The more (and more) I peruse goosneck options, the more (and more) I'm liking the "2+1" format. I really like having the extra square footage in the horsey area for hay/bucket/whatever storage and I really like having the option for a smaller third stall if I want to haul 3 beasts (I've assured The Boy that this won't in fact force me to buy a third horse).
This Logan seems to fit the bill. It's new, but discounted since it's a 2011 and it has all the features I want. Side ramp for loading/unloading, door in the bulkhead (makes the trailer into a "porch" of sorts that can help keep the tack room a bit cleaner, rhino lined under the gooseneck, water tank, lots of lights, lots of big windows and MASSIVE straight load stalls that come in at 94" from butt to chest bar (HOLY MOLEY).
I also like that the dressing room wall is at a slant, which does make the dressing room (and the + 1) space a bit smaller, but that also keeps the trailer to a really decent length of a 22' deck, which isn't much larger than a normal 2 horse straight load (20'). Totally helps us achieve the goal of keeping this thing maneuverable, while also giving a good amount of storage and flexibility.
The only downsides are that 1) the trailer is in CA (although northern CA), so we have to deliver it. and 2) that it's an extruded aluminum floor. I really wanted to find a Rumber or WERM floor if we were shopping for new trailers, but this does have Logan's "Whiz Proof" vortex coated floor, so that's several steps up form a normal aluminum situation.
True to form, this is about double the cost of my original budget, but that just really shouldn't be too surprising to anyone (dammit). What do you think? Hate it? love it? total steal, should I snap it up before we leave on Wednesday????
Sounds fun right!?
