I meant to say that we purchased our '89 25' Excella for $7500. We felt good about the price. Everything worked, but my husband chose to update a few things. We are updating the interior as mentioned above. (It looked/smelled of the '80s!) We were very happy with the price. We paid cash, so I can't tell you about loans.

In fact the longer trailers seem to be easier to maneuver especially when backing.
Right... parking a 4x8 in a tight spot by the river in the woods (up a mountain with 64 switch backs) is exactly like parking a 32' trailer.

The short one will jack knife into a tree quicker...
The short trailers respond quicker.
You have to be very slow and make very gentle turns on the steering wheel.
You cannot stop watching or get distracted.
Once you get a long trailer headed the right way it will pretty much stay on course.
Can you ultimately get the smaller trailer into a smaller space?
Of course...
