We’re trying to decide between two trailers. DH and I are at a disagreement between them.
1999 Sooner 4h head to head, stored inside
2013 Exiss 4h slant. Good sized short walk, could convert dressing room to sleeping space (nothing else).
Both are all aluminum, both low miles, good condition. Both have hay racks.
We have small horses/ponies in general but one 16.2h big bodied mare.
I prefer the Head to head but am concerned w/the extra length and potential ramp weight. I like that you can access any horse at any time from the center section, and could lead in/back into the stall and unload using the side ramp—if needed
DH prefers the slant because of the potential to convert dressing room to sleeping space (it’s AC ready etc), the smaller length, and he feels like the slant is more suited to our horses. I’m more familiar w/a slant because that’s what we’ve used for years. I did ship horses in a head to head as a kid though.
Our tow vehicle can handle either, and the price difference between them is just a couple grand.
How do I make this decision? What am I overlooking?
