2003 CM Norstar 2H Straightload Gooseneck HorseTrailer - $12,000
- located in Elgin, TX, 30 miles east of Austin TX.
- tows well with a half-ton pickup. I towed it with my 2007 Nissan Titan.
- Manufactured by Cimmaron, and then branded and sold by CM
- Warmblood/Thoroughbred size, so it’s huge and spacey and roomy inside.
- It's only been lightly used, and spent way too much time parked.
- All Aluminum
- 7ft 6 in tall.
- 20 ft long overall, which is a 14 ft box.
- 4 ft of changing room/tack area (could be made into a small LQ)
- 10 ft of horse area. 7 ft stall and 3 ft of headspace
- Ramp + Full length back doors.
- Escape doors on both sides.
- Overhead vents and sliding bus windows at head, at hip and in the back doors. A lot of air will move through this trailer.
- All doors lock. The tack room locks, the escape doors lock, and the back doors lock.
- Extremely versatile. The divider slides to the side if you have a horse that wants more room to load.
- Bonus: the dividers remove completely, which turns it into a big box, so you can use it to haul the lawnmower in for an oil change. I’ve never hauled a mare and foal in it, but could also see that working well.
- Tack area has four saddle holders, 2 saddle pad holders, extra hooks, and extra bars for hanging clothes.
- Tack area is carpeted, and also has a folding step-up and handle to get into the gooseneck area (I’m not as nimble as I used to be). The gooseneck area is great for camping - and because it’s extra tall, there’s still lots of area above the mattress.
- Tires are two and a half years old - and in great shape.
- The roof had developed a leak several years ago, so the ceiling has some ripples in it. I had a new roof put on the entire trailer, and they put it on top of the old roof - and it’s been dry as a bone since.
- If you didn’t know the age of the trailer - you’d never guess.
- New, a trailer like this will run 20 - 25k easily.
- The trailer tows beautifully behind my half-ton Nissan Titan. And as a gooseneck, it tows better than any bumper pull, because the truck is towing from above the axles, rather than at the bumper of the truck.
- I don’t remember the exact weight, but I know that it’s about 4500 pounds. I have figured that 4500 pound trailer + 2 horses at 1000 pounds each = 6500 pounds, which was still less than the truck’s 9500 pound max for towing. Obviously, you are responsible for doing your own due diligence - and this combination has been amazing for me.
Happy to answer any questions!
