So I am looking at this trailer. What do you think? This is the ad from craigslist that has the photos but I have atatched 2 pics.

Great condition, good floors, good tires and spare tire, rubber mats, electrical is good, manger, two saddle rack with small storage area, nd new paint, and rust protection (underneath and in wheel wells) done last year.
Step up trailer, have used to haul two large horses (both 16 hands QH, TW), and center divider is removal so the trailer can be used as a box stall.

Looks like a really nice, well cared for trailer. Stock combo?

Something looks odd about how the rear of the trailer is closer to the tires that the front tires. I think that may be close to new price possibly.

I am guessing that it has a partician in the middle. Here is a photo

There's nothing wrong with the back of the trailer, it's just a smaller trailer with a front storage area.

Yes, the price is close to new, but it appears to be in good shape.

It's a stock combo, since the partition can be taken out to make one big area, and there's no steel bar separating the back of the trailer. My trailer has a steel bar running from the top of the trailer to the bottom. Next trailer I buy isn't going to have that.

Ahh. Do you think I should get it?

It's a nice trailer and was just repainted and the undercarriage coated with no-rust, so if you like it and it shows well, I don't see why not. You are going to see it first, right?

The fact the the back of the trailer is lower is because that hitch need more "drop". If that is your truck it is hitched to, you need to get a drop hitch to make it ride dead level. Having that "uphill" slant is hard on the horses.

That is a fairly high price for a trailer on its second coat of paint. But, if it suits you, it is just right!

Paint & undercoating can hide a lot of rust, for a while.
Take it to a mechanic & have it checked out, especially the underside.
