Horse trailer drama! This is the trailer I bought just now - 1991 Merhow 2 Horse Straight Load Trailer | D&D Farm and Ranch Trailers - Seguin, Texas Paid for it. But they are inspecting it, servicing it, and detailing it. This is the first trailer I bought and I didn't have anyone come look at it with me. The floors are good. But the ramp is incredibly rusted. So I go home and get a call from the guy asking if I *really* wanted to buy it given the weight of the ramp and it's condition. He said he estimates it to be at least 200lbs and he doesn't think I'm strong enough to work it myself. Now, I am *going* to lift it when I get there just to see... He said I could have a wench installed to help me be able to work it myself. I had another trailer lined up to go look at but it's even older than this one, 1978, and is 100% steel and bigger. Also the tires on the merhow are estimated to have 50% tread left and the spare is rotted. So I probably need to purchase new tires. I normally buy tires at Sam's club but not sure if they work with trailers. I need some input since I'm trying to let my trustee trainer take a nap. Honestly, this is just a starter trailer. If I can get it to last 5 years I'd be satisfied.
