The Adams doesn't look to bad neither. Perhaps I missed it, but I didn't see the year or the size of it. I know it can be very tricky trying to find a used trailer. When I got my slant, I bought it new after giving up hope of finding a decend used one - there were a few out there, not all that many though, and someone always seemed to get to them before I did.

I believe the Adams is probably bigger then the Trail Et. Hard to judge by pix, though. But it doesn't have the back tack area like the trail Et so it's all open in the back with an upfront dressing/tack area. The Adams is a 2006.

Just asked if the tack area slides over in the back of the Trail Et and she said she thinks so but she's never done it. And the area where the horses walk in and out when the tack area is "opened" is a little bigger then a stall door.

Well that's better - I'd want to make sure that's working as part of the prepurchase exam.

I don't think it slides over just judging from the pix but the opening is about the size of a stall door. She said its more then half of 80 inches. (The trailer is 80 inches wide)

So, I guess you'll be taking a look at it?

Live had plans to see it since Monday but keep going back and fourth because if its too "stuffy" I didn't want it. But, it's kinda hard to tell so I guess I'll have to go look. How hard is it to teach a horse to load in a slant like that? I've never owned one before but my options are kinda slim it's either this one or ones that are beat. And my price range is pretty decent! The market doesn't seem to be too great right now.

Exercising consistency and patience, I'd say it's not hard to teach a horse to load into a slant at all.

The stall widths were about 32''-33'' but the padding makes them seem narrower.

The front stall is pretty narrow so no real stocky horses up there unless they're real good loaders. For my guy, who's a stubborn loader though. I can just leave the divider open and tie him and he'll have all the room. But the second stall is bigger.
