    Default Miley Horse Trailer... Good or Bad?

    I'm looking at a 2008 Miley 2 horse trailer. Spec wise it is what I want. But because I am unfamiliar with the brand, I am a bit worried about how well it will hold up to regular use and being parked outside (no cover, fairly wet climate). What has your experience been with these trailers?
    Thanks!

    The original Mileys were one of the very first horse trailers back in the 1950's. They went out of production for many years. Then someone bought the name and put it on a cheap trailer.

    Guess the only thing that I know about the current ones is that they are cheap and cheaply constructed.

    IMO, you can do better.

    Default Mileys

    The new ones are made by Universal, same company that owns Sooner, Featherlite, Exiss and others. O.K. trailer for the money.

    I have had my Miley for about 5 years and love it! I have not had any problems with it and it hauls like a dream. I had a horse that was a hard loader/hauler and he got to where he would self load into the trailer. I have used it almost every weekend and it has really held up. I do store it in a barn so it is covered. I want to get a gooseneck with living quarters but will keep my Miley because it is so easy to haul and is great for day trips. Let me know if you want any specific information.
