In the world of equestrian trailers, the folks at Cherokee feel their name means state-of-the-art. They claim the reasons are inherently evident in an across-the-board commitment to product quality-a commitment that infuses every aspect of the Cherokee approach.
They start with material and design. As for industry standards, Cherokee doesn't believe in them; they perform to our own self-defined, rigorous standards.
Features include aircraft strength aluminum alloy throughout, extruded aluminum floor planks with I-beams on five inch centers, four-sided structural upright post, a top rail with a 2½" radius and 5 extra strength ribs to give maximum roll over protection (patent pending) and living quarters that lack for nothing in conveniences.
However, the finest materials in the hands of the unskilled would indeed be an empty exercise. Cherokee Trailer people, from engineer to artisan, are experienced and expert in their respective roles. Their degreed engineers are continuously investigating, researching and testing in the unrelenting search for improvement. In this regard, all Cherokee employees, regardless of position, are viewed as contributors and the possible source of a better way of doing things. This kind of free flow of ideas makes for an atmosphere whose driving force and sole underlying principle is not to rest on their past achievements.

Trails West horse trailers are constructed of high quality Electro-galvanized steel that they feel is far superior to aluminum in overall structural integrity. Properly engineered steel horse trailers are much stronger and more durable to the flex and stress caused by the road.
With properly prepared Electro-galvanized sheet steel and Dupont automotive primer and polyurethane paint, Trails West can produce high quality horse trailers for less cost than aluminum trailers and provide the most value and wide range of options in the industry.
A common misconception is that aluminum horse trailers weigh 40 to 50 percent less than steel trailers. A Trails West horse trailer is engineered to use heavier steel in high stress areas and lighter steel in lower stress areas. Trails West horse trailers are triple-wall constructed, which protects the outside skin from damaging kicks coming from the horse area while providing a smooth sleek outside appearance. A triple-wall constructed Trails West horse trailer will typically weigh only 10 to 15 percent more than a comparably equipped aluminum trailer.
Pictured is their living quarters model. Trails West has recently introduced their premium line of living quarters that has the look and feel of an $80,000 living quarter at a price tag under $50,000. See the new Painted Desert package and Royal Cabin Package at a dealer near you.

Pictured is Turnbow's four horse "Reverse" slant. The "Reverse" slant is a wonderful design that allows you to "walk" the horses on via the side ramp and "walk" them off the rear with no backing out or turning around.
This is an all-aluminum trailer. This trailer is also available with full living quarters. Additionally, Turnbow Trailers is pleased to announce a 20-year warranty on their exclusive aluminum floor. They also have available an additional "cushion" called the Soft Ride Floor that is placed between the floor and the rubber matting to offer a softer, more comfortable ride for your precious cargo.
Turnbow Trailers manufacturers a complete line of trailers from a simple two horse to the largest living quarter trailers with slide outs. Turnbow Trailers is a family-owned company that has been manufacturing quality trailers since 1960. They can provide whatever you are looking for in a trailer.
Every Turnbow Trailer also proudly carries a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty. Their trailers are not mass-produced or mass marketed-every trailer is designed with the individual buyer in mind.
