    Default OK, help me find these doodads. (trailer question)

    I'm in the process of ordering a new horse trailer. **happy dance**

    I have a few friends who have added small metal clips/hooks to the sides of their trailers, so that a water bucket can be hung outside, sitting on the trailer's fender, and these clips are positioned so the bucket can't be dumped.

    I'll have an opportunity to get these put right on at the factory if I can find the right ones, but of course I have NO idea where one buys these things!

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Default Trailer parts

    You should not be able to cross the street without running into a trailer maker in your area okay, well maybe Illinois/Wisconsin..so ask any of them...they should be able to find the parts you need. You may need to research some equestrian catalogs tho as well. We had our local trailer guy add the metal fixed door holders because our Trailet had those useless, dangerous rubber door holders that let the door go at the worst possible time when the wind blows right as you're loading. They should be banned from use on horse trailers.
    Good luck.

    Over the internet, I found a really nice shop out West where I ordered vents and hooks of all kinds. It's at www.horsetraileraccessorystore.com, prices were decent, shipping was fair, and service was great. I ordered and the things were here in Mississippi in three days. No sales tax either.

    The people at Eastern Marine were much less helpful and prompt to respond to emails.

    I have something similar to this in my barn and my friend also uses them on her trailer:

    I use these http://www.horsehealthusa.com/detail...ddy/491-5.html

    But I wonder if there is a similar thing "factory made" for the purpose of horse trailer accessorizing? Maybe show them the pictures and they might know of a purpose built item.

    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    Ah, the bucket buddy is what my friends have! Thanks. The other sites were great to explore, too.
