Would You Recommend Double D to Others?
Yes
The trailer is extremely well made and designed for comfort of the horses and functionality. I had searched extensively and found nothing that suited my needs. My horses are 16 hands, 1300 pounds and most trailers on the market, especially slant loads are just too small. Working with Brad was a pleasure. He listened to what I wanted and made suggestions on what could be built that would fit the bill. The process from start to finish was easy and I wound up with the trailer of my dreams! The driver who delivered my trailer was very good about showing me how everything on the trailer worked. Because I had never driven a gooseneck, he took the time to coach me through unhooking, hooking and unhooking the trailer and went with me for a drive to help me learn cornering, backing and parking with it. He was terrific!
Additional Comments:
I would not hesitate to recommend Double D horse trailers to anyone interested in getting a well built, functional and safe trailer for your best friends! And it's beautiful to boot!!

Hey Kyle,

Yes, my truck does have the mirrors that extend out. I drove it once with them still in and had a hard time seeing what I was doing when cornering. Bottom line is, you need to get what you're going to be comfortable, confident and happy with!!

Hi Cindy,
Thank you so much for your really great answer. Just wondering though if you think 4" added in width would be enough ...plus, because I'm getting a combo forward/reverse slant I'm getting an extra foot in length in the front stall. I'm concerned about getting the full 90" width because with 10" additional width, I'm concerned about limited range of sight around the trailer out of my truck's side view mirrors.....trying to move into different lanes on the highway. My current trailer that I'm used to isn't even 80" wide.....probably more like 72" wide. I just have normal side-view mirrors on my truck. Do you have the side-view mirrors with the big "arms"?

Thanks so much for your help.

Howdy Kyle!

My trailer is 90 inches wide (an extra 10 inches) and I also got it extra tall so it's 7 1/2 feet tall (an extra 2 inches). I find my horses fit nicely even in the front most stall. Your horses will have plenty of room and I think your friend's horse will fit if you get the extra height and width. It'll probably still be tight though; that's a big horse! I did not add length; mine has an 18' box and I didn't want anything longer than that. I think with a slant load, the width is the key in finding the fit for your horses. I found talking this through with Brad to be helpful.

I did get the rumbar floor and I really like it. It is not slippery and has grooves in it that provide traction. It provides a lot more grip that the usual mats that you find on wood floor trailers. Of course any floor would get slippery when wet, so if it's rainy, I'd put shavings in there, or if I was going on a longer haul when they might pee.

Extra footage for large horses

Hi Cindy,

Could you tell me how much footage you added for your horses? Did you add length to the trailer and/or width?

Thanks,
Kyle

Hi Cindy,

I'm planning on purchasing a Double -D 2-horse slant bumper bull. I currently have a 2-horse straight load and am trying to wrap my head around the slant.

I'm curious how much footage in length and width you added to the trailer and how it affected each of your stalls for your 16 hands 1300 lb horses? Mine aren't that big; one is 15.2HH and the other is still growing at 4YO and is 14.3HH but probably won't end up much bigger than maybe 15.3HH. However, at times I trailer a friend's horse that is quite big (100 inches long, not that wide and about 17HH.

Also, did you get the rumber floors and if so, do you find them slippery at all?

Thanks,
Kyle
