Appy with attitude

Appy Mare (need to Sell) - $400 (CA)
Huyana is about a year and a half old. She is an appaloosa. She is brown with white spots and black stockings. She is a bit of a sweetheart but tends to crowd forward when being led. She also tends to nip. Huyana needs a four horse trailer with a ramp to be transported.


I would tend to say that what Huyana needs is someone who knows what they are doing.

Homemade AND a 4 Star!!

2006 4 Star horse trailer (CA)
Model - homemade
nice 2 horse streight load great for any horse. does not have area for tack or a feeder has clips for hay bag. selling only because my mare is to big to fit in. she is 17 hands and has like maby 2 inches of room over her back. and i need a bigger one for her. it has a bar in the middle that does not move. email with any questions any offers concidered needs paint job. these are old pix 800 obo


Somehow I just don't believe that it is A) a 2006 model  B) a 4 Star C) nice.  If it is 'great for any horse'  then why are you selling it because it is too small for your horse??
And take a look at the junk in it!  What's up with the bullet holes?  4 in the front - does that make it a 4 Star - or a 4 Shot??  Nice flat tire too.


And what do we have here?  Another ad from the same person - and they appear to be the same type of trailer.  This one looks like someone went crazy with a rivet gun.  Your horse can rip up his face on the backs of the rivets in the manger while he is eating.  Great.

2006 4 Star Model: used $1,000 Nice
I have 2 streight load horse trailers that i am willing to trade for one 3 or 4 horse trailer. when i go to the mountians im having to use both trailers just to go somewhere. so i really need a bigger one

Are they going to fill up the next bigger trailer with junk too??

You might be thinking I am a little harsh on this person, but it is because of this (note the trailer/car in the background - look familiar?):

I really do not like people who just dump their horses for such stupid, selfish, superficial reasons.

Dating service for horses??

Single gelding ISO LTR- sunset walks on the beach optional - $3000 (MT)
Single gelding in search of a new long term relationship. I'm a progressive kind of guy, so it doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman. My stats: I'm 11 years old, 14.3 hands, and stocky. I'm a gaited Spotted Saddle Horse originally from Alabama, so if you like southern accents, I'm your guy. Please don't judge me for my short stature- I have a big heart and am big enough to carry adult men. In my current relationship, I'm just not getting enough attention, and she's moved onto this tall dark and handsome guy. I've heard the internet is a great place to look for a new relationship, so I thought I'd try. My interests include trail riding, swimming, chasing cows, and the occasional horse show. Although I'm gaited, I love to run, and have been told that I have a great smooth lope. I have good manners, stand for grooming and saddling, and have been taught a trick to "park out" so it's easier for you to get on. I like going for rides in the trailer, and though no one likes the doctor, I'm good about seeing the vet, and stand for my manicure and pedicure. I'm UTD on my shots, worming, and have a current Coggins. Not to brag, but I'm very smart. Because of this, I'd like to have a new relationship with someone who knows what they're doing when they ride me. I like little kids and am safe to lead them around, but I'm definitely not a kid's or beginner's horse because I can take advantage of people who don't know what they're doing. Since we all have some baggage, I'll just be honest. If you don't ride me regularly, then I get nervous about leaving my friends at the barn. I'll probably try to turn around and go home. If you know what you're doing, I'll go for you. If some of my friends come along, I'll be just fine. In my current relationship, she says that I'm "barn sour" but that I was never like that when I was ridden more regularly. She travels too much to give me the attention I need, so right now I'm living a life of leisure.

Please send me an email and tell me more about yourself, and maybe we can exchange numbers and go on a date to see if we get along.


I know they were going for cutesy, but it just sounds creepy.  Cute horse though.  I am having trouble with $3,000 for a barn sour horse that they don't even say is actually registered or is a proven winner at something???

Tires? Wheels? Your guess is as good as mine!

2 horse trailer - $900 (MN)
The interior is 7 foot tall. It is a 1984 CCC LTD. THe tires are prettty good yet. There only the vents for the horses. THey load in straight forward in the trailer and you go out the door in the front. Has a solid floor yet.


Another trailer growing in the jungle...............

Save these weight definitions

Understanding RV/trailer Weights
For the safety of your family and others around you, it is crucial to understand and stay within the weight ratings of your RV/trailer and tow vehicle.

Vehicle and trailer weight numbers fall into two categories:

  1. Actual weights: Measured weight of the vehicle or its components. Factory quoted weights may be averages or estimates of actual weight.  
  2. Ratings: Weight ratings are limits placed on the vehicle or its components, which should never be exceeded.
The most common confusion about weights occurs when the two above categories are mixed.
GVW: Gross Vehicle Weight

GVW Includes 
  1. Curb Weight
  2. Cargo Weight  
  3. Persons weight

 Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) is the actual weight of the fully loaded vehicle or trailer, including all cargo, fluids, passengers, and optional equipment, as measured by a scale. 
If you are in a motor home and not towing anything, the GVW is the total weight of the RV/trailer and everything in it. If your RV/trailer is composed of more than one unit (towing a trailer or a vehicle), then the GVW is only part of the total. 
The GVW is important because without this number you can not determine if you are within the limits set forth by the manufacturer, laws, and regulations. This number can be approximated based on information provided by the manufacturer or dealer, but the only way to be sure is to drive the RV/trailer on a scale and measure it.
 GVWR: Gross Vehicle Weight Rating

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is the maximum number that the GVW or GTW should never exceed. GVWR is applied to trailers as well as vehicles, but you may see this rating referred to as the Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight.
GTW: Gross Trailer Weight

GTW Includes  
  1. All GAW's  
  2. Tongue Weight or King Ping Weight  
  3. Weight on all deployed jacks

Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) is the same as Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) when referring to a trailer. While GVW can be applied to tow vehicles and trailers, GTW makes it clear that we are speaking of a trailer.

