I am pretty smitten with the Hawk made Balanced Ride trailers but my friend just got a used Eby and she says it is by far the best trailer she has ever owned, even though it is used. This trailer needs to be my last, so I want the BEST MADE trailer. Are Eby's really .....all that? You know, made better than all the others?

I'd say yes. Eby also makes trailer for the 18-wheelers. Their trailers have things that a road proven. If your wallet can stomach the payment, I doubt you'll have any regrets.

I would say yes also, I really wanted one, but no dealers in my area, and for a few dollars less I got a Shadow instead, especially since I don't haul much anyway. If I were a true weekend warrior, I would have bought the Eby instead.

I have a 1990 Eby that is just as rugged as the day it was built. The thing is SOLID. As much as I love my 2001 Merhow, I'll probably stick with Ebys from now on.

I guess I will look there. Are they sold in various places or do you need to go through their company? I have not done any real investigations into Eby until now.

I think if you are looking for new, you can get a list of dealers from the Eby website (at least that is where I looked). Just like any other brand of trailer brand, they have dealers that are contracted to carry their brand.

Try contacting the company and deal direct. well worth the drive.
They always have used trailers in inventory.
Best trailers in the world. They hold their value.
I wouldn't haul anything else.

After a lot of research and talking to people I bought a 2005 Eby trailer brand new back in 2005. It is such a well made trailer and I have never once regretted buying it. I actually ordered it and had to wait 3 months for it to be built and delivered which was the only down side as I wanted it there and then after parting with such a large amount of cash! It was well worth the wait though. :)

I have one of the big 18 wheeler variety stainless steel Eby trailers (2000 model, 6 horse H/H with large a/c dressing/tack room) that still looks brand new. I absolutely love it. Of course driving a large trailer with a semi to pull it is not always practical, so I also love having my Brenderup for smaller loads and short trips.

Eby's are by far the best trailer out there. A lot of them are commercial and made for cattle and stuff- so they are definitely strong. They don't have little stupid stuff that breaks

And compared to Hawks, there is just noooo comparison

If you live near NC, L. B.'s in Harmony, NC, is a dealer and carries them in stock.

In an age where a lot of the "old reliable" brands are no longer being well built...yes. If I had to buy another trailer I would get an Eby.

all I am finding are 7' or a very few 7'3" tall. I am going to need 7'8" or taller. Do they make them that tall? I have shot off an email to Eby, but it has not been answered yet.

I know my Eby is at least 8' tall inside (13' 1" outside), but it is one of the tractor/trailer sized ones. I do not know of any of the smaller trailers that come that tall. My very large warmbloods look downright average in it, no risk of bumping a head on the ceiling!

paintjumper, I think you have to call the office, not the fastest email returners out there. LOL
