Featherlite Trailers unveils new “Legend Edition” horse trailers

CRESCO, Iowa (March 12, 2015) – When horse owners asked for a trailer that could rival the legendary toughness of the west itself, Featherlite Trailers listened. The result was the Legend Edition horse trailers.

The Legend Edition gooseneck horse trailer Models 8542 and 8582 feature heavy-duty square cornered streetside drop down feed doors, as well as a square cornered dressing room door and side unload door. A full length all-aluminum running board lets a horse owner check on his or her horses without worry. LED clearance lights every 4 to 6 feet on a Legend Edition’s top rail are brighter and give the trailer more visibility. Each Legend Edition horse trailer also has one exterior tie ring per horse per side, letting horse owners secure all the horses they brought along. 

The interior of the Legend Edition has also gotten some heavy-duty upgrades. A sturdy aluminum brush tray comes standard in the dressing room. So do one or two 6 hook aluminum halter bars, depending on the length of the trailer. One of the halter bars is also removable to give horse owners more options when storing their gear.

The Legend Edition also has features that make storing gear more convenient. A durable all-aluminum swinging blanket bar can be locked in one of five positions, and the saddle rack not only lets saddles ride securely while traveling, it also gives the saddles a much-needed chance to air out.

“The Model 8542 and Model 8582 Legend Edition horse trailers are among the most rugged horse trailers on the market today,” Justin Queensland, Featherlite National Sales Manager, said. The Legend Edition made its debut at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. It will be arriving on dealer lots this spring.

Featherlite is the nation’s oldest aluminum specialty trailer brand, having built its first aluminum trailer in 1973. In addition to horse trailers, Featherlite manufactures stock trailers, car trailers, utility trailers, ATV trailers, racecar transporters and other specialty trailers.
