Britains' largest horsebox builder, Equi-Trek, continue to build on their already succesful range of patented side loading horse trailers. The new Trail Treka 'M' has been developed to offer the huge benefits of side loading in a light weight trailer which has a gross weight of 2000kg enabling it to be towed legally and safely by smaller 4x4's and some cars.
The Trail Treka 'M' has a gross weight of 2000kg, whilst the Trail Treka 'L' has a gross weight of 2500kg for those wishing to carry larger horses
Despite it's impressive technical advancement, the all important aesthetics have not been compromised.
With stylish good looks, aerodynamic design, ease of towing and side loading, the large side ramp is beautifully balanced and pressure assisted which makes loading and unloading effortless even with only one person.
The innovative patented design achieves the greatest internal width for the benefit of your horse whilst keeping the external dimensions less than most other trailers for ease of towing.
The horse area is completely enclosed to protect horses from traffic and wind noise. This reduces stress and creates a greater feeling of safety for the horse.
The low, wide ramp provides easier and safer loading as the horse is encouraged to enter a light, spacious area with less feeling of confinement.
The ramp is situated on the nearside so that the handler remains between the horse and the exit whilst the horse is being secured. The reduces the risk of being trapped in a confined area by an excitable horse.
Also, the horse is being lead from its nearside which most horses are more accustomed to, so the gives the horse more confidence when loading.
Unloading is made easier because the horse exits the trailer by walking forwards down the wide ramp, elimating the need to turn in a tight space or go backwards.
RAMP SAFETY DOORS
These doors help to guide the horse up the ramp and into the trailer, preventing them from stepping off the side of the ramp, reducing the possibility of injury. All Equi-Trek trailers come with safety loading doors as standard.
Suspension is very important and even more so when carrying livestock.
The independent swinging arm suspension on Equi-Trek trailers was specifically selected for its smooth and quiet ride quality as well as its exceptional stability.
This modern type of suspension is far more advanced in terms of ride quality and noise suppression than the old fashioned leaf spring system.
WHEEL AND TYRES
Each wheel has an individual brake to provide powerful control of the trailer as well as incorporating an automatic reverse feature. To compliment our suspension system we use low profile tyres which help to reduce flex in the tyre walls. This reduces the inclination for the body to sway which improves safety and the ride quality even further.
The body is constructed from strong, durable panels with aerodynamically designed fibreglass front moulding. This type of construction ensures a long trouble-free life with low maintenance.
LIGHT AND VENTILATION
All-round opening windows and roof vent provide ample light and ventilation whilst adding to the feeling of internal space.
The horse stands on heavy duty shock absorbing rubber which is laid over a strong aluminium floor with adequate drainage.
The fully adjustable partition can easily be altered to accommodate different sized horses and can be perfectly positioned for your horses comfort. Each trailer has the added benefit of a full width breast bar.
