Custom Made Galvanized Steel Goat Milking Stand

Goddard Farm ordered a custom goat milking stand. The solid head board directs the goat's head without confusion to the goat. Expanded metal on the platform and ramp plus 1/4" rods across the ramp add addition traction so the goats can walk easily up the ramp.

The head gate has infinite settings to fit any size goat neck. Hot dipped galvanized it's easy to clean and durable.

Eagle Trailer Still Going After 17 Years of Hauling

The Goddard's bought their Eagle Trailer back in 2001 and, after tens of thousands of miles of use, it's still going strong. The only expense has been to replace a set of tires.

The trailer hauling a load of alfalfa to feed the goats.

The Goddards raise a herd of Nubian goats. They milk their goats on a 10 year old galvanized Eagle Trailer Goat Milking Stanchion that was custom designed. They ship goats world wide and sell cheese direct to their community. Visit to learn more about their farm.

Tiny House Trailer

Over the last few years we've received multiple requests to create trailers to carry tiny homes (or tumbleweed houses). This unique custom order is important and not  just any trailer is suitable to carry a home. We take into account the building materials, weight, and design of the home during the design process. Our trailers are built to last and, because of experience making trailers for tiny homes, your home will last through all your travels.
This trailer was designed for the group at Tiny Life Wiki.

Here's the trailer in production.

Brenderup Trailer Repaired to be Better Than New

We repaired this Brenderup trailer after the Baltic Birch core rotted out of the front walls.

Brenderup trailers are popular because of their lightweight construction and compact shipping method. Brenderup no longer has a service presence in the states, so any repairs to the trailers have to be done locally. 

This Brenderup is now better than new! We employ the same material used by semi-truck walls, which is made of a fiberglass core sandwiched by galvanized aluminum. These walls will never rot away again. Their long lasting construction adds minimal weight to repaired trailer.

Contact us with any questions about your Brenderup and how we can keep your trailer rolling for years to come. Call (785) 841-3200.

Our Building's History

Building at it's original height.

Our building with the new roof

Eagle Trailer Co. inhabits two buildings on it's property. The main building was constructed in 1970 for use as a baking supply company. The tower was used to store grain bins that were filled when, the now removed, train line would pass by.

This past Fall a strong wind during a storm lifted the roof of the tower off and set it back down resulting in a large crack that ran the perimeter of the roofline. As a result, our building profile is changing. The bins have been removed, the pit they sat in filled in, and the floor leveled. Our paint booth, which is the largest in the region, will be moved there to make more room on the floor for trailer assembly.

Crane brought in to remove roof's steel decking.

Large steel bins lifted out.

Lowering the roof line. Don't worry, our red strip will return!
