[RC] guilty husband, LOL - Chris Paus

I think my husband is feeling guilty about scheduling an elective surgery for a non lifethreatening issue when I wanted to go to Winnie Clutter's ride. Although it is a bit iffy if I'd be well enough to go anyway as I'm still recovering from that blow to the head, I was not a happy camper to lose the option to go. I made a case about how many rides I've given up over the years to baby sit him.
Later that evening, he asked me how much a replacement horse trailer would cost. He's getting some money from his mother's estate. What's left over after he buys a motorcycle, will go to a newer trailer for me.
that said, if anyone hears of a trailer or has one, let me know! I think I'll have around $12,000 to spend, maybe a little more. so I know I won't be able to get a very new one, or one with lots of "stuff.' But I should be able to upgrade from what i've got.
here's what I need.
2 or 3 H .. .slant preferred, but will consider a 2H straight load. Nothing bigger than a 3H. I don't want to haul and park that much trailer!
Good tires, good floor
Tack area that's not in the dressing room
Room in the LQ/dressing area for my grandson and I to sleep and a place for chairs or bench
AC/heat strip would be nice.
Great options
Water tank
outside battery boxes
A walk-through would be really nice
A wash up and potty area would be da bomb
If there's no cooking area, a safe place to light up my coleman stove would be nice.
Stallion stall would be nice
Here's what I've got to sell. It would be great for someone just starting out....
1978 (yeah, it's old, but still very nice for its age) King GN 2H straight load
It's got a huge tack area under the horse mangers, accessible from either side of the trailer outside.
A decent size LQ/dressing area with queen bed area, a bench for storage and sitting, closet and mirror. It's paneled and insulated. It's longer than a lot of newer ones, but more narrow.
It's got AC that works really well, no heat, though.
Crank out windows
Awning (that works)
The floors are wood, very heavy duty and in good shape
Decent tires and spare
Brand new hand crank jack. Cranks very easily, not much muscle power needed.
Wired with plug ins for connecting to a generator or camp site power. Inside wiring for microwave, fridge etc. but I don't have those things.
It is steel, but not too much rust. I've looked at newer ones that have a lot more rust than this one!
It pulls and handles well behind a truck. 23 feet long from nose to rear doors.
It must be a decent ride for the horses. Once one goes for a ride in it, they are willing to hop right in again.
