Trailer height? Do they come in different sizes?

This is probably a dumb question, but I am new to trailers. An aquaintance of mine has a trailer he wants to sell me very cheap as he no longer has horses. Before I go look at it- do they come in different heights? My horses are both 15.3hh - so not huge draft horses, but not little guys either. How tall does the room inside the trailer need to be? Or do they all come in one-size-fits-all? I am just looking for cheap, and basic...

They definitely come in different heights. I believe the 'standard' is 6'6 (might be incorrect). I have Warmbloods (17-18hh) so I have an oversized 7' but my new horse doesn't fit, so I'm looking for a 7'6:(

We had probably a small standard straight load as our first trailer, then we got a slightly wider standard slant load, and now my BO has an 8' tall oversize trailer to fit probably any horse she'll ever come across plus some she probably won't.

So any guesses what height a 15.3 horse would fit in? Happily? Would a standard one fit? I should ask my BO what size hers was ( she trailered them for us...)... Can just see me getting it home and having my guys say " no way we are going in THERE!"

Yes, trailers come in different sizes. It woud almost be silly for them not to considering the varies heights and breeds of horses that the worlds have. They also can come in different widths as well, but laws in different states/provinces regulate how wide the trailer can be for the road.

On that note, I think you would be fine with the standard size, but if you want extra clearance for sometime in the future or maybe a friends tall horse when going somewhere, get the next height up.
