Check out the Advantages and Popular Options below to see why you may want a Wilson Slat Style trailer.
The double-walled slat style walls are constructed using aluminum extruded tubes, which are interlocked and bonded together to form a very strong and durable wall. By forming the wall in this manner, Wilson has created a very smooth interior wall without any vertical posts plus there are no areas that will collect animal waste and become a biosecurity problem.
Without vertical posts, the interior walls of the Wilson slat style trailer are some of the industy's smoothest. Wilson Trailer also takes great care to eliminate sharp edges on their gate connections to help curtail animal bruising.
The patented catch allows the rear door to be slammed closed and secured. When closing the rear door, the spring-loaded catch grabs ahold of the rear door, allowing the operator more time to engage the lock rod and secure the door the rest of the way shut. Feel more confident and more protected with the Slam Catch.
With Ranch Hand's aluminum sub frame not only are the weight savings big, there are no painted steel sub frame components under the trailer to lose paint, cause rust or electrolysis…the enemy of aluminum trailers.
Full-length running boards on both sides, ahead and after the fenders, allow plenty of standing room for load inspection.
Wilson uses the hardest alloy available with the highest diamond tread height to create a long-lasting floor with excellent traction for livestock. Four corrugations run the full length of the trailer yielding a floor with great strength.
Roof skin stretched to maximum efficiency makes it uncommonly tough for extra life.
Wilson manufactures their heavy-duty gates with fully framed aluminum construction and hinge grease zerks to reduce wear, operate more smoothly, and last longer. The full-width hinges reduce sag, lessen movement in the sidewalls, and provide for stiffer connections.
Water, road dirt, gravel, and animal waste – Nothing can easily get to and damage the trailer's wiring. It's enclosed and protected.
One interior light is standard on models 22 feet and shorter. Two interior lights are standard on models 24 feet and longer. These bio-secure lights are made by Grote exclusively for Wilson Trailer.
The rear of the trailer can drag when pulled across uneven surfaces. This scraping action can roll dirt and gravel up into the sub frame and potentially pulling the rear of the trailer out. To guard against this, Wilson puts in a full width skid plate across the rear of their sub frames.
Wilson divide gates are designed with minimal deflection so they will remain reliable and easy to operate for the life of the trailer.

Sealed access door available on the side or the front of the nose.
Lighted sign on the nose – Lettering is included
.110" thick flat tread plate with crossbars on 9" centers is optional. (9” U-tube crossbar spacing is also optional)
