horse trailer? please help

I wasn't sure what section to put this thread on, sorry. What I was wondering is, where to look for a CHEAP, used horse trailer! I only want a 1, or 2 horse trailer. I'm not sure, do they only have the simple hitch? well, thats what I'd like, anyhow. Also is there anywhere you can rent or lease a trailer, and drive yourself? Yeah I know, I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to trailers . I was always able to borrow my boss's before, but I no longer work there. Please help me out!!!

Check auction sales in your area classifieds of course and local dealers usually have used trailers for sale. I found mine through horsetrailerworld.com Don't rule out stock trailers they are usually less expensive than some horse trailers. Make sure you pull the mats and check the floors of any you look at. Thats the first place they start to rot.
Sorry forgot to add that yes most do have a plain ball hitch on a bumper pull. Mine has a weight ditribution hitch but its a large bp
Make sure your vehicle can pull the weight of what you are looking at and the ball size is correct. There are some places that do rent trailers, check local trailer dealers.

we found ours by chance. I was looking through the classifieds and there it was. We werent even in the market for a trailer... but at $1000. we didnt want to pass it up just in case. Thank god we got it because this past weekend we took it on an 1800 mile round trip drive to KY to pick up my horse. LOL

So anyway, just check your classifieds. Always best to get a two horse trailer for more room, IMHO.

I dont know of any place that lets you rent them though. Sorry.
Oh! Check Horsetopia.com classifieds too. I will keep an eye out, if I see any ads, I will post them here for you.

Good luck

craigslist.org occasionally has horse trailers, on the right hand side pick your state and then your city.
