Shortenmyreins-- Thanks for taking the time to take nice pictures and explain everything! Our trailers are very similar! Now that i've been towing it for some time these are my quibbles: 1. It is harder to hitch up than my Brenderup. The room for error and literal wiggle room is far less on the Boeckmann. Not a deal breaker, just means I have to be more accurate in reversing. 2. I don't love the hay net location, especially when towing two horses. I found a super XL hay net which was perfect for 2 horses who get along, but I don't like all the swaying. I may need to come up with a better solution to hang a hay bag. 3. Not a lot of room for a person forward of the chest bar on the tack storage side (and i'm not a big person!). I always bridle inside of the trailer before offloading, and with the XL hay net and tack compartment it is a little cumbersome to maneuver on the driver's side. My horse loads awesome on to the trailer, though the first time she did stand around and sniff a lot (new trailer smell!). It is super bright, airy and inviting. I did try to pull down the back on one coolish morning, but she started to spook a little, so I just left it up, will need to work on that.
