MrTruck Recommends: Transwest  Truck Trailer RV Selling Hart, Logan & Cimarron TrailerWest.com

Andrew Lyons, General Manager of Transwest Truck & Trailer is what I would call a trailer guru. I've interviewed him about cutting edge trailer technology and visit him often for the latest and greatest innovations for safer towing with the growing size of trailers and increased power in trucks. Andrew grew up on an Australian ranch, 150 miles from the nearest town. This made him a resourceful independent thinker, having to repair his vehicles without running to the parts store. And this is what makes Andrew the right person to repair your truck and trailer right the first time. Andrew came to the US to train horses and understands what horses like in a trailer too! I pick who advertises on my website and I only pick one per category. It's easy for me to recommend Transwest Truck & Trailer and be the only trailer dealer on my website. Call Andrew Lyons 1-800-909-7071 email alyons@transwest.com TrailerWest.com

Quality Horse Trailers, Largest Inventory, Decades of Experience, Towing Knowledge, and a large selection of Specialty Tow Vehicles, this is what I call a Complete Trailer Center. Read about each category below. Selling Hart, Logan and Cimarron horse trailers.

#1 Horse Trailer Sales, New and Used, Steel & Aluminum

#1 in Hart aluminum trailer sales. Transwest Truck and Trailer, is the largest "Hart" horse trailer dealer. I live in Colorado and see Hart horse trailers all the time, on the highway and at horse sales and shows. From the quality and strength that I see in these aluminum trailers, you will be hearing more about them in the rest of the country soon! Manufacturing trailers since 1968, a year before we landed on the moon, Hart offers custom built trailers as well as a full line of models including a trailer for Miniature horses.

The floor on these trailers are interlocking aluminum tongue and groove, with I-beam cross members on 6 inch centers. Try to find that on any other trailer! All Hart roofs are 5/8" thick "ENCOR" fiberglass reinforced structural panels with a R2 thermal value for the ultimate in temperature, quietness, and strength. Tubular frames and upright posts instead of C-channel, with stainless steel bolts used everywhere and double framed doors. Even the rear butt bar folds to the left instead of the right, to avoid a backing injury.  When Andrew orders your trailer as he does for the trailers he has in stock, he picks the best axle rating and tire rating to fit your trailers individual loaded weight. Ask him about the low profile goosenecks available from Hart. Call Andrew Lyons 1-800-909-7071 email alyons@transwest.com TrailerWest.com

Come see the new Aluminum XT and XTR horse trailers from Logan.

 Logan Coach horse trailers are designed to protect you and your animals while traveling. It's easy to recognize the quality design, attractive appearance, all  galvanized steel construction. The only manufacturers in the world to use galvanized sheet metal and structural tubing. Galvanized steel offers greatly enhanced rust protection over standard black steel. This means you can be assured that our trailers will remain both structurally sound and looking great for years to come. With Logan Coach, you get the strength of steel with long-lasting durability and performance other companies simply canít match.

Formed fit walls, precise engineering and advanced building techniques allows Logan Coach to bend sidewalls around  vertical support columns. Not only does this give their trailers stronger vertical seams, it also keeps welds on the inside of the trailer walls, giving our trailers a cleaner look and a smoother finish. Enhanced Structural Integrity, Logan trailers are engineered for safety and feature thicker sidewalls and additional vertical support columns. These enhancements assure increased structural integrity in the event of an accident or rollover.

A better roof, Logan Coach is the only trailer company to build a roof using acrylic adhesive. Other companies use VHB tape, an inferior quality bonding agent that attracts water and one that, over time, will draw moisture into the seams and weaken the roof itself. Logan uses the latest in modern automobile manufacturing technology to create a bonded roof and sidewalls. Notice how much cleaner and smoother the roof is because there are no rivets and no outside welds.

3-Year Paint Warranty, Logan Coach uses high quality automotive paint and we confidently warrantee the paint on our trailers for a full three years. Our competitors can only warrantee the paint on their trailers for one year. How can we make such a promise? Auto industry experts and clinical tests have shown that paint typically ceases to adhere to a surface because the surface under the paint has begun to deteriorate. Because our paint is applied onto durable, rust-inhibiting galvanized steel, you can be confident that the paint on a Logan Coach trailer will look fresh and new for many years to come. Remember, itís whatís on the inside of your trailer that keeps the outside looking good.

