There’s nothing like a rejuvenating nap half way through a long day of showing. Our gooseneck horse trailers combine the convenience of mobile sleeping quarters with top horse safety features. You’ll get the ultimate package!
Double D’s Gooseneck horse trailers are not only structurally sound and designed for your horses’ safety, they are also sold at a factory direct value price.
There are several factors to consider when choosing your type of horse trailer:
- Do you want a horse trailer sleeping quarters? Spending hours or days at a horseshow can be exhausting. One of the top advantages of a gooseneck trailer is the useful space that overhangs your truck bed. This ‘gooseneck’ space is the perfect place to take a power nap or spend the entire night to avoid the expense of a hotel. During camping trips, you can ditch the tent and stay close to your horses throughout the night.
- How many horses will you haul? Determining how many horses you need to haul in your new trailer is vital information. If you only need to trailer one or two, then a bumper pull horse trailer may be a good fit for you behind an adequately equipped tow vehicle. If more horses make you merrier, then explore our gooseneck options.
- What are your tow vehicle capabilities? If you are planning to use your current tow vehicle, you’ll need to determine how much weight it can safely haul. Ideally you would want to purchase the trailer first and purchase a new tow vehicle afterwards to safely handle the load. However, this is not always possible. If you are restricted to your current vehicle, then make sure it is able to handle a gooseneck trailer’s higher tow rating requirements.
NOTE: Under no circumstances should you exceed the manufacturer's rated tow capacity of your vehicle. If you are confused or unsure, ask a specialist at Double D Trailers for help.

- Safest Rear Tack in the Industry: It’s no wonder many horses give their owners a "fit" loading on traditional slant load horse trailers. These trailers usually have a stationary tack storage area blocking half of the trailer’s entry way. This leaves a narrow and scary entryway for both horse and handler to use. Even if your horse is brave enough to enter, the confined space can be extremely dangerous if something unexpected happens. With our SafeTack design, the enclosed tack storage area can swing out like a second door leaving a wide open loading zone. It makes the horses happier - which makes the humans happier. (learn more)
- V-Style Aerodynamic Gooseneck: This design provides a greater turning radius behind your tow vehicle and increased gas mileage. Never purchase a gooseneck trailer that has a flat front as you may run the risk of damage to your truck in tight turning situations. Returning home with the back glass of your truck shattered can put a damper on what should have been a fun trip.
- Gooseneck Clearance: Have you ever seen a Gooseneck Horse Trailer being towed with the front end jacked up? Yikes! Not only will your friends talk about you behind your back, but it can cause uneven tire wear and a bumpy ride for you and your horses. At Double D Trailers, we insure you have adequate clearance over the tailgate of your truck so the trailer will tow level. Plus, this will help avoid crushing your truck's side panel on uneven terrain.
- Custom Designed Trailers: Each of our horse trailers is made to order. You can customize the design to fit your specific horses, add special features, or remove items that you won’t need. These customizations include things like increased head room over the sleeping area or your choice of exterior graphics and colors. Make the trailer one of a kind to match you and your horses’ personalities.
- Nationwide Flat Rate Delivery: Don’t worry if you don’t live close to our manufacturing facilities. We won’t make you drive cross country to pick up your finished trailer. We have flat rate delivery anywhere in the country. Plus, we can arrange for delivery if you live in Canada or Australia.
- Top Safety Features: The SafeTack design is just one of our many innovative safety features. We put you and your horses’ safety above everything else. Check out information on features like Z-Frame, Rumber flooring, SafeKick, SafeBump, and how we create a ‘horse-friendly’ environment inside the trailer.

Our patented SafeTack Reverse design is perfect for horses who don't like to load. Remember, horses don't like to walk into a dark and confining space. And, they REALLY don't like to back up to get off the trailer.
Many of our customers appreciate the true walk-on-walk-off configuration of our SafeTack design. It's helped horses across the country -- who used to take hours to load -- learn to load with ease.
This video is from our friend Penny. Her horses used to take "at least one full hour" to load. Now, watch them load without fear -- in a matter of seconds!
The sleeping quarters at the front of your gooseneck trailer will become a shaded retreat on those long and hot days at the show. Stock your area with cool beverages, a comfy mattress and supplies to get you through your day.
