1995 Brenderup Baron TC with InstaTack
Here’s a 1995 Brenderup Baron TC. Thanks to
light weight, light tongue weight and an aerodynamic shape, a
Brenderup can be towed safely by many of today’s popular mid-sized
SUVs and trucks. Brenderup trailers have been running the roads of
the world since the early 1950s, so the design is well proven. The
Baron is designed for horses to 18 hands and this TC model has the
clever InstaTack dressing room. This is a private sale trailer on
display at our dealership. This Baron did its job well, but now the
owners need to carry 3 horses and that’s one thing a two horse
trailer can’t do.
Brenderups were developed in Europe, where
large tow vehicles are a rare luxury. Over there, most folks tow
with their fuel-efficient everyday vehicles. To ensure safe towing
by those smaller vehicles, European trailer manufacturers keep the
weight down and balance the trailer to reduce the tongue weight.
Less tongue weight helps keep the vehicle level for better steering
control. (The chassis has some stability-enhancing enhancing
features as well, but we won’t bore you with the details.)
The empty weight of the Baron is listed as 2150
lbs., one benefit of Brenderup’s unitized construction. The walls,
roof and chassis all work together to create a 3-dimensional
structure that’s light, yet strong. The Baron TC is designed so
that, when carrying horses, the loaded tongue weight will not exceed
250 lbs. For comparison, a domestic 2H with dressing room typically
carries about 600-900 lbs. on the hitch. (Remember, the Baron TC has
the InstaTack; it’s a dressing room trailer.)
As mentioned earlier, the Baron is designed for
horses to 18 hands. Body length is about 12 feet and height is a
generous 7’4”. The ramp is taller than most at 5 feet and has
toeholds for safe loading. A pair of gas springs at the base of the
ramp keeps the lift effort manageable. At the top of the ramp,
there’s a storm panel. You can run with the storm panel up or down
(although most folks leave it down for additional light and
ventilation). In the horse area, the Baron comes with a pair of
groom doors as standard, a huge front window and a 5-way opening
window near each horse’s head. This Baron has 3 butt bar positions
so you can shorten the stall for smaller horses. This trailer is
equipped with the optional head divider, which can be removed if not
required. This trailer also comes with a removable feeder, which can
be seen near the head divider.
Now for a few more words about the InstaTack.
The InstaTack is Brenderup’s patented convertible dressing room.
During travel, the tack compartment lid is down, allowing light to
stream in through the large front window and giving the horses
plenty of stretch out room for head & neck. When you reach your
destination, flip the lid to the vertical position and you have a
standing height dressing room. That’s the InstaTack. The Baron comes
with 2 saddle racks as standard. This trailer has had a second set
added, for a total of 4. Better yet, one of those racks is a
contoured Saddle Boss rack. Bridle hooks and a blanket bar are
standard and please note, the InstaTack has a door on each side for
One reason why Brenderups tend to last so long
is because of the long-lasting materials of which they’re built. The
Baron’s rugged steel frame is galvanized for corrosion protection,
the roof is durable fiberglass and the walls are tough Solid
Phenolic Core (SPC) panels. This trailer received a new Brenderup
original equipment floor in 2010.
This Baron has smooth-riding torsion axles and
radial tires. It also has Brenderup’s signature Inertia brakes. As
you slow your vehicle, Inertia brakes apply braking force
automatically in proportion to the load in the trailer. No need to
adjust a brake controller. In fact, with Inertia brakes (which are
mechanical rather than electric brakes), no brake controller is
The trailer comes with a Brenderup-logo spare
tire cover (not shown in photos) and two coupler locks.

easy-pulling and well-equipped Brenderup Baron TC. Private Sale

2001 Brenderup Baron SL with
Expandable InstaTack Dressing Room
Here’s a 2001 Brenderup Baron SL. The Baron
series is for horses to 18 hands. This one has the popular Brenderup
InstaTack convertible dressing room, but the “SL” in the name means
the dressing room wall SLIDES to expand the dressing room to
approximately 6 feet. That’s a quite spacious dressing room in a
trailer that doesn’t require a large tow vehicle. Brenderup employs
unitized construction to produce a strong, lightweight trailer. Add
great balance and an aerodynamic shape and the result is a trailer
that can be pulled safely by many mid-sized SUVs and trucks.
The empty weight on the Baron is listed as 2150 lbs. and, when
carrying horses, the loaded tongue weight does not exceed 250 lbs.
