Well we can replace floor boards and have the ability and knowledge to completely replace a floor if needed. I have never heard of a King 2. I keep looking at craigslist but eh not much there right now. Or people way over estimate the value. I can buy a 2h slant bumper pull with front tack brand new for just under 4k so I'm not about to pay 3k for a 20+ year old trailer lol. If I didn't have a car payment I would consider financing a trailer but I'm not having two loans out at once.

No matter what trailer you go to look at, be sure and check it out on web first by typing in "problems with ......" to see what others have found out.

Might also contact any barns in your area too, as they may be trading up, or have a customer that is wanting to sell one.

Horses make me a better person.

I never thought of asking other barns, good idea.

Is there a government website for trailers like there is for cars to register complaints and anything that has gone wrong with them?

Google Horse trailers for sale when I do that there is a site that comes up at the top you can put in your search what you price is and they will show you those trailers.See what you can find if you do have someone that can fix it up there is not much on a steel trailer that can not be fixed and paint is not that high.
