    OP, you are right about rating. We didn't check that, that is where companies cut corners, but we didn't have a problem towing 3 horses 13 hours, just when we bought a horse at an event and were towing FOUR horses on the way back. We had already put a lot of miles on this trailer.
    Seriously, though, you need a spare tire. You never know when you will pick up a nail or something in a construction area and blow a tire. AAA doesn't have the resources to help you with this, although I'm thinking about switching over the you S Rider.

    I have a knack for seeing things from a glass half full standpoint vs a half empty standpoint. Some people see a turd, I can see potential. ;)

    I agree on a spare. I have one from my recently sold 5th wheel sitting in my garage that will fit the trailer, and there was actually one in the pics as well albeit the rubber is probably shot on it as well.

    The jury is still out on whether we are going to see it on Saturday or not I am waiting to hear back from the owner.

    You obviously have your mind made up about it and had your mind made up when you posted.

    I personally would look elsewhere but if you think you can pull it off than more power to you. I don't like anything about its design but that's just me.

    Good luck, it sounds like you are highly knowledgeable. I just bought a fixer upper too. I thought Michigan was the rust capital!

    Hope that it comes out of the ground in one piece, this weekend quick freeze is nasty.

    Indeed. ;)

    We didn't end up going to even see it - the owner never contacted me back so I didn't even had an address to drive to. No idea why, but at this point I think I'm going to leave it be for a few weeks and maybe try again after Christmas. If it's still sitting there I could have more negotiation power on just throwing an offer and see what happens.

    We're on vacation for a few weeks until just before Christmas and then I have most of the week between Christmas and New Years off, so I'll have some time to putter with things.

    It's about 3 hours from me, so I'm going prepared to haul it home if she accepts on the spot.

    That is not a trailer that I personally would not entertain. I don't know if this is been covered because I have not read every page but it does not have any ventilation or windows which is a major concern besides all other issues
