Experience the legendary toughness of Barrett’s aluminum livestock trailers B arrett Trailers LLC started from a modest beginning in 1973 on a small lot just south of the airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and operated out of that facility for 21 years. In 1994, they moved to the current location right off of I-35 in Purcell, Oklahoma. The manufacturing facility was expanded to approximately 75,000 square feet to keep up with the demand for the highest quality livestock trailers on the market. Barrett Trailers’ ability and willingness to custom design their trailers to fit the many types of animals being raised across the U.S. and Canada created a large and loyal customer base for Barrett Trailers. Now, they have even exported trailers to Mexico, South America, Africa, Europe, Australia, Russia and China. 42 Their livestock trailers are legendary for being the most rugged, easy pulling, and longest lasting trailers on the market. The commercial haulers that use their trailers swear by the Barrett brand and state that if they hold up to the standards required of a commercial hauler, that they will certainly give the private user years of trouble-free service. Barrett Trailers was purchased by Stoughton Trailers in 2014. A privately-held company, Stoughton Trailers, is one of the largest dry van trailer manufacturers in the U.S. With Stoughton’s engineering and financial support, Barrett Trailer’s vision is to once again be the premier manufacturer of all-aluminum livestock semi-trailers and gooseneck trailers.
