About Western Trailer

40 Years and Still Rolling Strong

Ever since Western Trailers built what was quite possibly the first aluminum cattle trailer in the West back in 1969, our reputation has been built on quality, innovation and service. As we expanded into outside-frame flatbeds and grain hopper trailers, we made it our business to thoroughly understand the delicate balance between payload and profit. Along the way, the idea that "light weight pays" has become our guiding philosophy. It's made us one of the nation's leading trailer manufacturers, and given our products the highest resale value of any trailer on the road today.

“I appreciated working along side of experienced welders and fabricators of 20+ years. The skills I took from them will carry me through my engineering program and into the field. And old welders are hands down the funniest people. Experiencing what it takes to assemble a 53' trailer in 5 hours was eye-opening. It also showed me the delicate relation between engineers and fabricators. In a four year engineering program nothing could prepare you to design something perfectly, and fabricators will make that very clear to you. I loved the experience, and would recommend to any engineering student.”
