If a gooseneck trailer gives you goosebumps than a bumper pull horse trailer may be a perfect option. Whether you are planning to tow with a small size SUV or a larger pick-up truck, these trailers are best for those who want to ‘hitch up and go.’
Safety is likely your biggest concern as you look at new bumper pull horse trailer. Here at Double D Trailers, we have the most innovative safety features on the market. Our goal is to create beautiful custom horse trailers designed specifically for your own personal needs.
Choose from a variety of straight load and slant load designs each packed with quality craftsmanship, individualized options, and safety features crammed in from hitch to bumper.
Check out some of the top benefits you’ll find with Double D Trailers:
Double D Trailers is different from the other brands because we put an enormous emphasis on safety. Features like SafeTack layout, SafeKick walls, Z-Frame structure, Rumber flooring, and SafeBump ceilings all work in harmony to protect both you and your horse during travel.
We think about the little things that will make a trailer feel like a safe space for your horse:
Is the trailer interior bright and airy?
Are the interior dividers firmly secure to prevent stressful rattles during travel?
Are the trailer materials and paint colors going to create a safe and comfortable interior temperature on the hottest of days?
Does the horse handler have room to safely maneuver around the horse during loading and unloading?
Is this trailer going to protect your horse in the case of an accident?
These are just a few of the questions we ask each time we create a custom bumper pull horse trailer for one of our customers.
Here are a few of our top safety features:
Each type of trailer configuration has its own advantages and disadvantages. First, think about how you plan to use your new trailer. How many horses are you planning to haul? Are you going to need a dressing room or tack storage area?
Straight load trailers tend to cost less and often allow more room for larger horses. However, many horses are hesitant (or can refuse) to "back out" of a straight load. Plus having to drop in a butt bar behind an unruly horse can be dangerous for the handler.
Our slant load horse trailers have eliminated many of the safety concerns typical for other brands. Since Double D Trailers specializes in custom horse trailers, these stalls sizes can be adjusted to fit your particular animals.
Slant load horse trailers make better use of space with a shorter wheel base. It is often easier to include features like dressing rooms on these models while preserving driving maneuverability. Read more about straight vs. slant load models here.
There's usually a really good reason why your horse won't walk onto your horse trailer. Chances are he's frightened of the confined space. When you add the narrow door on a slant load trailer, things look even scarier!
We’ve created the SafeTack design to eliminate the narrow (and ‘scary’) door found on most slant load designs. Instead, our SafeTack models have an enclosed tack storage area that swings out like a second door. This allows a wide open entry way for loading and unloading with additional escape doors and horse ramps available on the sides of the trailer.
If you choose to add a side door and ramp, your trailer suddenly has a true walk-on-walk-off configuration. In other words -- your horses will never need to back up off the trailer!
Many of our customers have found huge improvements in their horses when using our trailers compared to their older models. In fact, our friend Penny (whose horses are shown in the video below) used to take at least a full hour to load her one horse. Read more about Penny's story here.
Just because you only have a 2 horse bumper pull horse trailer doesn’t mean you can’t have a spacious dressing room.
Our designs allow for the addition of spacious front dressing rooms where you can store overnight supplies, show equipment, food, and chairs. Your saddles and sweaty blankets can be stored separately in the locked SafeTack storage area at the rear of the trailer. This will cut down on smell and leave you plenty of room for human comforts.
Customize your dressing room by adding extra hooks for a hammock or special equipment. You could even including a cot or mattress for hassle free camping. Add a roll out patio awning to transform your trailer into a mini shaded retreat for you and your horses.

Nancy E. of Cedar City, Utah purchased a warmblood sized 2 horse bumper pull trailer with a dressing room. She shared, “Great, great service!! Although it was scary ordering on line (never having seen the trailer) but it is everything DD said and more!! Could not be happier with an "unseen" product.”
Safety was a main priority in ordering a trailer for Christy I. of Atlanta, GA. She purchase a SafeTack 2 horse bumper pull trailer with a dressing room. “I LOVED all of the safety features and options that Double D has included. I wanted to know that my horse was as safe as possible on the road and I feel that Double D Trailers has created a very safe product that provides as much protection as I can get in a Bumper Pull.”
Curt and his wife in Abilene, Kansas looked at a wide variety of brands before settling on Double D Trailers. When asked about their specific needs, Curt replied, “Safety, Safety, Safety....The fact that it was a really well built and great looking trailer was a plus too. The excellent customer service right from the beginning was incredible. We were kept updated constantly, and our needs were the priority not Double D's needs. We found that refreshing.”
