Trailer prices vary a lot from area to area quite a bit so it's hard to say if it is a good price or not. All you can do is peruse CL, trailer ads, etc. to see how it compares.

I like the second one. You said that you will really only be taking 2 horses at a time. That is less gas with a smaller trailer as well. Also the first picture shows pictures of the trailer with bedding in it, like they are trying to cover something up. The second on shows nothing covered up.

Ok, as it stands I just called the lady with the 3 horse trailer this morning and offered $6000 if I like it when I look at it, otherwise I may have to drimve literally 5-6 hours to view the 2nd trailer. If She refuses the offer I might just wait until a nice trailer comes up for sale around here again.

go to www.horsetrailerworld.com and do a search for similar trailers in states close to it and you can get a good feel for pricing. the site has tons of very knowledgable people on it from professional haulers, to people that have built their own LQ, etc

She accepted my offer at $6000. The trailer was immaculate when I got there they had just used it last weekend and everything was spotless! Checked the floors and cross beams all perfect. Lights are good. Tires too. I called around earlier to check on the 2nd trailer and it had been sold already.

I hope you grabbed it!

You will never regret having that extra stall. You will find someone to hitch along with you and share the gas three ways!

I can't even count the miles that I have pulled a three horse bumper pull trailer. Many of the miles were in a half ton truck and I never had any problems. If you have a decent truck and drive with your brain engaged then a three or four horse bumperpull is not a problem.
