As he goes in, you have less of a problem than those horses who do not go in.
Do it daily, as often as you can, feed him in there and build up from that. When he is comfortable being fed, hayed in there, move him up to a 1 min ride and just build up. It is not legal, but I have ridden in the trailer before in the area that is in front of the bars, talk to him, feed him, just give him some time as we do with every other training issue and he should get over it.
