Tips for Buying a Horse Trailer

You’re thinking about buying a trailer. But what should you consider before you commit? Here’s a quick guide on what you should bear in mind, and look for, before saying, “I’ll take it!”

What to Ask Yourself

First things first —what do you want to haul? Besides horses or livestock, what else do you want to use the trailer for? Equipment? Think about what capacity/size you need. Do you want living quarters with the trailer? What size trailer can you safely tow with your tow vehicle? Speaking of your tow vehicle, should you consider upgrading it?

To Upgrade or Not

Perhaps you’re happy with your current trailer, but need to make it more user friendly, or you want to add a few more bells and whistles. If you’re considering a trailer upgrade, we suggest you write down a list of all the things you like about your trailer. Also note those things you’d like to change, like color, size, features or amenities.

We’ve often found that customers have had a change of “needs.” They need to get a larger trailer to haul more animals, they need more room in the living quarters, or they need a second, smaller trailer to go to local activities. On the other hand, customers also look to upgrade because they want new options or features, or simply the latest and greatest. Finding the right balance of “needs and wants” is the way to go when considering an upgrade.
