Thank you everyone! The trailer I am looking for may be tough to find. I want an all aluminum 2+1 w/DR (door in DR to horse area). I am also a bit picky as to brand. I want either a 4 Star, Eby, Jamco, Adam, Hawk, Equispirit, Merhow, Turnbow, C&C or similar quality. Not alot out there and when they appear they are snapped up quickly. Plus, I do not want to pay a fortune for one, but want one in excellent condition. At least I have a very nice trailer now (Exiss 2H str. load GN/DR) that is practically new. If I don't find what I'm looking for at least I have a great trailer. So to advertise for a wanted and also to sell, what is a good example of an ad. PS: This is not an ad. I seriously need to explore all internet options to find the trailer I'm looking for.
I bought my Hawk 2+1 with a DR off of CL very recently. It was several states away. Seller had good photos, I spoke to them on the phone to hash out details and extra questions, and my husband drove to pick it up. Price was almost too good to be true, and I LOVE the trailer, super happy!!
Agree on adding Turnbow, Merhow and the others to your list. Hawk and Equispirit also make a nice 2+1 style.
The 2+1's are out there, it may just take some time and patience to find it.
Watch the stall sizing on the +1 section. Many of the ones listed are deceiving. There are alot that should just be described as a 2Horse with the front ramp/ unload. The Eby posted would not be one I'd consider if looking for a true 2+1. Not enough room for that horse to be separated from the rear animals.
Finding this style under 20k will be a challenge. FYI.
I found my trailer on Craigslist and got it for a steal. I looked for 6-8 months and waited for the right thing to come along at the right price. Its a 1992 Trailet 2-horse gooseneck with a dressing room - 7'6" height, aluminum. I got it for $3k. I love my trailer and had a very good experience buying it from the seller. It was located about 2 hours away from me - not bad!
