Some desirable trailers came in
recently. We’re going to prepare detailed writeups
shortly, but in the meantime, here are some previews…;
This Trail-et 3H slant bumper pull came
in recently for us to display as a private sale.
The owner no longer needed a 3-horse trailer, so she’s
now pulling a new 2-horse Kingston. The subject
trailer is a 1989, but it’s reported that it was stored
indoors for many years and it shows better than many
trailers 10 years newer. It has an aluminum skin
over a steel frame and has front storage and a permanent
rear tack. It was based in Pennsylvania, which
requires annual inspections. The
current inspection is valid through October 2016, so the
mechanicals have been checked regularly and fairly
recently. We’re preparing this brief item just before
we close for a week of vacation, but we plan to do an
expanded writeup when we return. Stop by and check
it out then! Asking $5800.
This 2003 Kingston Windsor with Dressing
Room just came in to be displayed as
a private sale. The owner no longer has her
horses, so it was time for the Kingston to go to a
new home. The Windsor features a
warmblood-length horse area as standard, plus a
well-equipped dressing room. Other noteworthy
features include two escape doors, running boards
and all-around windows for excellent light and
ventilation. We’re showing the trailer
before we had a chance to clean it, but we wanted to
get it on our website before we closed for a week of
vacation. We plan to expand this writeup when
we return. Kingston is a low-volume producer
and used ones don’t often come on the market, so we
don’t expect this one to stick around for long.
We just took this well-kept 2007 Trailers USA
2H straight load in trade on a new
Böckmann. This is a 2H straight load with saddle
racks and bridle hooks up front, so it offers tack
accommodation in an easy-to-handle size. It features
a spring-assisted rear ramp (with adjustable
assist), two escape doors, all-around windows and
much more. This trailer has aluminum skin over a
steel frame. It was so well cared for that it even
got waxed periodically! It just passed Maryland
State Inspection. We plan to prepare an expanded
writeup shortly, but in the meantime, we wanted to
get this preview online. Asking $6500.
body height, this custom
2015 Cimarron 4H slant is
taller than most. The 42” stalls are wider than many
and the front stall is particularly wide at 51”, so this
trailer can accommodate larger horses than many slants .
There’s also a ramp on that front stall for an added
measure of versatility. We just took this one in trade.
It’s so lightly used, still smells like a new trailer.
you’ll be getting what is essentially a new trailer for
several thousand less than original price. As with the
other trailers in this section, we plan to prepare a
more detailed writeup in the near future.
Here’s a 1995 Jamco 6H slant with rear
tack. Jamco aluminum trailers feature
stacked-aluminum-tube walls (we think of it as analogous to
how they built kit log homes). Jamco trailers are very
solidly built and feature a high level of standard equipment
and excellent craftsmanship. Jamco is a low-volume
producer and used ones don’t often come on the market.
A new version of this trailer would cost about $60,000.
This one came in recently for us to show as a private sale.
We just took this lightly-used 2015
Shadow 713 Select 2H Slant in trade. The owner liked
the trailer, but needed to haul a small carriage and decided
to trade it on one of our side-ramp Frontier Fast Tracks to
facilitate loading the carriage. This Shadow
features aluminum frame & skin. In addition to the
regular drop feed windows on the head wall, the long windows
on the butt wall and rear gate also drop down.
Great light and ventilation. This trailer was on the
road for only about 6 months, so it shows nearly as new.
