Sorry for the giant photo of my neck and hair. I’m not sure how to make it stop.
I went trailer shopping. It was extremely tempting to buy one.
But first, the outfit I wore to the derby! That way if you only came for the outfit, you can skip the rest.
I drank lots of mint juleps and had a grand old time.
Now on to the horse trailer.
The dealership I went to featured a brand I haven’t heard of – Homesteader. If anyone has heard of this brand, please leave some commentary because I am having trouble finding anything on it. I was (and am) incredibly tempted to buy one.
We are going upgrade to a gooseneck, and wanted a bunch of custom features, and the price still seemed reasonable. Plus, it was super shiny!
I would be able to document every outfit I wore when I trailer someplace!
I’m really hung up on getting a two horse straight load, although the three horse slant seemed pretty roomy. But not for me – I would like the ability to abandon a horse in the trailer while I ride the other one. There is too much shuffling required to do this in a slant load.
Although if I was a horse, I would prefer the Hawk brand interior because it was all white.
But the problem with the Hawk was that the two horse bumper pull was the same price as the Homesteader two horse gooseneck. Which means if I wanted all the custom options (insulated dressing room and outlet plugs) it would probably cost $4,000 more than the the equivalent Homesteader. I hate it when nice things cost lots of money!
And my custom Homesteader would have this beautiful color:
“Charcoal”. I’m falling in love already. But I left there without a trailer. I hesitated since I don’t have any background information on this brand, and I’m still wondering if there is a better deal out there. Also, I didn’t bring my checkbook.
I need help making a decision!! Someone give me horse trailer wisdom… what brand or dealership has a good deal on two horse straight load horse trailers with dressing rooms!?
Someone give me trailer insight!! (please?)
