I have a two horse straigt load and love it
Its the same width as my truck and hauls awesome
The size can be deceiving, like I said my trailer is as wide as our Nissan Titan and my AQHA mare and my friends 16.2hh Percheron Mare can fit in there and still have wiggle room.
One thing done differently is that the horses walk in there alone, you don't walk in there with them.
It took me about 3 hours to train my paint for this and 4 hrs for my mare, but now I haul them all over
They just walk in, you close the door, then walk around and hook their face to the trailer tie, done.
Also, my vet said that although alot of horses don't like loading into straight loads, it is easier for the horse, becuase they are standing and balancing straight forward with the motion of the vehical, not sideways
Even though I wish I could buy one of those new three horse slants
I hold positive feelings towards my old straight load.
