It hauls my brenderup just fine and I'm very happy with the combo.
    I know! People keep asking to buy it. But I love it. It's really too small for us though, we need a three horse. I'm holding out for a Rice Treble. Wish I could import one!

    You could go with a Fautras Oblic 3. A lightweight, Euro trailer that is a three-horse bumperpull.

    I like that Bockmann Master polyester trailer because it looks like a thermos. The price is astronomical though. I got my Featherlite for $7500 new. I think the Bockmann was close to $20,000. I don't use my trailer enough to justify the cost of one.
    You are what you dare.

    Do they have a website? I did a google search and couldn't find one.

    Edited to add - I see it's a slant load, I hate slants. May end up with one, but I'm trying to find a bumper pull 2+1.

    That's a very good price! Walls on Brenderups of that year were made with a different material than the newer ones - a very sturdy wood composite with preservative - but which can degrade over time whereas the later stuff is basically impervious to weather & time (they changed in 1992ish I think). It looks like someone has been very careful to preserve the original walls & has reinforced it with aluminum skin in places, maybe? And it looks like they painted it white. I'd check that it's as well done in person as it looks in the pics, but even if it still needs some work someone is going to get a great deal on that!
