Hey all, jut wanted to share my newest project! This is an older (2000 I think) valley two horse, bumper pull trailer that we are redoing. I don't really know that much (okay, nothing) about this kinda stuff, so we are having someone do everything for us. When we bought it in September, we took it to a car place where they went over it with a fine toothed comb, redid the wiring and made it completely structurally sound. But now we have enough money to make it pretty! :)
So, paint colors: I was initially thinking light gray/silver with a navy or hunter pin stripe. However, the person painting it said that it will probably be less expensive to do it in a dark color like navy because they would be able to spot sand it and paint over everything else. Something about how if you sand the whole thing you have to be careful about screws and fittings and such? Make sense? Would painting it a dark color make it too hot in the summer?
The other thing, it is a warmblood size, which means its taller and wider and longer than other standard sizes (right?). So, it has quite a wide front walkway in front of where the horses go (where their heads are) so we were thinking: would it be possible/safe to have a drop down saddle rack welded into the front?

Also, is there anything else I should consider while we redo it? As I said before, we had them go over it and look at floor, tires, wiring etc.
P.s be nice! these are all potential ideas that's all, and as I said I don't know diddly squat about this kinda stuff!
