The safety and condition of the Used Horse Trailers you look at. - Here are a few important points to consider before hauling your horse or any horse in a an old used horse trailer. Have your trailer inspected by a trustworthy and knowledgeable person. The safety of your animals, other people, and you depends on maintaining that used horse trailer in a like news condition in regards to safety issues.
The first point of inspection is the floor. The floors are made of wood and the wood rots. I can't think of anything more horrible than a horse falling through the rotted floor of a used horse trailer. I won't mention any more about it because it sends chills up my back. The wood floor planking must be in top condition with NO rot, softness, or punky areas. A prime area of any used horse trailer for sale is to have the trailer floor inspected by a knowledgeable person. The underneath cross frames that the wood planks sit on must not be rusted. Surface rust doesn't hurt but anymore than that will reduce strength. The cross frames attach to the main frame. Inspect the welds for cracks and look along the edge of the weld for crack lines where the weld meets the frame. Again, it is a good idea to get a second and informed opinion. Have the trailer frame inspected by someone who knows horse trailers. Make a list of the used horse trailers for sale you are interested in. make a note of the floor and frame condition.
One item that is often overlooked when shopping for used horse trailers for sale is the door latch. Each door must secure easily and then unlock easily. The latch mechanism on the doors must be safe and lock so that the doors can't open accidently on the used horse trailer.
Trailer brakes - Once you get the rig rolling you must be able to stop it safely. Have the trailer brakes inspected by an expert and always drive with the idea that you have no brakes on the trailer. Give yourself plenty of stopping distance when pulling used horse trailers loaded with horses.
Trailer lights - Have the trailer brakes inspected by an expert and always make sure that the tail lights and brake lights are working properly before each pull. The lights on the trailer help other drivers to see your trailer and get an idea what your intentions are as to stopping and turning. Understand that many people on the road are not paying attention when they drive, and some are just plain stupid. Take all precautions you can before pulling any used horse trailers.
