New or Used Horse Trailer?


How important is that “new car smell”?

One of the next things I ask when helping customers shop is whether they want a new or used trailer. Sometimes they know, but often they want to know the benefits of each. Below are some thoughts that can help you decide whether to buy a new or used trailer.

New Horse Trailers

If you want a full factory warranty, that “new car smell”, and do not plan to upgrade in the near future, then a new horse trailer may be what you’re looking for. And, if you are interested in financing, interest rates may be a bit lower on new horse trailers.

Used Horse Trailers

If the “new car smell” is not critical, and you plan to upgrade later, a used horse trailer may be what you’re looking for. And, our extended warranties are a great value at very reasonable prices.
