1988 Trail-et make over !
125 Attachment(s)
So back in April I bought a 1988 Trail-et 2 horse gooseneck with a dressing room. It was in pretty decent shape considering its age and how much its been through. There were two spots on the side that had rot which we cut out and welded new steel plates. That was the only serious rot the trailer had. Everything else was basic maintenance things but we just ended up redoing it all.

The frame was POR'd, new inside paint job, new floors, mats, etc. there's too much to list. I still have to pad the inside, paint the stripes on the outside, buy two more brakes and tires. She still has a long way to go. ☺

Without further adue here are "before" and "during" pictures.

I love makeovers - especially someone else's as they are a tremendous amount of work. Good job.

How do you find lifting the ramp, by the way? My first trailer had a ramp on it but the darn thing kept getting heavier as I got older so trailer number two is a step up.

This ramp is super heavy. It's a total PIA. It doesn't help that the previous owners put a 2 inch lift in the trailer so its taller too! I'm only 5'3
So it's interesting watching me lift it alone. We're still fixing it up but the horse part is basically finished besides a few minor things. I will keep posting pictures. The first "before" picture of the whole outside of the trailer has red pin striping. We couldn't match the red so its being painted black. Thankfully I have an awesome father who has busted his butt to fix this trailer for me. Love him! :)
