Looking for older 3H GN with LQ or Weekender to replace my Hart trailer. I found a 03 Sooner Revolution, a few Exiss and Sundowners.
Which brand would you recommend? I may haul 2-3 horses once or twice a week to local shows during spring through October and a weekend or 2 per month for trail rides.

Just my opinions-
A) The Sooner Revolution was an entry trailer using some new style construction. Worked OK. Hard to do body repair on, and prone to leaking through the walls.
B) Exiss- depends on years. Some years the models very good. Other years the same model may have not near the structure. For example an '04 Sport and a '08 Sport are different levels of structure. Same with Event. Generally, when Exiss came out with a new model like the Event or Sport, it wasn't very good. Then it gets beefed up to a nice trailer. Remember, all of those times are late 90s to mid/late 00s.
C) Sundowner- same. There are great ones. And some not so much. Many of the steel frame units are nearing the end of their lifespan. Most of the aluminum ones are great. 
D) Elite- they're all good.
E) Cheroke- opposite of "D".

Frankly- given what most folks do, you could be considered a heavy user. Congratulations! Most trailers just sit.

Before someone goes blasting these ratings, they are just my opinion. But it does come from living just up the road from a large trailer repair shop. :) But to each his own. And I suppose there are certainly exceptions in everything. Trailers are hand crafted individually.
