Choice of trailers
I mentioned that I'm going to go out and look at a trailer this weekend. One of my instructors put me in touch with the person who's selling it. Now the instructor is interested in buying it herself! She says I can have first pick, and if I don't want this trailer, she will sell me her trailer (if I want it).
Instructor's trailer is a two-horse slant-load with front tack, open stock-type sides (at the top), Trails West Adventure line. Bumper pull, steel, step-up. Walls half padded.
The other trailer is a CM Trailer with windows, two-horse, straight load, two escape doors, front manger, steel, step up. Bumper pull. Described as extra high and extra wide. I'm not sure if the walls are padded.
Instructor would want $3200 for hers, and the other is selling for $3500. I'm a little unsure which one I should be more interested in now. If they were equal in terms of condition, which one would you guys go for and why? My horses are all small.
Also, is it easier to load in a slant trailer? Seems like loading the second horse in the straight load could be a little difficult?
