I sold our horse trailer over the weekend and am planning to buy a new trailer this week. We are planning to buy a 3 horse, slant load, bumper pull trailer and are comparing an Exiss and a Shadow that are available in our area. I have seen some Exiss trailers, but I don't know much about Shadow trailers. I'd be interested in hearing from someone who owns a Shadow to get your opinion. I also would be interested on your opinion about the importance of an escape door. The Exiss we are looking at does not have one, the Shadow does but, of course is more money.
