in the back where you find paneling they sheets of fiber glass that are very thin. You can cut them out and use liquid nail to glue them on the walls looks good and you can just wash it down when it gets dirty. Hope this helps. Many Happy Trails
