The 2+1 Straight Load Gooseneck Horse Trailer is a popular model with several attractive features. It comes with two straight load stalls and a third box stall towards the front that works well as a show day prep area.
Although we will happily build this model to suit your needs, we also recommend you check out our patented SafeTack 3 Slant Load Horse Trailer. It provides many of the same conveniences as the 2+1 model while providing several safety upgrades.
Top Features on the 2+1 Straight Load Gooseneck Horse Trailer:
This Trailer is Ideal if You Want a 3 Horse Straight Load Trailer.If you are determined to buy a straight load trailer, then your 3 horse trailer options are a bit limited. This configuration lets you load three horses with the use of two traditional straight load stalls and a third “box” stall in the front.
Box Stall for Show Day or “Hang Out.”The box stall can be used as a show day prep area or a place to let your horse just hang out rather than being tied to the outside of the trailer.
Top Safety Features. Like most of our trailers, this model comes with our standard safety features like Z-Frame construction, insulated horse area for temperature control, Rumberflooring option, tubular head dividers, easy open windows, SafeBump roof, and SafeKickwalls.
There are a few drawbacks to this 2+1 gooseneck model listed below. You may want to consider our patented SafeTack 3 Horse Slant Load Trailer as an alternative.
Some Considerations with the 2+1 Straight Load Gooseneck Horse Trailer:
Longer Trailer Length. The 2+1 gooseneck horse trailer is going to be around 22 feet in length. For some people, this length trailer is harder to drive and maneuver. For comparison, our SafeTack 3 Horse trailer is around 18 feet in length.
Front Box Stall Safety Concerns.As with all 2+1 trailers, the front box stall horse is going to be standing without close fitting dividers to use for balance and bracing. Our slant load trailer designs solve this problem by creating an individual stall for every single horse.
Horses Can Bother Each Other.When you purchase your 2+1 trailer, we will suggest that you include a full height horse barrier between the front horse and the two rear horses. Without this barrier, the horses may nip and kick at each other.
Tack Storage Limitations. The 2+1 trailer only has tack storage in the forward dressing room located near the gooseneck portion of the trailer. Some of our other trailer models have space for a completely separate “mid-tack storage area.” Or, our SafeTack models have an additional tack compartment that swings out like a second door in the rear corner of the trailer.
Box Stall is Not Always Ideal for Larger Items. If you have visions of using the front box stall for storing large items like carts, motorcycles or even ATVs, then we want to give you an even better option. We’ve built several trailers with specially designed modifications to fit things like carriages, motor vehicles, and even a canoe!
Stall Size Consideration.The front box stall can be a bit limiting on space, so a larger breed horse may not fit comfortably. As a better option, we’ve designed several Warmblood horse trailers that work well for larger breeds.
Being able to monitor your horses while traveling as well as see what is behind your trailer can be beneficial. Add this feature which includes two cameras (one for your horses, one back up or rear view camera). Includes a wireless monitor which you plug in to your 12V supply inside your tow vehicle. Operates wireless.
Front stall escape door (NOTE: Walk thru door is standard from the horse area to the dressing room. Use this option if you want a door at the horses head, typically used at shows for accessing horses) specify one door on one side or one door on each side for a total of (2) doors
All sliding windows include a screen. And the sliding portion of your drop down is screened as well. However, when you fold down your window and leave the bars in the folded up position, there is not a screen to protect your horses eyes from debris and bugs. Select this option to add a screen for your drop down feed windows. It includes a zipper so you can unzip for feeding if needed. Priced per window.
Enjoy and relax underneath your new patio awning. Awnings are available in a variety of configurations and hardware but we only offer the two step. Why? Because it is the easiest to operate and will set up easily. Watch the video.
Experience ultimate luxury and be the talk of all your friends with the electric awning. Simply press the button for the awning to set itself up or break down automatically. Includes a wind sensor so it will roll up in case of stormy weather. NOTE: this is an upgrade charge from a standard awning price.
Want to really have an eye catching trailer? Add aluminum wheels in place of the standard gray painted wheel. Not only do they look sharp but you will have a wheel that doesnt rust and looks great for years to come. Pricing includes five aluminum wheels and a spare tire cover on your spare.
Battery Interior deep cell 12 Volt wired to charge from your truck. This deep is installed inside the dressing room and powers your interior lights, fans, and load lights, without being plugged into your truck. It is wired so that your tow vehicle will trickle charge it when driving. You may add the exterior battery bracket if you prefer it to be mounted outside.
Brush Tray on dress door or Tack door.(If you are purchasing a slant load, there is plenty of space to throw in brushes in the rear Safetack. Use this option to add a brush tray on your dressing room door up front or tack door NOTE: Cant be used with screen door option) Brush tray design may vary from photo.
If you are using the inside of your dressing room for a tack area, you may want to add some bridle hooks or hangers on your wall that separates your room from your horses. Carpet this wall to prevent bridles and other items from scratching as well as providing a noise dampener
Add a hydraulic jack in place of the standard Jack. These systems are very reliable and you can raise and lower your trailer at the touch of a button. (requires single battery option) Note the video shows dual batteries which is not necessary
Gooseneck step and storage chest: This storage trunk and combination carpeted seat, is installed against the jack sheet wall and runs the full width of the trailer or 3/4 width depending on your layout. It also provides an easy step up into the gooseneck area. This storage bin/seat takes up 1 foot of depth in the floor space. Optional footage (at least one foot of length) is often added to the dressing room to better accommodate this addition without using up floor space.
One saddle rack comes standard per horse. Example: if you are looking at a 3 Horse model, 3 saddle racks are included. This feature allows you to add an extra saddle rack to your saddle tree, or front dress if saddles are located there.
Suggestion: This small 6in tall gate is located on the wall just below the gooseneck and flips up to form a barrier that will keep items from sliding out of the GN onto the floor. Works well if you are planning to store items in your Gooseneck area. (actual design may vary slightly from photo)
Most tack rooms are a nightmare when it comes to organization, some even downright junky! (I can see you nodding your head in agreement). Add this wall organizer grid to your new trailer which allows you to utilize the vertical wall space. No more stuff in the floor. After you add the grid, you may order separately bins, containers, hooks, racks, mirrors and other accessories that will attach to the grid. The accessories are very reasonable and available at many online tack store websites.
Water Tank-25 gallon triangle with stand for inside the dressing room.Suggestion: This smaller water tank (14 in per side of triangle and 56 in. tall) easily tucks into corner of the dressing room. You may fill your tank from the top and use your water from gravity feed. All you need is a water hose.
