Designed to meet the needs of both livestock and horse owners, Featherlite’s stock combo trailer works hard with you. Equipped with slant load or straight load options and a skid-resistant aluminum floor, it can be configured to suit your specific hauling needs.

Flat deck combo trailers are great for hauling heavy equipment and vehicles like cars, trucks, ATVs, etc. They are ideal for construction and farming because of their durability, size, and ability to carry much weight.

They are designed with an open platform at the rear and a closed cabin in front, which makes loading these types of equipment very simple and fast. The front cabin can also store tools and fuel for a quick and convenient workstation. These trailers are often built with steel frames, suspension hangers, and side rails for additional strength and durability. The flat deck area at the rear can easily accommodate large skid steers and mini excavators and is perfect for carrying equipment, fuel tanks, and other large tools and supplies.

When purchasing a flatbed trailer, it is important to consider the type and quality of materials used for the frame and bed and the overall size and dimensions. Check for welded connections, reinforcement, and a high load capacity to ensure it can handle the specific items you plan to haul.

If you are looking for a lightweight option, look at aluminum options. These are durable, offer more load securement options, and are easier on the tires than steel. Consider a steel option for a durable, heavy-duty option less expensive than aluminum. However, it will be heavier than an aluminum or combo trailer and may require a larger truck. It will also have a lower resale value.

The deck height of a flatbed trailer is another crucial consideration. Most flatbeds have a maximum legal commodity width of 8’6″—anything over this, and you will need to get a state oversized permit. Look at a drop deck trailer if you need to haul a wider load.

One example of a good combination trailer is the Wilson Roadbrute AF-1080 all-aluminum combo trailer. This unit has a patented aluminum side rail system, multiple securement options, and a rated 80,000 lb. max distributed load capacity. Another good choice is the Doonan Titanium all-aluminum flatbed trailer. This trailer uses Doonan’s Chaparral II flatbed design but with lighter welded aluminum main beams, front plates, and cross members to reduce the total load weight without affecting the maximum capacity rating.

If you’re looking for a trailer that can haul large equipment and tools without compromising safety or capacity, then a half-enclosed combo is the right choice. These trailers feature an enclosure in the front, which keeps your tools secure and dry, and a flat deck in the back for hauling larger equipment such as skid steers or small excavators. They are available in v-nose or gooseneck configurations and can be equipped with loading ramps and a walk-in door for easy access.

Unlike new cars, which lose value when they leave the dealership, trailers generally hold their value and maintain a high resale value when in good condition. Investing in a quality trailer—open utility, enclosed cargo, or dump—will save you money on rental fees in the long run. Plus, when you’re done using it, you can sell it at a fraction of what you paid.

When browsing our inventory, the trailer size is measured in inches, so you can more easily understand how much space you have to work with. For example, a 77×18 tube utility trailer is 77 inches wide and 18 feet long. This trailer size determines the maximum load capacity of the trailer and whether it’s rated to pull a specific vehicle.

Combo dump trailers are becoming increasingly popular with businesses that need to transport large or heavy items. They’re easier to operate than big dump trailers and ideal for moving mulch, dirt, and gravel. Plus, they’re more affordable than full-size dump trailers and can help you save on delivery costs.

A Schnabel trailer is a specialized heavy-duty trailer that can transport oversized and irregular loads. These trailers are frequently used to move sections of towers for energy-producing wind turbines and can have a maximum payload of several hundred tons. They’re also commonly used to transport large industrial equipment, machinery, and bridge beams and columns for construction projects.

Stock combo trailers offer the best of both worlds for livestock and horse owners looking for a durable, versatile hauler. They’re designed to handle the rugged demands of transporting livestock and horses and are available in bumper pull and gooseneck options. Various factory options are also available for customization to make your trailer your own.

Bumper pull trailers connect to the receiver hitch on the rear of your towing vehicle and are ideal for smaller herds or short-distance trips. On the other hand, Gooseneck trailers are equipped with a larger center gate and are perfect for hauling large amounts of cattle.

The type of trailer you choose will depend on the size and breed of your livestock, as well as the capability of your towing vehicle. To determine the best trailer for your needs, consider the number of animals to transport, their weight, and whether or not they’re horned. Using this information, you can select the right trailer to transport your livestock to their destination safely and easily.
