Looking for some feedback here: I’ve got an older model Featherlite stock trailer that I bought years ago for a horse who had been in a trailer accident and was claustrophobic. I find most horses tend to appreciate the airiness and the ability to ride in it box-stall style.
The airiness can also be a PITA, though, especially in winter or the rainy season. It’s kind of a drag when there’s perfectly good bedding left over that gets rained on, or if I want to leave any equipment in it (that wouldn’t fit in the peak).
I know I can get plexiglas sides from Featherlite that go in the channels of the openings and I’ve considered this over the years. But I’d like to be able to take them out for summer.
Anyone used either the manufacturer version or DIYed this? How difficult was it to install or remove?
If I had the financial means, I’d probably sell this trailer and replace it with a straight-load 2-horse (or, as long as we’re dreaming, a 2 + 1 with a side ramp). But I just had to replace my tow vehicle after the previous one quite literally went up in flames, so I’m back to making this one work. It’s a solid trailer, just had a few features (like this one) that I don’t love.
