Cimarron Premium Trailer Review, 10 Years to the Top; Even in the current recession, Cimarron Trailers is improving, expanding and zeroing in on efficiency. The factory is staying the same size, but putting out 25% more trailers. There is a handful of aluminum trailer manufactures at the top in premium trailers. None surpasses Cimarron current models. The top trailers need smart engineering, custom doors and windows, top components, strong beautiful welds etc. The result is quality uniformity on all trailers from roof to axles. Where else would you build horse trailers, but the heart of More…
The New Logan Coach; an efficient leaner Logan sticks to what they do best, galvanized steel frames, aluminum skin and good looking value. Call it the resale value trailer. Bottom line, “beauty of aluminum and strength of steel.” One of the few composite trailer brands that can go head to head with high end aluminum trailers for longevity. Always improving and keeping it’s roots with galvanized Flo-Coat steel frame coated with Vortex, more..

Chevrolet and GMC have confirmed a new eight-speed automatic transmission will be standard on 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra models equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8.

Puc2[4] KS IILoad Max by Load Trail review: When Ram announced that its 2013 3500 dualie pickups would have a 30,000-pound maximum towing capacity, the truck wars (especially the heavy-duty truck wars) were reinvigorated. Likewise, the 30,000-pound capacity ignited another race, this time among trailer manufacturers who now need higher-capacity trailers. A few companies were making large gooseneck trailers for the “hotshot” hauler crowd, but, for the most part, this is new territory for them. More….

Ford dually towing Titan dually flatbed trailerTitan trailer rampsTitan Trailers Ruff Neck Flatbeds make the grade; I’ve used flatbed trailers more that any other type of trailer. Hauled hay, wool, tractors, buildings etc. When I was in the custom haying business, I’d put a tractor with loader hooked to a big round baler on my flatbed and put up hay all over. The Rough Neck’s we used in our “2011 Heavy-Duty Hurt Locker ShootoutRead the review…..
AutoFlex has a complete pickup truck leaf spring replacement with an air suspension. It bolts on the same place as the factory leaf springs. Self levels, improves ride, braking, steering and handling. Comes with compressor, tank, dump valve and tap for using onboard air for your tires etc. Also a complete trailer air suspension.AutoFlex Review
New features with EZ-Connector;they’ve always come with dummy plugs to keep the connector ends clean and give you somewhere to store your trailer plug. Well now the female end comes with a self-closing door instead of a dummy plug and the storage end for the male plug has a self-closing door. The truck end (female plug) door has an over size O-ring to keep the connector pins clean. It also has metal embedded in the door for the earth magnet to draw the…… Learn more…

cbstallDIY Cowboy Shower or …. Hot Magic: The magic is LP gas and battery power.  A dirty, grumpy cowboy or glistening, stinking horsewoman is transformed after a hot shower to pleasant camp companions. Yet, miles and hours of trails separate the hot shower from those in need.  Some fortunate folks have a full LQ horse trailer.  A quick hot shower is available in a cramped compartment sometimes masquerading as a potty.   The operative word is quick.  Most RV style water heaters are limited to 5 gallons.   Cowboy showers may be warm or cold water.   Read More….
Cimarron horse trailer integrated hay podCimarron Integrated Hay Pod and Reverse Load LQ, and air suspension has got to be the cats meow! Transwest has the ultimate horse trailer from Cimarron Trailers. You know the reverse slant load in a sudden stop lets the horses thigh brace on the wall instead of their neck. And going down the road, your horses heads are looking at the fields and houses past the right lane instead of the 18-wheeler and Harley’s in the left lane. Then the full width of the rear of the trailer can be all tack room. The built in hay pod seals out the weather to protect your expensive More…..

Transwest Summit Hauler trucksHurt locker truck comparisonDo you need a one ton or a two ton? One class wins acceleration, the other wins braking; Starting in 2011, the big three raised the GCWR from 26,000 lbs to 30,000 lbs on 1 ton dually pickup trucks. That’s CDL territory, GM quit making C4500-7500. So they need to rate their 3500 high enough to compete. But Ram and Ford aren’t going to just set in the sidelines.

Each new model pickup truck year has an increase in towing capacity. What is the limit? Truck manufactures don’t know, they work off demand. The new SAE trailer towing standards that start in 2013 will help, but at some point with 20,000 lb plus trailers, you are going to need a heavy truck with big brakes. More…

New Truck Repair Technology comes to Horse Trailers

If you follow my articles, you know how big a fan of new technology I am. At the new Transwest Truck Trailer RV facility, is an awesome machine called a Road Simulator. Looks kind of like a dyno, but does use rollers to test brakes rolling resistance and balance. Transwest uses it to test all their new horse trailers so they are ready for your roads. It can find just a torn axle seal leaking on the brakes. It would surprise you how many “new axles” on new trailers are over greased, limiting your trailer brakes ability. With the kind of traffic we pull trailers in, testing brakes becomes routine. And worn suspension maybe be causing your rig to.More….

Behind the Scenes of MrTruck’s segments for Equestrian Nation on RFD TV

If you go to the National Western Stock show this month, you’ll see a horse trailer on it’s side. Not something you see every day. Makes it easy to see how the floor and roof are made. The Cimarron horse trailer is in Transwest Truck Trailer RV’s booth. That thinking outside the box is why I go to Transwest to shoot video for my segments. I’ve been in many trailer dealerships and factories around the country and haven’t seen a shop equipped like Transwest. If they don’t have a piece of equipment they need, Andrew Lyons (General Manager) will build it. More….

Finally ABS brakes for trailers !Fast, smooth and safer than any brake system we’ve tried. We took our test trailer to the race track, smoked the brakes, burnt the seals and proved how dramatically superior hydraulic disc rotors, electric-hydraulic actuators, ABS modules and a trailer brake controller that networks with your trucks computer can be. Electric brake drums didn’t stand a chance in our side by side comparison. A big step toward safer trailering on our crowded highways and unpredictable weather patterns. Share this detailed report about the difference ABS trailer brakes can make.
Cimarron’s New EZ Angle Hay Rack Ladder Do you use your hay rack? Most horse trailer rack ladders are not easy to climb nor are they very heavy duty. Cimarron knows how to make ladders that don’t bend or flex, one of the best factory hay rack ladders in the business. You can lift your bales, gas can, bags of feed and spare tires right up the ladder. Having the ladder pull away from the trailer at 22 degrees makes it less work. It’s hard to climb straight up a barn style ladder. More….

GanderLock, when you’re serious about Protecting your Gooseneck Trailer and TackProtect your trailer as well as your expensive saddles, bridles, tools and flat screen TV.Goosenecks are different from bumper pulls, if you just lock the coupler, the thief’s loosen the set bolts, slide out your adjustable coupler and put their own back in and away goes your investment. Think about what happens when your trailer gets stolen, arguing with insurance companies, banks and the police. I’ve been lucky not to many things stolen, but when it happens it makes you sick.