 When connected, a portion of the trailer's weight is transferred to the tow vehicle through the hitch. In this case the GTW includes all axle GAW's and the Tongue Weight or King Pin Weight.

When not connected to the tow vehicle, the trailer's weight rests on its own tires and on all deployed support and stabilizing jacks. If you are weighing a trailer without the tow vehicle, be sure to place the entire unit on the scale, including all jacks.
GCW: Gross Combination Weight

GCW Includes  
  1. GVW of tow vehicle
  2.  GVW of towed vehicle

 Gross Combination Weight (GCW) is the actual weight of the fully loaded tow vehicle plus the towed vehicle (trailer, car, boat, etc.), including all cargo, fluids, passengers, and optional equipment.

 If your RV is composed of more than one unit (towing a trailer or a vehicle), then the GCW is the total weight of all connected vehicles and everything in them.

 Again, the only way to accurately determine the GCW is to drive the entire assembly on a scale. You may also determine the GCW by adding up the individual GVW's of all components.

 If you weigh the components separately, make sure that they are configured and loaded exactly as you will be when traveling.
GCWR: Gross Combination Weight Rating

Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) is the maximum number that the tow vehicle GVW plus towed vehicle GVW (or GTW) should never exceed.
GAW: Gross Axle Weight
Gross Axle Weight (GAW) is the actual weight placed on a single axle. Assuming a well-balanced vehicle, the GAW is then evenly distributed to all tires on that axle.

In addition to the axle weight rating, the GAW must be within the tire weight ratings as well. To determine the amount of weight placed on each tire, divide the GAW by the number of tires on the axle.

 You may see the more specific RGAW, when referring to the rear axle, or FGAW, when referring to the front axle.
GAWR: Gross Axle Weight Rating

Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) is the maximum number that the GAW of a single axle should never exceed. You may see the more specific RGAWR, when referring to the rear axle, or FGAWR, when referring to the front axle.
Tongue Weight or King Pin Weight 
Tongue Weight (also called Tongue Load) is the actual weight pressing down on the hitch ball by the trailer. The recommended amount of Tongue Weight is 10-15% of the GTW.

 King Pin Weight (also called Pin Weight) is the actual weight pressing down on the fifth wheel hitch by the trailer. The recommended amount of King Pin Weight is 15-25% of the GTW.
These weights are added to the tow vehicle's GVW.
Curb Weight

Curb Weight Includes:
  1. Vehicle weight with standard equipment only  
  2. Full fuel tank weight  
  3. Full fresh water tank(s) weight  
  4. Full propane container weight  
  5. Equipment fluids weight  
Curb Weight is the actual weight of a vehicle or trailer including all standard equipment, full fuel tanks, full fresh water tanks, full propane bottles, and all other equipment fluids, but before taking on any persons or personal cargo.  
We have seen the following variations to this definition:
  • Includes driver
  • Includes optional equipment

 Pay close attention to how the manufacturer defines Curb Weight because this is often used to calculate other weights, such as the cargo carrying capacity or Payload.
Dry Weight
Dry Weight is the actual weight of a vehicle or trailer containing standard equipment without fuel, fluids, cargo, passengers, or optional equipment.

We have seen the following variations to this definition:  
  • Includes commonly ordered optional equipment
  • Includes fluids of generator and other onboard equipment (oil, coolant, fuel)
  • May or may not include RV batteries 
 Pay close attention to how the manufacturer defines Dry Weight because this is often used to calculate other weights, such as the cargo carrying capacity or Payload.
UVW: Unloaded Vehicle Weight

UVW Includes  
  1. Vehicle weight as manufactured at the factory  
  2. Full fuel tank weight  
  3. Equipment fluids weight

 Unloaded Vehicle Weight (UVW) is the weight of a vehicle as manufactured at the factory. It includes full engine and generator fuel tanks and fluids, if applicable. It does not include cargo, water, propane, or dealer-installed accessories. Be aware that some manufacturers weigh each unit to determine UVW, while others provide only the average or estimated weight for each model.

  We have seen the following variations to this definition: 

  •  Includes actual factory installed options
  • Includes commonly ordered factory installed options

 Pay close attention to how the manufacturer defines UVW because this is often used to calculate other weights, such as the cargo carrying capacity or Payload.
Cargo Weight
Cargo Weight Includes

  1. Personal cargo weight  
  2. Optional equipment weight  
  3. Tongue Weight or King Ping Weight
Cargo Weight is the actual weight of all items added to the Curb Weight of the vehicle or trailer. This includes personal cargo, optional equipment, and Tongue or King Pin Weight.

This number is important because it will determine how many things you can safely pack into your RV/trailer. Within this number you need to fit the weight of your clothes, shoes, linens, books, dishes, beer, cleaning supplies, computer equipment, hiking gear, bicycles, water sport implements, food, hay, grain, saddles, tools, tack, horses —basically everything you want to take with you.
Payload Includes  
  1. Cargo Weight  
  2. Persons weight

Even though it does no include an R, Payload is a weight rating. It is the maximum weight that persons plus cargo should never exceed.

Payload is derived by subtracting Curb Weight from GVWR. In other words, the difference between a vehicle with standard equipment and the maximum allowed weight.
