That is a step up.

We had a ramp type one time and hated it, go with a step up.

That is a good price, I know its 10 years old, but lacking a wreck or something, Aluminum Trails are the way to go.

A run of the mill new steel trails without windows, all the amenities is 6,000.00.

I would guess a new Sundowner like that is what? 14,000.00?

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

As it has been posted by everyone else, it is a step up. I also prefer trailers with a ramp but either one is ok. It's also a matter of what the horse is used to. I like the ramp because it eliminates them trying to guess where to step down when unloading backwards. With the ramp I find its less stressful as they know the ramp's there and they don't have to go thru that.
My ultimate dream trailer would be one where you unload coming out the side which completely removes coming out backwards.

Trailer shopping can be hard because so many different factors come into play.
Good Luck with your search

Its a very nice trailer. the step height shouldn't be to bad. if you prefer a ramp one can easily be added to that trailer at a sundowner dealer. i myself prefer a ramp as they have less chance of sliding under the trailer when they exit.

I've had both ramp and step up and like both for different reasons. Sundowner makes a nice trailer, its what we have now. They seem to hold their value fairly well.
