So far so good!
I was annoyed by the small tack compartment size (slightly smaller than my old Brenderup Baron) but they have made bigger compartment doors on the newest models, so no longer an issue if buying new… and not the end of the world for me - I usually put tack in my SUV anyway. And have wondered if I would even bother with a tack locker for my next one.
So for no problems getting any horses on the trailer (or off - no backing needed) so it’s been popular with horses, and they travel quietly - I added a camera too. There is also MORE than enough room for all the horses that have been in there - so much that I have wished the breast bar could be moved so the chest-to-tail length was shorter and the chest to nose longer at times!
I was initially concerned that the (standard style) ramp loading doors were too flimsy to keep a horse in the trailer while the ramp goes up (if one panicked for ex) but so far no issues.
It’s not as aerodynamic as my Brenderup was, and weighs more. But there’s more vertical horse head space in the EQ which was critical when I had a 17.2 WB. The B’up sacrificed head space for a lowered front/aerodynamics, which was irritating.
The sealed rubber over aluminum plank flooring (no moving mats!) is amazing. I remember with pain all the mat moving w my Brenderup. I don’t think the rubber on the ramp is as sturdy as I would like, but we will see how it holds up.
Ventilation is something to address - I added two scoop vents above the horse’s butts (which I could have ordered for my build too) and wish I’d got an insulated ceiling (we are in CA; it can be hot). The newer Night Treka models appear to have solved the issue w bigger/more windows, and is actually lighter in weight at 1195kg/2634# so I am thinking of upgrading!
We have slept in the LQ area a few nights - and used the area as a great place to change, and hang out at shows too. Traditionally, RV and LQ beds are hard - this is no exception. Memory foam toppers have more than solved that issue.
The tiny sink doesn’t get much use - if I have dish washing to do while camping, we do it outside in a bigger container. We do use our gas grill in there to cook. But there is for sure much cooing over the little LQ by people at shows
Some things I thought were kinda cheaply made have held up great. Some caulking came off, and I lost one of the plastic hub caps. Only damage has been to a door latch when a horse was tied too loose next to it. And the jockey wheel was very hard to use when I received the trailer - they sent a new one out no fuss. And tho it hasn’t been a problem for me, I like the look of the new head dividers they are making better than mine.
Hit me up if you have any specific Qs.
