Share your thoughts on Calico and Ponderosa and Stidham trailers
I found a 1 year old Calico trailer for sale for an exceptionally good price. It's a 2010 model that was purchased in June of 2011. I haven't gone to see it yet but I've asked lots of questions, got lots of pictures and am going to set up a viewing this week.
I've now found a 2008 Ponderosa 2h bumper pull step up that is also in an acceptable price range. I can't go view it because it's 6+ hours away. I'm asking for more pics (though it looks to be in great condition) and maybe a video before I commit us to a journey. What about those?
Other than the lack of a tack room (It has space for tack, but it's space in front of the horses so I'd have to build a wall or just suck it up or something). I could buy a trailer with a tack or dressing room, BUUUT at this price point it's going to be a much older model. I only have one horse, won't likely get another, and won't likely ever need to haul 2. The only people I currently ever haul with have their own multi-horse trailers.
Both seem like a nice, economical first time trailer. Are there any negatives to these models? Anything that I should look out for or be wary about?
