2007 Circle J Lightning Deluxe Lightweight Aluminum 3 Horse Bumper Pull Trailer
2007 Circle J Lightning Deluxe 3 Horse Slant Load Bumper Pull Trailer
Haul 3 Horses, Hay, and your Tack Room with your Standard Half Ton Pickup!
You are looking at the lightest aluminum 3 horse, slant-load, bumper pull trailer out there that doesn't sacrifice strength or outfitting in the least. This trailer can haul 3 large horses or up to 6 cows behind a standard half-ton pickup truck at an empty weight of only 3,050 lbs. With a GVWR of 9,990 lbs., that gives you 6,940 lbs. of cargo carrying capacity, which most modern half ton pickup trucks will pull with ease. The dual 5,200 lb. light torsion axles with electromagnetic 4 way brakes give you some serious hauling ability with light and easy control. This trailer has hauled six of my full grown cows up over the Continental Divide in the winter with my 4.6 liter 2005 Ford F-150 (shown in pics) with no problem. I am also including an Equal-i-zer weight distributing hitch with the sale to make it ride perfectly behind any tow vehicle.
The stalls are wide and tall enough ( 7' 3") for your large horses, with ample ventilation and protection. The two padded dividers are removable for your stock as well. Insulation, triple wall construction, safety bars, screens, and padding in the horse compartment ensure that your animals will stay comfortable and safe on their journey to your favorite trail-head (or auction in the case of the bovine riders). My 17 hand thoroughbred had loads of headroom to spare. The divider jail-bars also make it easy to keep the feistier occupants from snapping at their neighbors. I have also installed 2 safety break away ties in the two forward stalls which will be included along with the 3 feed bags, a few extra parts, and everything shown in the photos.
The carpeted tack room is well sized and outfitted to carry your saddles, tack and back-woods packing gear. It also makes a great changing room and porta-potty room for the ladies. I've even slept in it several nights while on the road.
The hay rack up top was installed during the winter of 2011, has cedar planking (w/pine crosses), and through-bolted aluminum supports. It will easily hold 6 bales of hay (2X2X4 small bales). I carried a 320 gallon stock tank up there along with some other gear on occasion.
Though I've hauled this rig from California to Montana and on to Florida, it is in excellent shape and saw fairly light use in between long trips. I maintained it impeccably and had it stored in my Barn in Montana for a while. The tires, brakes, and floor-boards are all in great shape (see pics). All of the photos (except for the hay rack pic in the barn) were just taken on 18 January 2013.
This is a fantastic outfit that I'll be sad to see trailing off into the sunset; however, now that we sold the ranch, it's time to let it go to serve another cowboy for many years to come.
