Manufacturer Spotlight: Bison

Go where ever the trail leads in a Bison Living Quarters Trailer. Packing everything equine enthusiasts seek in models that combine affordable luxury for you and safe transportation for your horses, Bison Coach is the go-to-choice knowledgeable equine travelers, offering seven diverse product lines ranging from simple and lightweight to large and luxurious.

Since 1984, Bison has been building horse trailers known for their quality, strength, and affordability. In 2003, Bison once again took the lead in bringing the entire equine experience together under one rolling roof as it entered the living quarter market.

Not content to just build a “box” and ship out its horse trailers to be retrofitted with living quarters by another manufacturer, Bison Coach took the bit and committed to become a “one stop shop” for living quarters trailers, converting its Milford, In., manufacturing plant to construct its trailers from nose to tail.

By building its trailers under one roof, Bison saves its customers thousands of dollars from not shipping trailers – sometimes across the country – to have living quarters build and installed.  Those miles and all the workers involved add up to thousands in costs to consumers – and sometimes different warranty plans for different parts of the trailer. By building every trailer entirely at its production facility, Bison guarantees a better built trailer, backed by a hassle-free warranty.

Today, as part of Thor Industries, Bison continues to be the leading manufacturer of gooseneck living quarter trailers in North America, with a diverse line of aluminum and steel horse trailers. Whether you are traveling the rodeo circuit, trail riding, or hitting the show circuit, Bison Coach has a floorplan to fit your budget and needs.

The diverse Bison brand line of gooseneck living quarter trailers includes the aluminum over steel Trail Hand and Ranger and the all-aluminum Trail Boss, Laredo, Silverado, and Premiere.

Living quarter trailers are available in two, three and four slant load models with safety and comfort features Bison is known for, including padded stall dividers with gate springs, heavy-duty rubber matting, three-way vents above each stall, molded saddle racks and escape and pass through doors, exterior load lights. Tack areas with molded saddle racks, bridle hooks and brush box are standard.

For unequaled strength and value consider the economical steel-constructed Trail Hand and Ranger models. The Trail Hand offers unprecedented simple value while the surprising Ranger is the number one selling aluminum-over-steel living quarters trailer on the market today.

The Ranger is a great example of the affordable luxury offered by Bison. The living quarters are filled with features expected on high-end luxury brands, including rich upholstery, shaker hickory cabinet doors, residential plank-look flooring, and LED interior lighting.  Find full bathrooms with porcelain commodes, glass-doored residential showers. and large linen closets.

When light-weight towability and value are the priorities look to the Bison Trail Boss. The Trail Boss offers a relaxing retreat after a long day of trail riding or competing at a price to fit your budget. Built with uncompromising Bison quality including hardwood beaded maple cabinet doors and rich upholstered seating, full-residential style baths and a queen-bedded sleeping area. The functional trail Boss includes ample overhead storage and a living area slide-out for additional room.
