The New Logan Coach Trailer, Alive and Well a division of Titan Trailers
Logan Coach Horse Trailers: A horse trailer to get excited about! My last Logan Coach trailer review, I called Logan the most improved horse trailer. They did it again, truly building a horse protection transport that also protects itself from your horses for lasting good looks. Just as our country is climbing out of the recession, Logan Coach took action to become part of Titan Trailers and be one of the economic survivors with volume buying power for supplies and freight. 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.
As reviewed on RFD TV
Tubular metal framing is galvanized inside and out and coated with Vortex rubber coating like your truck bedliner. Talk about protected ! Besides your horse going potty on your trailer, you have acid rain and the magnesium chloride on the roads in the winter replacing salt for melting ice. Corrosion is the long term enemy that Logan Coach builds trailers to withstand. All Logan Coach horse trailer framing are galvanized inside and out with Flo-Coat protected triple-coat corrosion protection steel that is then covered with Vortex rubber coating. Vortex is similar to pickup truck sprayed on bedliner which dramatically increased structural integrity on a truck bed, becomes armor on Logan’s frame. This Vortex armor on the steel tubes and inside the trailer’s corrugated galvanized sheet metal, also is a noise dampener.
I talked to the Vortex company at SEMA, saw the video of a cement cinder block coated with Vortex and dropped from a 5 story building, it bounced! In the display was a tile coated on one side with Vortex and then beat with a hammer. It stayed together. My thinking was a rubber mat on the kick wall was better for protection, but now I’m convinced that Vortex can handle anything a horse can do to it. Vortex rubber coating is amazing stuff, horses can kick it and dodo on it and it stays put. Like an alien membrane protecting the steel. It’s even reparable! I want to coat my truck with it. Pictures (above left, right) show Vortex sprayed in fender wells, frame, bulkhead and gooseneck.
Logan’s outside skin is painted aluminum. So no paint booths, no over spray and orange peal paint. Tread Brite Gravel Guard on bumper pulls stops road rocks. http://logancoach.com/
Logan armor, all the steel is galvanized Flo-Coat and coated with Vortex rubber so any nicks in the Vortex is still protected with the Flo-Coat zinc. Outside skin, roof, bows, cove, fenders, running boards and stalls are aluminum. Now the part that the horse abuses the most as well as the road abuses, is the floor; exclusive “Whiz Proof,” drains the floor urine. Of course it’s coated with Vortex rubber coating on wood floors and aluminum floors. Below are the pictures of the aluminum floor, galvanized Flo-Coat steel frame with aluminum planks spaced for drainage with a angled wedge to prevent splash back, then all that is coated with Vortex rubber. Talk about armored !
Logan Coach Horse Trailers: Whiz Proof Floor, as Good as it Gets
This has to be one of the longest lasting floors in the industry. That’s where resale value starts. No place for electrolysis with triple-coat corrosion protection.
Stainless steel nose or painted aluminum, and wedge nose or tapered. All Logan’s have aluminum exterior skin.Using 3M VHB bondingsystem (red tape right) for less rivets, smoother look and easier to repair. The gooseneck nose is Flo-Coat galvanized sheet metal then aluminum sheets are bonded on the nose You can see in the picture above, the Vortex rubber coating covering the gooseneck, bulkhead and jack. Logan Coach models range the spectrum with the high end XTR to the economy Rebel all with aluminum skin, galvanized steel, Vortex and torsion axles. http://logancoach.com/

Pooling engineering techniques with Titan Trailers has improved Logan’s trailer building efficiency. Continuing to build their own Prestige Living Quarters with factory warranty, factory support and now Logan Coach is taking on outside Living Quarters repairs, refurbishing or custom building Living Quarters in all trailer brands.

Gen-Y Hitch heavy duty adjustable drawbar for today’s powerful trailering trucks: These steel adjustable, multi-ball, multi-height, pintle, or weight distributing hitch is the highest trailer rated hitch I’ve seen. The one I’m using from Gen-Y Hitch is rated for a 16,000 lb. trailer with a 2 inch shank. For Class V receiver, 2.5 inch shank, trailer rating goes up to 20,000 lbs. Their newest hitch is the Torsion Flex Hitch that isolates how your trailer bounces verses your truck for a smoother ride. Read the review...Weigh-Safe:Do you know your trailer tongue weight, asks the judge? On a bumper pull trailer, if you have too little tongue weight, the trailer can sway and be dangerous. If you have too much trailer tongue weight, your truck or SUV will squat excessively, aim your headlights to the stars and stress your trucks rear axle, brakes and suspension.
