New Line Of Horse Trailers
11/27/2012 at 10:06 AM ET
I'm helping a friend with a task...He's trying to come up with a great name for a line of Horse Trailers.
They are all aluminum, lightweight, durable, rugged and have endless custom capability.
We're looking for one word to encompass the line, preferably something that catches your attention and can be associated with Horses, cowboys etc.
Sooner the better!
Thanks in advance...

we have a problem; you say "They are all aluminum, lightweight, durable, rugged and have endless custom capability"
unless it is a vintage horsebox, the above description fits practically any horsebox on the planet.
Saving toy plastic ones, that is.
Furthermore, where do your customers live? North or South America or Africa? Presumably they are sports horseriders rather than farmers? After all, if you are a farmer you choose Ifor Williams. The most rugged trailer in the business.
So what differentiates you from the crowd and why should someone buy from you. (Please don't say you are cheaper, the Chinese and then the Indonesians will be hard on your tail and then you are out of business in a trice).

If customization is your competitive advantage, how about

I appreciate the comments...
While I'm not an expert on trailers manufactured in the UK, based on what I've read online, Ifor Williams isn't an all aluminum trailer...most models are galvanized steel...livestock has aluminum panels, but a steel chassis.
This isn't a new manufacturer, only a new product offering, this is one of the premier all aluminum trailer manufacturers in North America.
I'm looking for some name ideas for the Horse/Livestock series...for instance there is a manufacturer that calls their horse trailers..."stallion series"

If it isn't a new manufacturer, then if we knew that name, we could try to come up with something that fits.
As a horse person myself, people often say they are going to "haul out' when they travel with horses on a trailer. Or they say they are "hauling" the horses somewhere. So, I believe the earlier suggestion would make sense to horse folks.

Oops! You could be right about the Ifor Williams ...
in any case, it looks like aluminium??
What I still need to know is something that will differentiate you - just saying "premium" isn't enough. It won't move a farmer, that's for sure. Ifor Williams has a track record of being practically indestructible, whatever they are made of!
Could you describe the manufacturing process and then you would find something there that is creditably different from everyone else (even if it is the same, it might not be used in their ads!). What do they do to the chassis against (for example) rust? Are they easier to maintain because of certain features?
... etc etc

Or are they easier to use, drive ... safety features for on the road? Better braking/suspension? Better for the horses???

Guessing at some names that might sound compatible with various aluminum trailer manufacturers. You'll have to be flexible since we don't know which manufacturer needs the name.
Stockstream ... or Stockstream gooseneck, if that's the model type
Alumistock, Alumihaul, Alumiherd
Haulmaster / Haulmaster gooseneck, etc.
