I have been wanting a little living quarters horse trailer since we started horse camping. I have poured over LQ's and drooled over them. A few weeks ago I saw a cute little trailer on Southeasttexas.com. I showed it to Barry and he said it was too little. I kept looking at it because it was just precious!!!
Last Sunday I sent an email asking for more pictures. A nice lady called me back - the trailer was her sisters. She said it was also on Horsetrailerworld.com and I went out there and looked and yep...better pictures and it was so cute!
I said I would like to go see it so Monday I drove up there to see it. Kellie was supposed to go with me but at the last minute business issues got in the way so I went up there myself. OMG it was precious! Seemed to be in really good condition. The lady's sister owned the trailer and her husband had built it in. She is a purple lover like me! The trailer has a port a pottie, a cowboy shower, a little sink and a nice refrigerator.
I really liked Linda - and come to find out - her sister Cherry did the Bombproof Clinic with me and Kellie! Linda showed me the trailer and told me as much as she could about it. We visited for quiet a while. She wanted 13k and I offered 9k. We settled on 10k. I looked it up on the internet and I couldn't find anything bad about the trailers. Only really positive stuff.
I called the credit union and asked about financing the trailer. I got that ball rolling. Credit union wanted it evaluated as it wasn't new and was a built in lq. I asked Kent if he would go look at it with me because he was close.
Tuesday I went up there and hauled the trailer in Cherry's truck to Kirbyville to be evaluted. Kent met me there and he liked the trailer. Woot! the awning is PURPLE!
I told Barry about it Monday and he wasn't happy at all but I am getting it anyway. I am tired of waiting. I didn't ask him to buy it - just to haul it once a month.
Today Cherry came and signed papers for a title transfer. I will have to call and get insurance on it tomorrow morning. My note is going to be $201 and a few cents. I can handle that as my Brenderup will be paid for in March.
Cherry is going to deliver it to me tomorrow. I can't wait! So very excited to have my own LQ. Going to work on the interior and decorate it to please me. I told Kellie she and I need to go on a road trip as soon as we are able.
