Who here has an electric winch for their gooseneck? I have been thinking for sometime that it would be *really* nice to have. Who has one, who wishes they had one, and is it worth the money? How much did yours cost? Thanks.
I've had electric (slower) and hydraulic (quicker). A lot like indoor plumbing...not truly necessary, but once you have it, you will NEVER be willing to be without it again!!! I get one on every trailer, so I don't know what they cost to retrofit. It will be WORTH EVERY PENNY!
I just ordered one on my new trailer. I hemmed and hawed about the price though. It was around 1K. But, I am glad I spent the money. Apparently there are others you can buy for less and retrofit your trailer. if you look on www.horsetrailerworld.com they have one they did revews on. But, when I priced it out, it came out to be a little less than 1K but with installation it was like $1400. The price also depends on the size of your trailer like if you have to go hydralic versus electric.
I am glad I spent the money, it's definitely a luxury. If I had a gooseneck trailer that didnt have it, at some point, I would probably retrofit it.
