    As far as I know, said animal does not exist. Basically, you have to see what's selling at what price, taking into consideration size, age, condition, type of brakes, lighting, etc. Then search equine.com and dreamhorse.com (and their sister sites) to see what comes up as far as trailers. Some trailers just don't come up used. I looked for over 25 years for a used Merhow and they just don't come up used. I think they get sold as soon as the owner tells friends it's for sale.

    Basically, you're on your own. Good luck.

    Does not exist.

    The best you can do is find some on-line horse trailer seller websites and look for what you want. If you don't get an exact match, you can probably find something reasonably close. Two or three of those will give you an asking price "market ceiling." Today I'd figure 15-20% off asking as reasonable starting points for negotiation.

    Good luck in your project.

    Default Nope

    Not yet anyway! You might try calling a local dealer with the information regarding the trailer you're looking at. Most of them are really nice and will at least give you a "ballpark" figure to work with - especially if you plan on having them service said trailer in the future! Good luck!
