Cimarron Trailers define custom horse trailers. With 250 options making 56 models, it’s easy to have it your way. Why not, Cimarron trailers will out last your trucks.

Equine Motorcoach™ in lots of ways. Tom and Carolyn Stinnett have been putting the finishing touches on our 2012 transport that is touring the United States at a variety of horse shows. They have added the Saddlematic 180 that not only swings Saddlematic180 degrees out of the way when not in use, but electrically lowers and lifts for easy saddle loading and unloading. EUREKA Specialty Products, LLC, worked with the Stinnetts to engineer and manufacture this innovative mechanism. More on Saddlematic….

 

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…

 

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

 

 

Standing out from the crowd to maintain product quality and customer service is what has made this company successful for the last 30 years. Transwest only carry premium lines of products: Cimarron and Logan Coach horse trailers, Outlaw Conversions & Summit Haulers. Also used hauler trucks for towing the big trailers. With a 22 bay service shop open until midnight, Transwest is franchised for GMC, Freightliner and Western Star. For RV Coaches equipped to tow trailers, Transwest sells American Coach, Georgetown, Itasca and Renegade.   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….

 

 

Kodiak Hydraulic Brakes, Quality and Life Saving Power:I tow my horse trailer around the country to horse expo’s. Generally folks towing trailers are more cautious, especially towing horses. But in cities traffic backs up and even when you try to leave proper stopping distance in front of you, cars will just fill in the gap. So now what do you do? On my last trip from Denver to Oklahoma, on I-25 during rush hour, there was of course an accident, the cars in front of me slammed on their brakes. So I had to slam on my brakes, and guess what? I could stop as fast as the cars. Read the rest..
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.

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….

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…

Step Above trailer ladder. I’ve said it before, most folks don’t use their hay racks. Mainly because it’s too hard to get to. A big share of factory hay rack ladders don’t cut it. Too narrow, flimsy or just plain scary.

Step Above is a slide-out aluminum ladder that makes the roof of your trailer an easy trip and safe. Having the right angle slanted away from the trailer takes the work out of climbing a ladder just like your step ladder you use around the house. Step Above slides out to the ground, just the right slope for climbing. More…

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 Tack

Protect 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.  Read  the Review…

2011 Heavy Duty GM’s, More Power, More Frame and More Suspension:

For 2011 GM went massive truck improvement, as in frame, suspension, payload and towing ability puts Chevy and GMC HD trucks at the top of their segment. It’s improvements we all want and of course the power and fuel mileage have also improved. The new suspension keeps the power under control and tires planted on the pavement. The new exhaust brake adds stopping power to grade shifting from the Allison tranny and larger brake rotors this year. Read the review….

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.

  “Oh mom, it is just awful!  Those poor horses are just standing out there in the all of that snow.  They are probably freezing!  Can we put coats on them like the horses in the barn?  Please?”  The kindhearted requests came frequently from our foster kids.  Most of these youngsters have never been on a farm and do not know much about farm life, but it warms my heart to hear their requests.  It opens doors for discussion and learning, and best of all, the animals can crack through the shell that develops around More…
