Ranch Hand 5700 Stock Trailer

Our most popular gooseneck stock trailer.

The Ranch Hand 5700 line of aluminum gooseneck livestock trailers has all the essential features in an affordable package. The trailer is available in 5 popular lengths with a limited but convenient list of optional equipment.

Quality components designed to make the Wilson Ranch Hand lighter, stronger, safer and more operator friendly result in a trailer trusted to be more durable for a longer period of time.

  • Aluminum sub frame
  • Patented rear door Slam Catch.
  • Full-length running boards
  • Heavy-duty construction
  • Superior full-framed gate construction

Slam Catch

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 new Slam Catch.

Aluminum Sub Frame

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.

Running Boards

Full-length running boards on both sides, ahead and after the fenders, allow plenty of standing room for load inspection.

Side Panels

Wilson Trailer incorporates embossments into the smooth areas of their stock trailer's side panels. With thorough testing and customer feedback, the embossments have proven to greatly increase the panel's strength and ability to resist denting. Visual appeal is also enhanced, making Wilson goosenecks supreme, long-lasting trailers.

Wilson pioneered the concept of a fully riveted gooseneck trailer to the market. Riveted construction allows the trailer to flex when needed without the worry of cracking welds.

Interior Walls

On the inside of the trailer, the embossments have a minimal depth so animal waste will not adhere to them. The trailers remain easy to clean out, maintain and have better bio-security.

The smooth interior walls are also better to help guard against animal bruising than interior slat side designs.

Formed Posts

Precision-formed vertical posts are spaced closer together for extra strength. One of the industry's most unified body designs.


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.

Interior Lights

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.

Skid Plate

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.
