Looking for a new trailer.

As my title says I am looking for a new trailer. I need something bigger than a 2 horse straight load. I came across this one and it looks like its in pretty good shape. I emailed enquiring about it. It is a 16 ft Ponderosa gooseneck. Here is the little bit of information I have been able to get out of them so far. "The trailer is 6' wide and about 6'3" tall. The tires are used with just normal wear and tear, they aren't too bad. The lights and brakes definitely work. We have put a lot of time into this trailer refurbishing it!" They are only asking $3950 for it. What do you guys think? Is it worth that price?

A 6'3 trailer really limits what you can put in there. However if you never plan on hauling anything over 15 or 15.2hh I would hook it up to your truck to make sure it hauls level.
I've never heard of the brand so I can't speak for quality but the price sounds reasonable.

Agreed - *I* would not be happy with the height, even if your horses now are w/in reasonable height because you never know what you may have in the future -- better to have something taller than you need than to find yourself with a trailer that no longer fits your needs.

Thank you both for pointing out the height issue. I did not even think about that fact. Not just for the horses but for me as well. Being 6'2" tall, I will be ducking in there as well. Good thing I am in no hurry to get a new trailer. Time to keep searching. :)
