  • How to Install High Country Plastics Horse Trailer Water Caddy
  • The High Country Plastics Horse Trailer 25 Gallon Water Caddy # SL-25 features a triangular shape that's designed to wedge into the corner of a trailer. You will then simply use the included strap and bolt to secure it into place. The strap will get tightened around the tank itself and the lag bolt needs to be drilled into the trailer wall to hold it upright.

  • Recommended Rubber Trailer Mat For 6 By 12 Foot Trailer
  • We don't have a single mat that is confirmed to fit that size trailer. I recommend using 3 of the Ribbed Rubber Trailer Mat - 48" x 72" # 4872SM to perfectly fit your trailer. You could use a bonding agent to make these 3 mats into 1 if you desired. This mat is 1/2 inch thick.

  • How to Attach the Premium Horse Trailer Side Pad to the Trailer Wall
  • There is not a specific method for attaching the Horse Trailer Side Pad, # HTP60BK, to the trailer wall. You can use the Trailer Horse Pad Screw, # PS-8, but like you said it will puncture the material. Another option you have is to apply adhesive to one side of the horse pad to attach it to the trailer wall. I would recommend using a strong adhesive that can be purchased at your local hardware store. Be sure the back surface of the pad and the mounting surface of the trailer wall...

  • Recommendations For A 40" Long Side Pad That Is 12" Tall
  • Though we do have the Horse Trailer Side Pad # HTP1260BK that is 60" x 12", the widest 40" option we have will only be 9" ( # HTP40BK). What is going to be your best bet is to go with the Horse Trailer Escape Door Pad # HTP12BK, which measures 12" wide x 9" tall and turn it to be 12" tall by 9" wide. You can then run 4 of them side by side to get you 36" or 5 of them to get you 45". Not the prettiest solution, but it will work.

  • Availability of a 12 Inch Wide by 24 Inch Long Enclosed Horse Trailer Pad
  • I have included a link to all of the trailer pads we carry below. We do not have an exact match for a 12 inch by 24 inch pad, but the closest is the Horse Trailer Breast Pad, # HTP24BK, that you have referenced which is 9 inches wide by 24 inches long. Another option would be to use 3 Horse Trailer Escape Door Pads, # HTP12BK, and turn them 90 degrees so they would be 12 inches wide and 27 inches long when mounted right next to each other.

  • Can Surehoof 36 x 22 Foot Rubber Mat Be Used on a Ramp
  • The # 3622RM mat could be used for the purpose you've described, but if moisture got under the mat or if the mat were placed on a wet surface, there'd be a danger of the mat slipping on the ramp. If you could devise a way to affix the rubber mat to the ramp, that would work well for you.

  • Is the 24 Inch Horse Trailer Breast Pad Pre-Drilled

  • Recommended Floor Mats for a Horse Trailer to Improve Traction
  • The best option we have for your horse trailer is the Ribbed Rubber Trailer Mat part # 3622RM for 36" wide x 22' long or part # 4872SM for 48" wide x 72" long. These mats can then be cut to fit the exact size of your horse trailer's floor. The ribbed design will allow for the best traction in slippery conditions but I can't say they are completely fall/slip proof nor would any floor mat manufacturer be able to make that claim. These mats are also very simple to clean so as long as you...

  • How to Install Redline Horse Trailer Pads
  • When replacing your horse trailer pads, be sure to pad all dividers and walls. The pads are constructed of a very durable vinyl sewn over 2" of foam onto rigid cardboard. They stand the test of time and hold up in all climates. There is no need to add additional backing to the pads, but if you choose to do so, you can mount them to 1/4" plywood and then mount them to the walls of your trailer. The pads are surrounded by a 1" border where there is no padding. This is where you will...

  • How to Attach a Horse Pad Inside a Trailer
  • Are the holes you are referring to threaded? If so then you could drill a 1/4" hole into one of our pads (see below) and then use a bolt to attach them to the wall. If the holes are not threaded then it may just be best to use a few phillips head screws on the outside border to affix the pad to your divider. I have attached a photo to show the method above. 60" long x 9" wide - part # HTP60BK 40" long x 9" wide - part # HTP40BK 24" long x 9" wide - part # HTP24BK 12" long...

  • Can the Horse Trailer Breast Pad Be Attached Directly to Metal
  • The Horse Trailer Breast Pad part # HTP24BK could easily be attached to a metal divider using self tapping screws like part # 1131832. I would agree that generally speaking the breast pads are attached to plywood but I don't see an issue attaching them to metal either.

  • You may be able to re-cover your existing side pads but by the time you get all the materials to do this (vinyl fabric, glue, staples) it may be more cost-effective to replace them with the Redline Horse Trailer Side Pad # HTP40BK. This black vinyl pad measures 9 x 40 x 2-inches thick and has a cardboard backing and 2-inch thick foam to protect your friends when you're on the road.

You could nail, tack, or glue the mat down to your trailer, it just depends on how you want to install the mat. The mats are pretty heavy though so if they are going on a wall glue isn't going to hold them. Also, since they are ribbed the surface area for the glue to attach to is limited as well.

The # 3622RM is thinner at 5/16 of an inch, while the # 4872SM is a half inch thick. The mats are durable, cab be trimmed to fit and are easily removable for cleaning.

  • Replacing Material on the Ramp of a 2007 Sundowner Horse Trailer
  • The material that is on the ramps of your 2007 Sundowner horse trailer is a type of artificial carpet that is typically pretty easy to install and inexpensive to replace if you stick with the carpet. Usually that type of carpet will be glued and nailed or stapled to the ramp, but if you do not see any screws, staples or nails, it may just be glued. The problem with the artificial carpet is that the longevity is usually not as great as rubber mats or pads. Dirt, mud, grime and other...

  • Should SUREHOOF Ribbed Rubber Mat Be Used With Ribs Horizontal Or Vertical
