The origin of the company that now produces these deluxe top of the line aluminum horse trailers is an interesting one. Back in 1976 the three Shipman brothers, Larry, Gary and John started constructing stock trailers in Coleman, Oklahoma. Their father, Wayne Shipman had a hay barn on his property and that's where they worked. This building still stands. Their trailers were in immediate demand. Most days saw the Shipman brothers working till sundown and later. The corporate name "Sundowners" evolved from that work schedule.


Later that first year, Wayne Shipman joined his sons to develop sales programs and perform administrative tasks. Now thirty two years later Sundowners is still a family business. Excellent management skills and hard work led to expansion. They now manufacture a quality line of stock, sport utility and horse trailers with and without living quarters. Hiring the best design engineers, using the best materials and utilizing the best construction methods contributes to their climbing to the top echelons of aluminum horse trailer producers.


In the year 1997 they built a new factory with an assembly line to speed up production. The highest quality is maintained while at the same time customer orders are filled in a timely fashion. The 200,000 square foot plant along with the assembly line allowed them to double the number of trailers they build each year maxisys elite scan tool. The next major innovation was producing horse trailers that include living quarters. The slide out model is exactly what the name implies. After parking the trailer the side walls "slide out" to give additional living space to the occupants. These living quarters are now constructed and installed by a Sundowner subsidiary in Elkhart, Indiana appropriately named Sundowner Interiors, Inc.


Quality, customer service and the longest warranty (8 years) in the industry allows Sundowner to be accurately designated as producer of the penultimate quality aluminum horse trailer.
