Thanks all. Hubby is out that way today for work, so he's going to have a look to see if it's structurally sound. Because if not, then there's no point in going further. @horselovinguy
, I get what you're saying. When we were students, we used to repaint our rusty old cars and even did some body work. It was hard work, but we did a pretty good job. And this is the interior, so in my mind, it doesn't have to look perfect. But we do want to remove the rust and I am aware that it takes a few steps.
It is metal. Hubby bought a new truck though, with a much better towing capacity (and a full factory-installed tow system) so weight isn't an issue.
It is a regular sized trailer - not X-tall or X-wide. I'm a little concerned about that. Harley is just a little guy, but he's used to a large trailer. However, there's no way I can afford a larger trailer right now. A friend has offered me her trailer for the summer but it's going to be the same size. The trailer I was renting last summer is very nice, but I'm really tired of driving half an hour to go pick it up, hauling it home, loading Harley, hauling an hour away to the lesson, back home, then bringing it back the same day. I want a trailer that can sit in my yard. So it's either something like this, or the one my friend offered me for the summer. They're pretty similar in terms of size, but one I have to rent, the other is mine to keep.
Should I just tell Harley to suck it up and load? He's loaded in small trailers before, he just puts up a fuss, but we've discovered that once we put our foot down and use a lunge line on his rear if necessary, he'll load and be quiet about it. He's not the type that gets worked up in a trailer. I wish I could give him all the comfort he deserves, but financially, that's just not realistic right now. He's 14.2, he should be able to live with a regular sized trailer right?
Anyway, like I said, first we will assess whether it's structurally sound. Then we'll decide what to do. I've asked hubby to measure the inside height.
