Merhow Trailers, Opinions?

We're considering this trailer. Does anyone have any experience with them?

1993 Merhow VeryLite Horse Trailer

It would be used to haul two Arabs, 15.1 and 16.0.

I have not hear any thing bad about this company, the trailer looks clean ( no rust or dents ). I would ask how old are the tires you may have to change them for new ones other wise I would go for it

ride a draft and see the world differently

Do you think the price is fair? I'm a little weary to be spending almost 6k on a twenty-year old trailer, but if it will last a long time, I will.

6K sounds a bit high for a trailer that old. Even in my overpriced area, 6K would get you a 2005ish model. Also, the ad says the tires were new in 2006 which means they were due to be replaced in 2011. My understanding is tires rot out after 5 years whether used or not. That might be extended since this trailer was stored inside, but I would take a good look at those tires for dry rot.

I haven't heard anything bad about that brand either.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Thanks guys. I think we're going to pass, as we stopped by today and it seemed that the frame was rusted on the bottom. We're going to keep looking.

Just some added info Merhow at least the new ones are very good trailers. Made well, easy pull and really take the horse into consideration. I am not sure about the older models
