Re: [RC] Need advice on GN LQ trailers - Bonnie Davis

I Was up in Eugene, Oregon at the Oregon Horse Center where Silverado Trailers are built.  In fact, I'm looking at them custom building me a trailer.  They are really nice and I was surprised that they are not anymore expensive than some of the manufactured-on-the-lot trailers.  This way I can put what I want here, there or anywhere.  They're website is www.silveradotrailers.com but if you want to talk to someone, e-mail Kirk Toy (he's factory sales manger) at kirk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or call (541) 744-0447.

Subject: [RC] Need advice on GN LQ trailers

OK, we decided against buying a motorhome and giving up our GN trailer.  We're going to look for a 3H GN Living Quarter trailer now.

1)  Which brands seem to be the best value and quality? I know they contract out the manufacture/assemblage of the LQ interior most of the time, so that can influence the quality of innards.

2)  Anyone know of or have one for sale?  Preferably in very good to excellent shape.  Looking for 10 plus foot short wall living quarters.  Also prefer seperate shower from toilet.  Trailer can not be longer than 37 feet total.... or else it won't fit in our driveway.
Ideally located not too far from California.

3)  I'm also thinking that trailers cost more in California than in say Texas, AZ or NM.  Got any names/phone numbers of dealers with new and/or used inventory?

New 3H GN 10+' LQ trailers were going for $35,000-$40,000+.  Obviously, I would like to pay less.... say in the $25,000 - $30,000 range for a great used one.

4)  We'll then be selling our 3H GN Sundowner Valuelite 1998 trailer.  We added a carpeted bench and carpeted shelves in the tack room.  Its in very good shape.  New ones are going for $18,000 or so.  We would like to get $14,000 OBO.

Thanks for your advice in advance.