Larger stalls (with adjustable slam-latch dividers) the stalls in a Logan Coach trailer are among the very largest in the industry meaning that you can transport any horse with ease (even a Warmblood!) They are so confident you will see a difference that we invite you to bring in your own horse and see the difference for yourself! Separate flooring in tack rooms, Logan installs separate flooring in our tack areas and our trailer compartments. This means water, urine, and manure will not slide under the bulkhead wall and get your expensive tack and other equipment wet and muddy. Call Andrew Lyons 1-800-909-7071 email alyons@transwest.com TrailerWest.com

New Thinking, Strength and Beauty!

The world is a better place because Henry Ford decided to quit working for Thomas Edison and struck out on his own to invent the first assembly line. Cimarron Trailers carries on the American tradition of starting their own company to prove they can build a better custom progressive horse trailer. While there are older trailer companies stuck in their rut, living off their history, Cimarron is not one of them. Cimarron custom aluminum horse trailers has the combination of folks that weren't happy resting on laurels. I've seen this with many aftermarket companies from air filters to hitches. Energetic entrepreneurs want to improve on products and sometimes have to go out on their own and prove their ideas can work. That's what Michael Terry did, the president of Cimarron Trailers. Working for many horse trailer manufactures, gave Terry broad manufacturing experience. His vision to build the best horse trailer, drives Cimarron's remarkable growth that started in 2000.

Other key managers as well as the majority of the work force, started with other trailer manufactures. The Chickasha Oklahoma area is rich with experienced horse trailer workers. Cimarron employees were asked to give their input on trailer design including key extrusions (components). The building philosophy behind Cimarron, is designing the extrusions to fit like Legos. Pre-formed extrusions are designed for more efficient manufacturing.

The t-frames are one piece tail to tongue, with an off-set 3 inches on top and 6 inch on bottom. This allows for lower jams on side doors without cutting the frame and more protection below for water tanks. Each floor joint is double tongue and grooved interlocking with 6 " centers for a solid strong floor. Floor extrusions have ribs for traction.

The rear floor extrusion is one piece. It works as a skid plate also. All interlocking like Lego's. This makes every trailer uniformly strong, You'll know you are standing in or looking at a Cimarron just by the solid feel and how well the extrusions fit.

#1 Truck sales made for towing large Trailers.

Transwest sells used trucks and the big ones. I know when I upgraded to bigger trucks, I never got to work on them much anymore . Go look at the size of those axles, brakes, trannies, engine brakes, diesels, tires, fuel tanks and then count the gears! In Colorado we have these tall hills with snow on them year-round. A truck with a loaded trailer pushing it, can get some speed on the fast side of the mountains! It will surprise you how much brake pad you can use up, when you're scared to death!

Trailers are growing, both horse and RV. It takes a larger truck to stop and control those heavy trailers. There's a reason Transwest Truck & Trailer stocks so may larger trucks, dually one-tons are popular. It will surprise you how much better braking and handling the larger trailers is with duals on your truck. Transwest has duallies from F350, 3500's to the F550, C5500's and larger with custom beds. Don't forget to ask about the right truck accessories which Transwest Truck & Trailer has, such as exhaust brakes, diesel chips, automatic wheel balancers and all types of hitches.

The "Big Three" truck makers from Detroit, all have 4-wheel disc brakes standard now. I was glad to see this. Disc brakes fade heat better, brake better and are cheaper and easier to replace. I live in a mountain state. Going down hill will test brakes in a hurry.  The brake dust falls threw the rotors instead of sitting on the bottom of your drums and you don't have to pull the hubs to work on them. Dexter has a disc brakes with calipers on both side of the rotor, like performance cars have.
  • Fixed caliper, opposing piston technology as used in racing for superior durability
  • Self-adjusting calipers eliminate manual brake adjustments
  • Brake pads can be replaced without removing the caliper
  • Improved resistance to brake fade
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Dexter disc brake mounts to the axle using the same flange position as drum brakes

Outlaw Conversions, One more thing, I saw on my visit to Transwest Truck & Trailer, is the Outlaw LQ horse trailer conversions. There is a big difference in what you see between an average RV trailer and what Outlaw Conversions does to a horse trailer! I wish my house had the quality Oak cabinets that were in this horse trailer. I go to a lot of RV shows a year, looking for the latest and greatest, and I've seen several $100,000 plus RV's that didn't have Outlaw's kind of quality! Some of their upgrades belong in Faith Hill tour bus! Ask Andrew about them, Call Andrew Lyons 1-800-909-7071 email alyons@transwest.com TrailerWest.com
