So most of you know my story. Got a trailer last year and subsequently found out that my horse is terrified of getting into it when it has the divider in it. He gets into every other trailer on the planet no problem, so I've been trailer shopping. I had agreed with myself that I would only do an even trade in terms of money. So far I have no found a trailer that fits the bill.
What I did find was a 2004 Hawk that is only $1,000 more than what I can get for mine. However, it needs new tires which will be another $600 and it's about $500 to register it, so that brings it to $2,100 more than I was planning on spending. I can sort of afford it, but am a bit cautious about dipping into my reserves to do it. That being said, it is a nice trailer and used Hawks don't come up for sale often. Horse goes fine in his current trailer as long as he's riding stock style, so I don't technically need a trailer this instant. This is very much a want, not so much a need, although I would welcome the opportunity to be able to haul two horses and get gas money in return.
What would you do?
