For more than 25 years, Bison has been building sturdy horse trailers featuring luxurious living quarters in them. Today, Bison is the nation’s largest manufacturer of horse trailers with living quarters, offering models built of all steel, all aluminum or a combination of both. While other horse trailer manufactures may construct the “box” of their unit, most have to ship their trailer, often states away, to have a separate company construct and install the living quarters. The extra mileage and contracted work on these trailers results in extra cost to you, the consumer.

bison-trailers

In addition, that method of building horse trailers results in different warranty plans for different areas of the coach. That requires you to work through two different companies to resolve warranty issues when they occur. Bison Coach has each and every horse trailer constructed entirely in their own state-of-th-art production facility, including the living quarters. The result is not only a better built horse trailer, but increased savings for you as the consumer.

Whether you are traveling the rodeo circuit or trail riding, Bison has a model and a size that will perfectly fit your family’s needs and budget! The Trail Hand and Ranger steel constructed trailers offer some of the most economical models on the market, while the Trail Boss and Laredo are some of the most affordable aluminum constructed models. The Silverado and Premiere aluminum constructed models offer the most affordable luxury on the road. Why pay more when you can get the same amenities, options and luxury for less?

When it comes to buying the right trailer for your personal use or for your business, a question we receive often is “what do I look for when buying a used trailer?” Unlike buying a used car where you check the mileage, carfax, service reports and others, used trailers don’t have that luxury of a carfax history report. On the other hand, if the trailer was maintained by Golden Gait Trailers, then a trailer service history report will exist. So how does one go about buying a used trailer the right way?

Just like you would inspect a used car, you can inspect a few things on a used trailer for sale as well! This short checklist is something you can take with you on your next journey that will ensure you’re buying a used trailer the right way!

  • Determine what type of used trailer to purchase.
  • Determine the maximum load you plan to haul in your trailer.
  • Determine the size trailer you will need. Make sure it is compatible for your hauling needs and that the trailer isn’t too big for your tow vehicle.
  • Check tire condition. Look for wear, dry rotting. Also look for even tread-wear for proper alignment.
  • Check for exterior cosmetic damage looking at these areas: side sheets, corners (especially the rear). Check the roof if possible and lastly, check that the lights are working.
  • used-trailer

  • Check the wheel bearings by grabbing the tires with your hands and shaking it. If the tire is too loose, this means the bearings need to be serviced.
  • The age of a trailer is important. A trailer that is older than 10 years typically has very little to no loan value to the banks.
  • Compare the purchase price of the used trailer to a new trailer. Be aware of what comparable new trailers cost. There are many different quality levels.
  • Be aware of supply and demand. There are typically very few used trailers on the market to choose from and sale quickly.
  • Once you select the perfect trailer, consider making it unique by adding customization options. Just like a new trailer, you too can customize your newly purchased used trailer!

As Trailer and RV specialists with over 30 years experience in the industry, we understand your expectations and the investments you make, you want to make sure you’re getting the best and most reasonable product for your money right? So why would buying a used trailer be any different? Take the guess work out of buying the right used trailer and ask our Trailer and RV specialist to assist you. Call us at 800-895-3276 or email us here to get started.

US TravelRVing isn’t the only way to road trip, but it’s certainly the most comfortable. Budgettravel.com recently sent an RV novice out on to the open road in the hopes that he could come up with some tips for beginners. He did and here are the spoils of his venture.

First, he suggests using RV-specific GPS to navigate your route. This will calculate any overhead clearance and other restrictions so that you don’t get tripped up on your voyage.

Second, don’t rely on the RV for hiking or getting close to your sightseeing destinations. Try to bring along bikes or rent them at your destination. Use the RV as your campsite and then either walk, rent mopeds, or cycle to trailheads and footpaths.

Third, Walmart is great. Most of the time, Walmart will let trailers park in their lots overnight, barring any signs that prevent overnight parking. Obviously this is not an optimal final destination, but when you’ve been up all night getting from one site to another, it’s a nice alternate to have in your back pocket.

Fourth, recharge your batteries. If you’re camped out somewhere in the RV for a few days, be sure to turn on the RV just to keep your comforts running.

Finally, get the tutorial on how to empty your holding tank. Forgetting to add chemicals to the black-water tank will be a mistake you – and your nose – won’t soon make again.

For more tips on the best way to use your RV, or for remodeling and repair, contact the experts at Golden Gait Trailers.

If there is a luxury to be experienced inside of a vehicle, the chances are very good that it can be found onboard some model of recreational vehicle or trailer. As we often discuss here on the Golden Gait Trailers blog, RV manufacturers are always finding new ways of providing enhanced comforts to the inhabitants of their vehicles.

However, there is one area where recreational vehicle technology has been lagging behind other types of vehicles, and it’s one that may be adding thousands of dollars to the fuel costs incurred by an RV owner every year.

Racecars have long used carbon fiber exteriors to provide rigid, durable structure to a vehicle while drastically reducing on weight and aerodynamic drag. As this article published by Gizmag discusses, one recreational trailer manufacturer is blowing past the competition by offering a completely carbon fiber model, which offers some amazing amenities and features.

Global Caravan Technologies (GCT), the manufacturer of the CR-1 Carbon camper, designed this model with input from aerospace technicians and researchers with Dallara, a manufacturer of IndyCar racecars. Even though its structure is bonded together without any screws or fasteners, GCT believes that this model will improve on the durability seen in other high-end trailers. They also report that the design should improve fuel economy by 150 percent over models of a similar size because of its reduced weight and low center of gravity.

Yet this model certainly doesn’t skimp on the living space quality. The layout of this trailer includes a rear entertainment lounge that seats eight, a kitchen, a bath suite and sleeping room for six people. Although much of the interior also features carbon fiber, the seating incorporates a lot of leather, offering inhabitants a very comfortable arrangement for situating themselves.

Golden Gait Trailers is pleased to be able to offer much of the highest quality available in recreational vehicles, trailers and more. Whether you’re a first-time buyer looking to break into the market with a used model, or you feel ready to invest in a high-end market brand new to our lot, we have the inventory that will match your needs perfectly.

In these days of an increasingly global economy, many are choosing to be smart with their spending money and try to buy mostly American-made products. Not only does this keep U.S. dollars here in our own country, it can also help prevent against making an unwise purchase that ends up being a regrettable decision.

This is especially true of vehicles, as our country recognizes some fairly strict emissions and other regulations compared to other regions of the world. Here at Golden Gait Trailers, we’ve heard too many stories about foreign imports that turn out to be much more trouble than their cheap parts are worth.

Take for instance this story published by AutoBlogGreen about fines levied by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency against a Chinese recreational vehicle manufacturer and its affiliates responsible for importing its products to America. American Lifan, the China-based vehicle manufacturer, was found responsible for importing thousands of vehicles, which weren’t compliant with emissions standards, including about 1,000 RVs.

The fines levied against these companies are somewhere in the range of $300,000 to $500,000, which will pay for bonds that ensure models from upcoming years will be compliant with emissions regulations. Unfortunately, as the above story indicates, this is not the only instance of foreign RV imports failing to meet U.S. clean air standards, as more than 12,000 recreational vehicle imports have been found to fail federal guidelines between 2007 and 2013.

When you buy American, you have the added insurance benefit of knowing that your manufacturer has built your RV to meet the standards of our country. Here at Golden Gait Trailers, we stock an incredible inventory from domestic RV manufacturers, and the foreign models we do sell all come from reputable brands. We make it a point to only include EPA-compliant RVs in our stock. Call us today to learn about the best foreign and domestic models that we have available at our facility.
