    Trailer shopping:) Your opinions on these?

    So since we have had the same borrowed trailer for 3 months (we are such bad borrowers and he is just the nicest guy) my family decided its time to search! Here are some that caught my eye your ideas?

    Shoop 2-Horse Bumper Pull TB/WB Trailer for sale in Botetourt, Virginia :: HorseClicks

    1993 Sundowner HorseTrailer for sale in Caroline, Virginia :: HorseClicks
    (I saw some thread about sundowners being unsafe? Is this true?)

    Used Horse Trailer - 1999 Valley Trailers 2H BP stock for sale in Greene, Virginia :: HorseClicks
    (this is kind of big for what we need it for but our truck can handle it so its fine)

    REDUCED 2010 2H BP SLANTLOAD WITH TACK ROOM FOR SALE for sale in Danville city, Virginia :: HorseClicks

    Thanks:)

    What is your budget? I would try to stick to a well made older aluminum one.

    If you have a choice-my preference is a slant-load. The gray one has a nice tack area & looks roomy.

    Tough choices! I like the first best, because it is xw/xt, but am not a fan of ramps, so I'd want to convert to step up. For the price, I'd plan on getting a brake job right away, too. I like the red one, but again would want a brake job. Also, is that a vertical bar going down center at entry, as opposed to being wide open for loading? The last one is decent, but I'm not a fan of slant load.

    I think it depends on what you prefer.... straight/slant, ramp/step up, extra size, etc.

    Of the 4 Id pick the sundowner assuming the paint job was done correctly and the frame isnt rusted Id only go $1800 though.
    Wouldnt touch the ponderosa for more than 2k, they are cheap made and will rust over night.

    They want quite a bit for Ponderosa (and I've heard not so great opinions about the brand). Valley is nice but it's very light (I had one for several years and ended up trading it). I'd say check Sundowner. Make sure to check the floors, lights, and the hitch!

    I like the second one and the slant load. If the money isn't an issue, I would say go with the slant load. It's nice and it's a lot easier to load a slant load than a straight two horse. Also, it's really nice to have a trailer with a tack area, it would totally stink to have to put all that stuff in the back of your truck.
