We camped with some folks that had one. They are aluminum skin with a steel frame. I really like the trailer. It had lots of head room in the gooseneck but as far as how well built they are, I could not tell you. Are they still making them new?

Well, horton trailer, no longer makes a horse trailer, they still DO make enclosed trailers and equipment trailers, they have been out of the horse trailer biz for a few years, resale on them is so-so, with that being said, if your looking for an aluminum skin trailer with a steel frame, that would be a horton, as far as service, who knows ??? if they dont build horse trailers anymore, it may be hard to get warranty work, i have seen where the necks of some of the LARGE horton living quarters have buckeled up and the aluminum looks like a crushed soda can, this probaly is not the problem on all of the horse trailers horton built, but look at it like this, is the trailer priced right ?? does it look to be in good condition ??? use your best judgement when looking at the trailer with your own eyes, remember, trailers are hand built, one at a time by people, not like cars, every trailer can have a diffrent problem.

I work for a trailer dealership we will not hardly trade for them I have takin a couple on cosignment and sold them. I would not recommend them at all. I talk to one customer that had a 6 horse head to head and when she loaded all of her horse in the trailer the posts dropped out of the roof and the dividers fell over.
