Merhow has been building trailers since 1956! This is an Excellent brand that is Very Well built and these trailers last a loooooong time! A friend of mine had one that was 20 years old but looked practically new!
I will miss this wonderful trailer, but i am moving out of the country and can't take it with me...
This is a Great price for a hard to find custom trailer like this for large horses with the option to have them ride facing their preferred direction of backward!!!
I have lots more photos, email for link to them.
