Improvements in technology make things better in our lives. This is particularly true with respect to horse trailer construction. Innovations include aluminum construction for lighter weight and lack of surface and frame rust (which reduces trailer life, affects appearance and resale value); rubber torsion axles providing a lifetime of low vibration suspension; radial tires for less vibration and greater durability; one piece aluminum or fiber glass roofs for longer life; and 20 Year Warranty Shelby floors.
Shelby Trailer Service, LLC operates out of Comanche Oklahoma, and manufactures trailer flooring using recycled tire rubber and plastic products. Ronnie Shelby, in the mid 1990s, decided to venture into extruded composite lumber for the livestock trailer industry. It took time to develop a flooring product that could withstand the abuse, wear, and tear in a heavily used stock trailer. In the late 90's the first Shelby cross lug livestock board was introduced.
Shelby boards are tough, durable, and easy to clean-no floor mats to move. Bed the horse area like a stall, returning home, remove wet bedding and manure. Every 10 weeks, pressure wash the boards. The surface texture will remain fresh for life.
Do yourself a favor and buy a trailer with Shelby flooring, your horse will thank you every trip you make.
