Gotcha, Thanks!
You must live in over in the valley

I know! Very handy, so much easier then putting everything in the back of truck, especially during bad weather and having to stop and keeping an eye on it so no one steals anything!

Foal
Have a friend that has a stock combo where the front living area is only the gooseneck and half the width of the trailer. The tack room is on the passangers side of the trailer and has double doors that open completly with 4 saddle racks and hooks along the walls on either end. Its great because you never have to get into your trailer to put your saddles on their racks and it has the most room out of any tack room that I have ever seen.
It does make the living/carpeted area smaller but at least you don't have your saddles in where you sleep smelling the polace up. I think it was a Spirit brand trailer but can't recall off the top of my head. If I get time I will try and find a picture to better describe it.

Have a good one.

I think I seen a couple of those at the Futurity trade show last year! It was on those huge living quarters trailers. But the tack room was more like a closet but it had plenty of room to store everything. When I first seen the double doors I thought it was one of those reverse load trailers that the barrel racers seem to like. Then I opened it up and it was a handy tack room.

While I would prefer to live over in central or eastern Oregon all the jobs are over in the valley so yes, that's where I live. Once my ship comes in (not likely but I hope) I'm for an immediate move over towards Bend.

Anyone volunteering to die while rich and leave me all their money????

Especially given my truck has just 2 doors (so I had to move the passenger seat and drag out a saddle).

BTW, I've seen people installing the water jar in dressing room (to drink as well as to give a bath to the horse after the ride). I think it would be something neat to have too (but I doubt I'll do it - now I just keep a water in a big plastic bucket with lid (bought in Home Depot) in truck bed).

LOL! Sure! The check is in the mail..
I only lived over by Salem for about a month....I hated it.
I don't blame you for wanting to move over there, it is much better! But your right, the jobs are hard to find, or at least it was when I lived there and the cost of living in Bend isn't cheap either.

Those are handy! Our last trailer came with one of those High Country Plastic 20+ gallon tanks that fit in the corner. I usually try to park away from everybody and that usually makes for a walk to find water. So when we sold the last trailer I took it out so we could use it in this trailer!

Well, mines a fine size, BUT, I wish it wasnt carpeting. Theres hay all over the floor. I also wish there was more than a 2 saddle tier saddle rack in it. Its only a two horse slant load but I would like at least a 3 tier saddle rack. I could get a new one as its removable I guess. Theres a little tub on the wall that I wish was bigger, and I also wish that there was something behind the bridles, you have to be careful with the noise! This is my trailer right when we got it before sandblasting and repainting.

That's a cute little trailer! You will have to post a pic of it after it was painted.

Love my trailer and tack room! Added extra saddle blanket bars, an organizer to the door and garment bags for my daughter's show clothing.

Wow that is a lot of stuff in that tack room!

You must have a tip out saddle rack?
I have been shopping for stuff for the tack room because all ours came with was a saddle rack againt the far wall and someone screwed some hooks up for bridles. No blanket bars. Platinum Coach makes a tip out blanket bar. I thought that might be handy since I don't have a tip out saddle rack. It would fold back in against the vertical wall for the nose.

I like the door organizers for the brushes, I will have to get one of those.
Where did you get your cubbys that your hats and helmets are in? I think that would be handy for my polos and boots instead of my Rubbermaid 3 drawer, it takes up a lot of floor space.