For comparison, many dressing room trailers have loaded tongue
weights in the 600-900 lb. range. Why the difference? Brenderups
were developed in Europe, where expensive fuel means large tow
vehicles are rare. Responsive trailer manufacturers developed
products that could be pulled safely by smaller vehicles. The
lighter tongue weight of the Brenderup helps those smaller vehicles
remain level for better steering control. Brenderups have been in
production for about 60 years, so the designs are well proven. This
Baron SL is a private sale trailer on display at our dealership. The
trailer provided many years of reliable service to its owner, but
she changes out her equipment periodically and is now pulling a new
Twi-Lite. It’s time to find the trusty Brenderup a new home.
Many folks assume that because you can pull a
Brenderup with a smaller-than-normal vehicle, it must be a small
trailer. Not so. As we mentioned earlier, the Baron is designed for
horses to 18 hands. Body length is about 12 feet and height is a
generous 7’4”. Most ramps are 4 feet tall. Brenderup’s standard ramp
is 5’ tall for a comfortable angle when loading and unloading. A
further thoughtful touch is the toeholds on the ramp mat. A pair of
gas springs lets you enjoy the benefits of a tall ramp without
having to lift all the weight. At the top of the ramp, there’s a
storm panel to close the opening. Want more light & air for the
horses? It’s ok to run with the storm panel down. In the horse area,
the Baron comes with a pair of groom doors as standard, a wide,
tinted front window and a 5-way opening window near each horse’s
head. This Baron has 3 butt bar positions so you can shorten the
stall for smaller horses.
Let’s talk a bit more about that InstaTack. The InstaTack is
Brenderup’s patented design. It’s a tack compartment that converts
into a dressing room, and the SL’s dressing room takes it a step
further by expanding. During travel, the tack compartment lid is
down, allowing light to stream in through the large front window and
offering the horses plenty of stretch out room forward. When you
reach your destination, flip the lid to the vertical position and
you have a standing height dressing room. That’s the basic
InstaTack. On the SL model, if you want more room, you can have it.
When the horses are off the trailer, release 4 simple latches, push
the wall back to the chest bar and you have a dressing room of
nearly 6 feet (see the photos). The moving wall has rollers and also
rides on low profile roller slides on the side walls, so it’s easy
to move. The Baron dressing room comes with 2 saddle racks, bridle
hooks and a blanket bar as standard.
Brenderups last because they’re made of
long-lasting materials. The Baron’s steel frame is galvanized for
corrosion protection. The roof is durable fiberglass (think of the
pounding a fiberglass boat takes) and the walls are tough Solid
Phenolic Core (SPC) panels. The SPC is so tough, we’ve seen it break
drill bits. The wall panels are approximately one half inch thick,
so heat and sound transmission through the walls is essentially nil.
Combine that with chest and butt bars that don’t rattle and you have
a quiet interior.
As with other Brenderups, this Baron has
smooth-riding torsion axles and radial tires. A noteworthy feature
is Brenderup’s Inertia brakes. As you slow your tow vehicle, Inertia
brakes apply braking force automatically in proportion to the load
in the trailer. No need to adjust a brake controller. In fact, with
Inertia brakes (which are mechanical rather than electric brakes),
no brake controller is required!

Brenderup Baron SL. Private Sale on display at Traveled Lane.
Haulmark 4x6 Enclosed Trailer with
Here’s a neat little trailer we just took in trade. It’s a low
profile Haulmark 4x6. That low profile makes it very easy to
pull, but thanks to a flip-up lid and rear door, interior access
is very convenient. This is an upscale trailer. It features an
ALUMINUM frame, torsion axle, Goodyear Marathon radial tires and
bright LED lights. The lid has gas springs and is very easy to
lift. The rear door has a built-in lock.
Thanks to the aluminum frame and balanced
design, it’s easy for a healthy person (i.e., one without a bad
back) to move this trailer around. We roll it around the lot about
as easily as if it were a wheelbarrow. The tongue is removable, so
if you care to store the trailer in a corner of the garage, it won’t
take up much space.
With dimensions of approximately 4’ x 6’ x 2.5’, cargo volume is
about 60 cubic feet. This trailer is larger and much easier to load
than a roof top carrier. Payload capacity is a generous 645 lbs.
There’s a plywood floor and the walls are lined to protect the
aluminum exterior skin. (By the way, in case you’re wondering, we’d
call the color Pewter.)
For what it’s worth, this trailer looks a
lot like a trailer produced by Wells Cargo. What really reinforced
the notion is that some of the components on this trailer are even
labeled “Wells Cargo.” Wells Cargo is a top brand of cargo trailer
(and has the same parent company as Haulmark). We checked out the
Wells factory website and except for the lights and decals, this
looks like their MPT 461. If you’re curious, here’s the link to the
page we looked at:
We can’t guarantee it’s the same trailer, but as the old saying
goes, “If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…”
If you need additional lockable cargo space while traveling, but
don’t want to handle and store a full-sized trailer, this might be
the trailer for you. When new, these run about $2600 before options
and this one has an optional spare tire (not shown). We’re
offering this lightly used trailer for $1875.
