Anyone have any insights to whether a Logan Competitor will comfortably haul large horses? I'm looking at older, used trailers and there is a pretty nice late 90s Logan for sale, about 3.5 hours away from me. It's a 2h. We're not hauling drafts, but big, ranchy QHs that are 16h and bigger and 1200#ish and I know that they don't fit comfortably in several of the newer trailers.
If you've ever put a big horse in an old Logan, or know someone that has hauled with one, please take a minute and let me know about your experience.
I did a quick Google and found one for sale that says it's 6'8" inside height and 6' inside width. I have a 1994 Logan Trojan. Absolutely love it! I bought it new for my 16.1, built like a tank QH mare. It now fits my WB mare with room to spare. It's a straight load though and it looks like the Competitor is a slant load? I went with a straight load because none of the slant loads I looked at back then seemed big enough for my mare. Can you call the seller and ask them to measure the stall width?

Thanks! I think I am going to have to get the seller to measure the stalls. The Logan straightloads are great trailers, but my dad wants a slant because the tack room is so much easier to utilize, particularly for western saddles. He also prefers a ramp, for safety, and only wants a 2h, so not having a budget to order new, it's a bit of a tall order.
I have a Logan competitor slant from the late 90's, and the stalls are really nice and roomy IMO. I don't have a lot of experience with slants, but this is the only one I haven't had to try and stuff my big 16++h Appy into. Nobody has a problem loading into it because its really roomy and inviting. We just hauled cross country with it and everyone had enough room.
