Tired and Matted

Last weekend I purchased 5 new tires for the trailer.  They are Range Load E, Special Trailer tires.  So glad to have shoes that are secure on my trailer.  The other ones were already older when I bought the trailer and you could see a little bit of dry rot as in tiny cracks.


I also got some RV tire covers to keep on the tires when the trailer is not in use.


Today I also picked up three new matts.  These matts will need to be cut for the interior of the trailer of course.  What's neat is they have little nubbies on them to help horses keep traction while being hauled. 

 

Now if only the windy and rainy weather would cooperate so I can get working with my mare on loading!

Maybe I've said it before. but the job you & Steve have done on that trailer is just so good that I have to praise it again.
My trailer could really use some tire covers. :-(

Thanks again. Glad to hear it! I am seeing tiny areas where rust stains are coming through, it's going to always be a maintenance thing to keep on top of but then again aluminum trailers corrode as well. Amazon had these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00192JGN0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and I was really impressed with the quality. It comes in sets of two and fit perfectly on my tires and secured easily. Just measure your tire and ta-da! Perfect protection!