2007 Eby 3+1 GN
with Dressing Room – Compact, Versatile & 8 Feet Tall!
Two thoughts came to mind when we first saw
this trailer. First, we liked the versatile layout in a manageable
size, and second, we could see that it had been well cared for. We
call this extremely clean Eby a “3+1” because, as it is set up in
these pictures, you can carry 3 horses abreast in straight stalls
plus another in a box stall. Reposition the dividers to eliminate
the center stall and it becomes a 2+1, albeit a 2+1 with wider
stalls than you’ll normally see. If you want to transport 2 horses
in box stalls, this trailer can do that, too. The way this trailer
is designed, you can reconfigure it in just minutes. As you read on,
you may get even more ideas of how to use the space. This is a
private sale trailer on display at our dealership. The owner no
longer needs a trailer this size, so it’s time to find it a new home
with someone who can make use of its space and reconfigurability.
Considering all you can do with this trailer, it’s relatively
compact at 24 feet on the floor. Even though it’s compact(ish) on
the outside, it’s quite roomy inside. The 8’ body width makes those
3-abreast straight stalls and large box stalls possible.
If you have tall horses, take note of the 8’ interior height!
The horse area is approximately 20 feet long and there’s a 4’
dressing room. It may not be obvious in the pictures, but the nose
is tapered to give good cab clearance when turning. The trailer is
equipped with a pair of 7000 lb. torsion axles with electric brakes
on all wheels.
All loading is done via the rear ramp. Walk a
horse in, swing it around and back it into a stall. When the
straight stalls are full, put the full width chest bar in place.
This trailer is equipped with 4 spring-loaded aluminum poles that
serve as full width chest & butt bars. You have your choice of a
high or low position for each bar.
Want to carry an extra horse in a box stall?
Click a chest bar pole into place to define the front of the box,
load the horse and put the butt bar in place. Raise the ramp and
you’re ready to go. Simple & quick. (And in case you’re wondering,
we found the spring assist on the rear ramp to be quite effective.)
Eby has thoughtfully included holders so the chest & butt bars are
handy when you need them and out of the way when you don’t .
The 2-piece side door is another handy feature.
When the trailer’s parked, open the upper section for added light &
ventilation. Or open the whole door for convenient access to the
aisle between the straight and box stalls. (And when it’s set up as
2 box stalls, that aisle is between the front & rear box stalls.)
This trailer features all aluminum
construction. The robustness & craftsmanship typical of Eby products
are readily apparent. In addition to an abundance of windows for
light and ventilation, this one has insulated walls and an insulated
ceiling. Open the side door and rear and you have a
weather-protected area for tacking & grooming or a nice place to sit
out of the heat or rain. Also please note the five 2-way roof vents
for added ventilation.
Getting back to those 2-abreast and 3-abreast
setups, the trailer is designed so the hardware can stay in the
trailer in either configuration. Set up the posts & dividers so
there’s a stall width between them for 3-abreast straight stalls or
locate the hardware side by side to create 2 wide straight stalls.
No need to carry bulky items to the barn for storage and the
hardware is with the trailer when you need it. By the way, those
large silver squares on the floor in some pictures are the easily
removable head dividers for the straight stalls. There are ¾”
interlocking rubber floor mats and the horse area walls are rubber
lined to 48” height.
The dressing room is loaded with handy
features. There are 3 adjustable height saddle racks and several
heavy duty bridle hooks. There’s room on the saddle rack post for
another saddle rack if needed. There’s a blanket bar, a full width
clothing rod and a large brush tray. There are also horizontal bars
on the rear wall and above the door to allow organizers and such to
be hung. There’s a 50 gallon water tank in the nose and the tank has
markings so you can see how many gallons are available. The spigot
is at convenient bucket-filling height near the spare tire. The
dressing room has a lockable door with window and a screen door.
There’s also a large window on each side of the gooseneck and a
window in the rear wall, so there’s plenty of light & ventilation.
In the “hope you never need it” department, there’s a fire
extinguisher just inside the dressing room door.
As mentioned earlier, the rear area of the
trailer makes a nice place to sit out of the weather, but if the box
stall is occupied, you’ll still have a nice gathering spot under the
awning, which by our tape measures about 15.5 feet. There’s also an
onboard battery so you can use the trailer lights without running
down your truck battery.
