To the Employees of Hawk Trailers:
We wanted to inform you of some circumstances that have arisen since the purchase of the trailer in March 1998. Last weekend we took all three horses up to Flagstaff. On the way home we were stuck in a huge traffic jam, where we ended up going about 5 mph on a steep uphill climb for approximately 45 minutes. It was over 110 degrees. The first chance we got to check on the horses, we discovered the amazing fact, that they were quite better off than we were. The temperature inside the trailer was a good 20 degrees lower than it was outside! Obviously the fiberglass roof, and the insulation is working extremely well.
Recently we obtained a new gelding. The previous owner had advised us that the horse would get excited if not unloaded immediately. He told us that the horse had actually kicked out the window of his 4-horse slant trailer (made by one of your competitors) on two occasions. We have witnessed this horse getting a little nervous when not immediately unloaded, with much better results. He did his best, but was unable to kick out the window of our Hawk Trailer. In fact, the only damage that occurred was some slight bending of the aluminum window frame. Thankfully our trailer is made quite a bit sturdier than the competition.
On several occasions in the last few months, we have taken the trailer to the Pro-rodeo. We are proud to tell you, that we have had many compliments saying that our trailer was the nicest in the lot. Looking around the parking lot, we saw probably all of your major competitors represented by the many different trailers there. It was clear, that our trailer was the best looking rig there. Now we may be a little biased, but we don’t think all the cowboys that commented on it were!Sincerely,
We just wanted you to know how much we appreciate the service you gave us when we brought our 1999 GN Hawk Trailer in for some maintenance work! We have never worked with a company who stands behind their product as you did that day. We were so impressed and thankful. We love our Hawk trailer and after that day, we’ll continue to look to Hawk Trailers for our needs in the future. You deliver a wonderful product.Thanks,

I just wanted to thank you for building such a great trailer and for putting me in contact with a fantastic dealer.
Love the trailer and the dealer was great to work with. Trailer hauls amazingly well and I have hauled a lot of trailers in the past 35 years. The ride the horses are getting is great and within a few uses the horses are loading better, obviously enjoying the trailer more than what I had been using.
I also noticed that leaded or empty there is no noticeable change in my trucks performance and very littlle in gas milage, the trailer handles that well. I pull with only a regulare 4 x 4 heavy duty half ton with the mid range GMC motor and it works great.
Thanks again for making the process easy and pleasureable.
I have had 4 good trailers in my riding life to date, and the Hawk is the best yet. The trailer was delivered to me, matched my truck, pulls like a dream and after 2 years is still ideal. I live in hot country, and was stuck in traffic in Phoenix last June at 104 degree temps. With the insulation in walls and ceiling, when I checked on the horses, they were cooler than I was. This is a HUGE comfort, to know that they are happy in their big light trailer in all weathers. I haul usually 5 to 8 hours to compete two BIG horses, about every two weeks spring thru fall. With any questions I had, the service was impeccable, extra parts were sent free. I could not recommend Hawk trailers more highly.
