Your Rig =)

I wanna see what everyone's trailers, or maybe you borrow one from a friend. What does it look like? How well do you like it?

You can also post a picture of your dream trailer, lol.

I will go first, this is mine. We got it for 800 bucks. Replaced the floor a couple years ago. It's taller than a lot of stock and horse trailers so is very nice and roomy =)


I have a thing for bright red painted trailers. I want to get this one repainted so bad lol.

We drove this heap around for a year before I finally got around to painting it. It's just a cosmetic disgrace, the flooring is brand new and the frame is solid, lights work. Needs new tires, but I'm also hoping to sell it because I HATE it. It's so small and cramped, our horses detest it and the 15hh+ ones barely fit in it.


It's like redneck patchwork...


Tada!



My dream trailer is a big open 4-horse stock trailer. Nothing fancy, and horses love it:


Perfect!

It's a very nice color Macabre, guranteed one of a kind! Lol I love your dream trailer as well. It is perfect, mine needs a tack room, lol.

Wyominggrandma and Mingiz and WickedNag, you guys have very amazing, fancy trailers! I would kill for one of those, Lol.

Faye, I have never seen anything like that in my life. Lol It's a motorhome for horses! I can see it having it's uses, it's just wierd to think about. But trailers must seem useless over there if you guys have one vehicle for everything, lol.

We have trailers as well. However the huge ones like you have are not road legal over here and if the whole rig (car, trailer and horses and all gear) weighs over 3.5 tons then you need a articulated lorry liscence to drive it.
Also even if the huge trailers were road legal, you'd never get them up the country lanes.

The most common trailer over here is the Ifor williams or ones similar.

The largest trailer you can get is the Equitrek which is a 2 horse, rear facing with a very very small living


Oakley horse boxes cost more then most houses, in the region of 120000 (so nearly $200000). My little lorry cost no where near that and I bought it second hand.

It is more fuel efficient for us to run a lorry rather then a 4x4 and trailer. My lorry only has a 2.5 litre engine but It cruises very happily at 60mph (the legal limit over here). Fuel at the moment for diesel in the uk is around 1.20 per litre, which is $1.92. You only have to run the lorry when you are using it, running a 4x4 round everyday would be extremely expensive.

We don't have the trailer anymore, but this was what I used to have. F-350 and a stock trailer.





As for my perfect trailer... the one with the living quarters that Minqiz posted looks pretty sweet!
