    I actually saw this trailer. Horse Trailer World - Huge Selection of Horse Trailers, Cargo, Trucks I liked it too. It seemed like a lot of rust, which I thought was a problem, and therefore it didn't seen to be worth 2.5k...but what does everybody else think about that one?
    Mine is a 95 model it looks bad but is still safe. But better than a 30yro trailer... Mine also has the same rust issues but again a good screw diver test will do, I plan on having mine redone But 2500 is way to much maybe 1k at the most....


    My problem is that my gelding is a draft cross and 16.3hh - most stock trailers are under 7' and he needs one that big. My spending budget for a trailer is unfortunately limited to $2000. Also, I have to have one by the end of the month, because we have a show coming up on July 3rd that I'm desperate to go to, and can't otherwise find a ride for...not at all for lack of trying...
    But is a show worth your horses life that you absolutly have to have a trailer and one that most people say stay away from it. In the long run you won't regret it..not busting on ya just saying,,,,

    I'm a little late to the party but I saw the identical trailer go through the auction last Saturday nite. It was all white, had stall mats, and it was totally restored. It sold for $625.00 which was a little low but for under $2,500 in our area, you can do get a TB size trailer and I've seen some in aluminum sell for that.

    Hmmm, those measurements seem really small, especially the escape door. Just something to think about :)

    With 28" wide stalls, you'll need a pretty thin horse. Our Paint mares would never fit in there (our 2 horse stock trailer is 6' wide inside (2x36") and the divider takes about 2").
    I thought the stalls looked narrow too.

    The floor scares me.... really check out that floor. Your horse sounds like a heavy fella, it's got to be sturdy! I wouldn't buy it. Plus, straight narrow loads scare me, too. I'd not touch it with a 10ft pole........

    I know you want to make it to the show, but I agree with minigiz, safety is 100x more important than any show.

    I would NEVER sacrifice my horse's safety for a show, and I absolutely resent that implication. And I won't buy a trailer that I (or anyone whose opinion I can get) considers to be unsafe.

    And you were too busting on me - otherwise, what would be the point of saying something like that?

    Look I don't want to get into an argument with you. Your the one that needs a trailer to go to a show so bad. People including me gave you our opinions. You would never sacrifice your horses safety but yet your determined to have a trailer so you can go to a show in July but only have x amount of money to buy one. So go buy a cheap trailer. Pretty is as pretty does....But when your horses foot goes through a floor it won't be so pretty....Sorry to offend you but that's life and I have seen a lot in my day....

    What do we think of this one?
    Horse Trailer World - Huge Selection of Horse Trailers, Cargo, Trucks

    The rust near the floors and on the bottom of the frame at back bothers me, but maybe it shouldn't. You guys have to tell me what I think about that. LOL.

    The photos that show the bottom of the doors, frame, etc show not only rust, but metal eaten away by rust. Plus it does look like the rust goes into the sides by the floor of the inside. The problem is, once rust is there, it won't go away unless you replace the metal. Priming and painting will make it look better, but the weakness is still there.
    I would keep looking .

    I agree with wyoming, the rust at the back door is a critical area anytime you see frame tubing rusted through run..and along the base of the wall isn't good. ....