Regular maintenance was performed at a shop near the owner’s farm,
but it was also sent occasionally to the factory for maintenance and
thorough inspection. The most recent factory visit in July 2012
included scheduled maintenance and an acid wash inside and out.
We invite you to check out this very versatile
& well-kept Eby. Private Sale
on display at Traveled Lane. Asking $24,800.
2005 Brenderup Baron SL with
Expandable InstaTack Dressing Room!
Here’s a well
maintained Brenderup Baron SL, a trailer that accommodates large
horses and can be pulled safely by many of today’s compact SUVs and
trucks. This one is a private sale trailer on display at our
Baron models are designed for horses to 18
hands. Quite a few of our Barons over the years were bought by
dressage riders and eventers, many of whom have large horses. This
trailer has Brenderup’s patented InstaTack dressing room, but the
“SL” in the name signifies something extra – thanks to a SLiding
wall, this dressing room expands! Use the dressing room at
standard size, or when the horses are off the trailer, push the wall
back to the chest bar to create a dressing room of nearly 6 feet!
Plenty of room! In fact, it’s so roomy that we’ve heard of at least
one Baron SL owner who uses the dressing room instead of a tent for
Getting back to that “pull it safely with a
smaller vehicle” theme, take a look at one of the pictures above.
That’s this Baron behind its long-time tow vehicle, a 6-cylinder GMC
Envoy. Brenderups were developed in Europe, where smaller vehicles
are the norm because of very high fuel prices. Brenderups have been
in production since the early 1950s, so the designs are well proven.
Empty weight on the Baron is listed as 2150 lbs., but more
importantly, the loaded tongue weight should not exceed 250 lbs. For
comparison, conventional 2H trailers with dressing room typically
carry about 600-900 lbs. on the hitch. That’s a significant
difference if you’re not towing with a large, firmly-suspended
The Barons are Brenderup’s largest models and
offer the most standard features. In addition to the InstaTack
dressing room (more on that shortly), this Baron has adjustable
height chest & butt bars, and the butt bar latch design is one of
the quickest & easiest we’ve ever used. There’s a 5-way opening
window near each horse’s head and a groom door on each side. The 5’
ramp is taller than most for a comfortable loading angle and thanks
to a pair of gas springs, the lift effort is very reasonable.
There’s a storm panel on the ramp and it’s ok to run with the panel
up or down. Open the 5-way windows up front, lower the storm panel
in back and you have a bright and well-ventilated space for your
Now for more on Brenderup’s patented InstaTack
dressing room. Forward of the groom doors, there’s a vertical wall
about 3.5’ tall with a hinged lid. During travel, you run with the
lid closed. Light streams in through the large front window and with
65 inches of stretch out room forward of the chest bar, it’s a very
inviting space. When you get to your destination, flip up the lid,
lock it into place and you have a standing height dressing room
about 3’ from front to back. Standard equipment includes two saddle
racks, bridle hooks, a blanket bar and a lockable door on each side.
In the SL model shown here, when the horses are off the trailer, you
can undo 4 simple latches, push the wall back to the chest bar and
just about double the size of your dressing room! It’s clever, it’s
easy, it’s InstaTack!
Barons feature Solid Phenolic Core (SPC) walls
and a galvanized steel frame – tough & durable materials. The SPC
walls are about ½” thick, so they’re quiet and there’s little to no
heat transmission – very comfortable for your horses. Shortly before
this trailer was brought to our dealership, a new floor was
installed. Since Brenderup floor panels are hard to come by, the
shop welded in additional cross-members and installed pressure
treated pine planks. It’s a very tidy installation. The trailer has
rubber floor mats, but they’re hanging over the stall divider and
chest bar so you can see the new floor.
Some other Baron (and Brenderup) standard
features are smooth riding torsion axles (with shock absorbers, not
available on most trailers!), radial tires and Inertia brakes. A
nice thing about Inertia brakes is that they apply braking force
automatically in proportion to the load in the trailer. There’s no
need to adjust a brake controller. In fact, with Inertia brakes
(which are mechanically operated rather than electric), you don’t
even need a brake controller in the tow vehicle! As with the rest of
the Brenderup design, Inertia brakes have been in use for decades
and are well proven. Very smooth in operation.
If you’d like a well-designed trailer that
doesn’t require a large tow vehicle, this very nice Brenderup Baron
SL may be the trailer for you! This one even comes with owner-added
accessories such as horse ties, water cans and a can of Fix-a-Flat
(or something similar). We invite you to stop by and check it out.
Private Sale on display at Traveled Lane. Asking $12,500.
