New Featherlite stock trailer 8271 offers impressive carrying capacity

CRESCO, Iowa (July 18, 2013) — What do you get when you cross a gooseneck hitch with a semi stock trailer? If you’re Featherlite Trailers, you get the Model 8271, one of the most versatile, high-capacity stock trailers on the market. 

The innovative trailer was designed for farmers and ranchers, who often need to haul a herd of cattle or passel of hogs in as few trips and with as little hassle as possible. The Model 8271 helps solve this problem by combining the chassis of a 40’ semi stock trailer with an all-aluminum subframe and a gooseneck hitch. A lack of internal fenders further increases the Model 8271’s impressive carrying capacity. The gooseneck hitch not only improves maneuverability but also allows the Model 8271 to be hauled by a wider variety of vehicles than a trailer with a semi hitch would allow. Farmers and ranchers can also customize the Model 8271 with options that include halogen load lights, colored side sheets and aluminum wheels.

“Farmers know that time is money,” Justin Queensland, Featherlite U.S. Dealer Sales Manager, said. “The Model 8271 helps them save both.”
