I have been looking for a horse trailer for a while now. I have looked on all the standard sites, now it istime to try some new options. I need to expand, If I tell you what I am looking for in a horse trailer will you all keep an eye out, and send me any ads you see in your local area.
Thanks.

Looking for a trailer in the midwest, within 6 hours driving of St Louis.

4 horse slant with a ramp

Or

2 plus 1

Better brand.. sundowner, keifer built, featherlite, four star, etc
Ramp is a must
Good to excellent shape
All aluminum
Floor not longer than 24'

Under $20,000

I do have a 1999, 3 horse, featherlite for sale or trade.


Incidentals: nice but not necessary

It's hard to find a trailer around here it seems. I looked for mine for months. Have you checked out Cowtown USA in Cuba, MO? It's where I finally found my 4-star 2 horse. They have all kinds of used trailers, many quite nice.

Yes, I check cowtown regularly, it seems the 4 horse slants with a ramp are hard to come by. I was hoping maybe there might be some more on the market this time of the year.

Ok, thanks for making me jealous!! You bought my trailer!
If you see another one let me know, my sister lives in Manassas so I could visit her at the same time I pick up the trailer, HA HA.


I know they are out there. Last winter I almost drove to VA for a sundowner, 2 plus 1, but it was an aluminum frame and I want all aluminum. It was super nice for $15000.
I am looking to buy my last trailer.

I went shopping with a friend in my area about this time last year. We went everywhere we could within a few hours from here and several places that make them on site that are close by.
We had a really hard time finding what my friend needed and were suprised to hear over and over again that this time to right on through winter is actually a hard time time to find a good trailer because people buy trailers more in the off seasn.

Just my luck, my whole theory is blown.

I had a surprisingly hard time finding my trailer, too. I ended up buying a new trailer that met my requirements, even though I had hoped to buy a slightly fancier trailer used.

Facebook is awesome for this stuff. There are a lot of 'Horse trailers for sale in (enter state here)' groups. I suggest joining some trailer groups and you could probably find what you're looking for in a heartbeat.
