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

The new Sundowner comes in with the AERC discount about equivalent to a one-year old trailer.
    Also with getting equipment that is more unique to endurance riding, you don't have to pay more to have it installed later.  We eleminate equipment that you may not use.
    A basic three-horse with 10 ft. Living quarter either 6'9" or 8 ft wide will run from around $35,000 to $42,000 depending on the type of equipment you choose.
    There are a number of options we probably need to discuss after some questions:
        What type truck do you pull with?
        Do you do multi-days?
        Do you normally take two or three horses to a ride?
        How fast do you need the trailer?
    If you could give me this information or give me your phone number we could discuss details.
Thanks, Dean

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.
