Horse Trailer Maintenance
The transportation of horses can serve as a challenge for stables and farms that are moving them to or from their home base. Among the reasons for moving horses can be some form of required medical treatment or a trip to compete in a competition. It can also simply be for the owner to ride in a free and unencumbered area.
For those who perform these tasks on a regular basis, the importance of regular horse trailer services and maintenance can often address issues that may evolve into much more expensive propositions without immediate attention. However, there can be instances in which unexpected pitfalls occur and horse trailer repair becomes a necessity.
Coach Specialists has the ability to tackle the variety of repair and maintenance issues that can happen to your horse trailer. Our Texas horse trailer repair team can also take your vehicle from a basic utility trailer to a comfortable second home on wheels, like an RV or camper.
You may not think of horse trailers as being luxurious transport vehicles, but many offer short-term living quarters for humans in an area separate from the horses, just as would be found in an RV or camper. To keep these areas comfortable and operating smoothly, Coach Specialists can install, upgrade, maintain, and repair both major and minor components of a trailer.
Trailering horses in Texas and surrounding states means a lot of heat and sun during the day, and some cold evenings and nights. Air conditioning and furnace units are essential for the comfort of human and equine passengers, and interior plumbing makes all the difference when staying overnight. Appropriate and durable flooring, walls, countertops, and other finishes add visual appeal and contribute to keeping the trailer on the road longer.
Appliances and storage are also incredibly important for living in such a small space. Even for a day trip or one-night stay, being able to cook basic meals and store personal belongings converts a basic horse trailer to a second home on wheels for both horses and people. The professional team at Coach Specialists can install and repair cabinetry and appliances in horse trailers in Texas. Whether you choose basic wall cabinets or fancy slide-outs, we can help. We also know about the newest and most cost-efficient appliances on the market, and can recommend the perfect microwave, refrigerator, cooktop, and other features needed to equip your space.
Exterior Structure and Cosmetics
Maintaining the exterior of a horse trailer is as important as the interior. Beyond looking good while on the road and at events, damage to the outside of the unit can cause long-term concerns. Coach Specialists’ horse trailer repair in Texas can reverse the damage done to exterior panels due to a collision or ongoing wear and tear from regular use. Our team of experts can also inspect a roof and determine whether any damage can be repaired, or if a total replacement is advised.
Tire Safety and Repair
Moving along means having tires that can withstand all of the weight being carried. In the case of a horse trailer, that means having specific tires in place to handle the job. In addition, keeping track of the tire tread levels can offer warning signs that need to be addressed quickly.
Having such routine horse trailer maintenance performed by Coach Specialists sounds basic, but far too many people are too focused on moving to and from their destinations to pay a great deal of attention to such a vital aspect. Overlooking such matters can often lead to tires going flat, or worse, blowing out on a highway, a scary proposition that should never enter the picture.
Horse trailer repair can also include servicing and fixing its brake system, though this is another area where routine maintenance on a regular basis can address an abundance of potential problems. Paying attention only to the brakes of your transport vehicle, and not the trailer, can leave your horse feeling the impact of every stop you make.
Such stops can come abruptly, which can cause injury to horses. That's a needless oversight and one that could lead to tragedy. Coach Specialists’ staff of trained mechanics will make sure that both the transport and the horse trailer are fully prepared for every stop made.
