I'm starting my search for new to me horse trailer and I'm leaning towards exiss. I've pulled what I've seen and they appear to be built on based on what I've seen.Give me the good bad and ugly on these please. Anything specific to watch for?

Hi- I have had 3 Exiss trailers- 1 2H bumper pull and 2 3H goosenecks. The last one was a 2005, 8 ft wide, 7'9" tall with a 21 ft box. After 12 years of hard use it was still in great shape. All the trailers pulled like a dream, even in the mountains where I live- lots of steep twisty roads and frequent very windy conditions. The only problem I had was- watch which tires are on the trailer- mine was pretty big and I hauled large WB and lots of hay, gear etc to shows-so it was well loaded. I kept having blowouts with Towmaster tires despite keeping them covered and correctly inflated. Switching to 110 psi 14 ply tires has solved that and it still rode beautifully.
So I loved all 3 of the Exiss. Having said that, I just bought a new Cimarron because I did not feel the quality of the Exiss in the past few years was not equal to my older trailers. I would not hesitate to buy an older Exiss- mine still looked like new after 12 years!
Hope this helps
