Sorry, but I'm not selling it; I just use it without the dividers and with the rear tack folded.
But if you were in the area, I know of a place that sells all sorts just like it for <$1,500-ish.

My 3 horse slant does not have the rear tack compartment and I don't want one there either, too confining. You should check how tall/wide your trailer is. Mine is 7' tall, 6 1/2' wide and comfortably fits 3 average-sized horses. I love my trailer but need a new one because it is not wide enough for my 17.3 draft cross. I can only haul 2 horses when I take him. I give the regular horse the front stall and then my big guy gets the back 2 stalls.
Hope you find something you want.
Really? I've never heard of that study.
I think my trailer is a little over 7' tall, because one of our stocks is 7' and 2-Pak's ears brush the ceiling, but in the slant, they don't. I'm not sure how wide, though... maybe 6'. Not wide enough for 2-Pak to comfortably turn around in.
And I'm not really in the market for a new trailer (unless, of course, the perfect one falls into my lap for way-cheap.
), since we have three trailers as it is. I usually just use a different trailer depending on which horses I'm hauling.
