Have you checked out Eclipse Trailer's website? They're near Columbus but have a dealer called Diamond D trailer sales near Ravenna. I just ordered a brand new all aluminum 2-horse slant BP trailer from them for under $7k!! They're built pretty well from what I've heard too :)

If you're going for new though, get it straight from Eclipse and just do the 2 1/2 hr drive down there to pick it up, they'll give you a much better deal than any trailer lot will! ;)

Thank you, I'll check out the site!

Edit: Hmm, do they make goosenecks? If we're buying new, we were going to try to find a 4-horse.

Although I don't know if they make 4 horse trailers, may just be 2 and 3 horse :/ But check it out anyway!

If you can't find one in time for the hunter paces and mini trials to start, you could always hitch a ride with me and Sandie! ;) Our trailer will be here in 4 short weeks!!! (that is, only IF you horse is NOT a trailer destroyer!!) ;)

Thanks for the offer! I might have to take you up on that; Excel's very calm about being trailered . We've found a few around here that might work, a 3horse Exiss with dressing room for 11k, and a 4horse Featherlite without DR for 10k, but we're undecided right now.

Good to hear :) So is Sandie - she loads herself right up and has never pushed on, kicked, pawed at, or chewed on anyone's trailer that she's been in...even if you leave her in there for awhile. So I figured I could afford new with no consequences from her ;)

My guys aren't quite at the point of loading themselves, LOL. No trailer kickers or biters, though