As with the rest of your new trailer, this private dressing room is completely customizable. Many choose to add increased head room over the gooseneck sleeping area. You can also add custom clothing hooks, storage compartments, or wall grid organizer panels to keep your equipment organized and clean.
If camping is your thing, you will love using the gooseneck area as a home away from home. You can leave the leaky tent at home and use the sleeping quarters for overnight trips. An interior access door back to the horse area will allow you to easily check on your horses.
Stay cool with an overhead powered roof vent that will create a pleasant breeze. Add an extendable awning to the side of your trailer to create a shaded area to enjoy the day.
Oftentimes, it’s the ‘little’ things that make the biggest difference. From hitch to bumper, we’ve looked at every detail to make it safe, easy to use, and durable. Here are just a few of those little details that help us create a higher standard for horse trailers.
- “Horse Friendly” Interior – No horse likes a hot and dark trailer. That’s why we’ve painted the interior of the trailer white to reduce reflected heat. We maximized air flow with large windows and tubular head dividers. A fully insulated trailer and ceiling help control the temperature to prevent excess sweating and dehydration.
- Z-Frame Technology – Brittle aluminum horse trailers are not strong enough to withstand the force of an accident. They crumple like an old soda can. Our patented Z-Frame design uses a special zinc alloy to provide superior strength in a lightweight design. The walls of your new trailer are made of rivet-free 16-guage galvalite that is 5 times stronger than 0.04 weight aluminum. Overall, you’ll get a lightweight trailer that is stronger than aluminum and provides the same durability.
- Easy Window Latches – We’ve moved the latching mechanism on the trailer windows to a lower position so they can be more easily reached.
- Self-Watering Tank - Add a self-watering tank system to your trailer so your horses can stay hydrated throughout the trip.
- On-Board Cameras – Do you want to keep an eye on your horses during the trip? Add an on-board camera so you can watch them while you travel.
- No Rattle Interior – We’ve secured all loose components inside the trailer to cut down on noise and stress for the horses.
- Tail Lights – The trailer’s rear tail lights have been moved to a higher position for maximum visibility for following traffic.
- Easy Lift Ramps – You won’t strain your back lifting our spring-assisted ramps.
And so much more…
Karen Jones of Newnan, Georgia had this to say about her new SafeTack 2 horse slant gooseneck horse trailer:
“I love my new Double D Trailer. First and foremost, I have never experienced personalized customer service of this caliber ....ever, for any product I have purchased. Brad made it so easy and a lot of fun to 'design' my trailer. He worked with me on my own ideas and gave his opinion on what would work and what wouldn't...what would look good and what wouldn't!! Brad arranged for my new trailer to be delivered from the factory in Wisconsin to my home in Georgia. The quality of the workmanship on the trailer is outstanding. I got their own patent pending reverse/forward facing SafeTack 2H Slant Gooseneck. Brad designed a hay/feed room for it and I enlarged the dressing room. I can't wait to haul my horses in it, it is so much roomier than either of my previous 3 trailers! I have one problem loader that loves being able to walk forward in and OUT! I highly recommend Brad and Double D for a great trailer designing experience, extraordinary customer service and a fabulous product!”
Terry and Nancy Jennings of Dunlap, TN were also relieved that their ‘problem loader’ was happier in their new 2 horse gooseneck horse trailer:
“Our “problem loader” walked onto the trailer the first time and every time since. I think the step up for him makes him commit to getting on, but the openness of the trailer is really what convinces him it’s safe to load. A lot of our friends have stopped by to see the trailer and they’ve all been impressed with the design features and fit/finish. We trailered home 13 hours and it pulled beautifully no issues, much easier to pull. I love the "Rumber" flooring, no slipping and much easier to clean out. The Safe Tack in the rear of the trailer is by far the best on the market. Easier to load your tack and tack up your horses when you arrive at your riding destination. We compared the Double D trailers to everything else on the market and there is no comparison in our opinion. We love our new trailer and look forward to many great adventures with our horses.”
Janet Wallace of Elbert, Colorado loves the flexibility of two loading options when camping with her 3 horse gooseneck reverse slant load:
“I love this trailer. The horses are very comfortable in it. The variable load/unload options are extremely handy. Many trailheads I trailer to have non trailer friendly parking lots. Being able to load from the side or back and unload either way makes it very safe. I know I will enjoy this trailer for many years to come. Thank You Brad and everyone at Double D.”
