Well hubby surprised me with a catch trailer! We both have been wanting one, I have since it would be easier to haul, more fuel efficient. I normally haul by myself and only a couple of horses! We have been looking and could only find 1 axle and he insists on2 axles. I agree that way if you have a blow out, you still have some control! We just put our 4 horse slant trailer for sale, we haven't hauled with it in over a year. (our dream is to have a horse trailer with living quarters for 4! But man they are so expensive-so that will have to wait & you can't haul cows in them!!!) For just one horse it is just too heavy! I have been hauling in our 30" stock trailer. When we are day working we have to haul the stock trailer for the cows! But for one horse or even two it is still too big. Our friend bought this trailer brand new in February and when we first saw it we told him we wanted first dibs on it when he wanted to sell it. *he is notorious for buying things and not keeping them very long!* We were shocked when he called Tuesday night and said he was selling the trailer. He has only hauled horses in it twice and no cows! He priced it too us and told us he would give us 2 days to think about it. We talked about it that night and hubby said I'm getting you that trailer, period end of discussion. It will diffidently get used and we will get our moneys worth out of it. I washed it up this afternoon and will haul with it tomorrow! This cowgirl doesn't want jewelry, clothes or other girlie things~give me something I can use with my horses and I'm so very happy! Thanks again Honey, you so rock!
