Featherlite Trailers’ Model 8117—Simple and Convenient

CRESCO, Iowa -- While Featherlite Trailers is known for its innovative and convenient options, its new Model 8117 offers convenience through simplicity.

The Model 8117 is a gooseneck livestock trailer, a "little brother” to Featherlite's award-winning Model 8127. It comes standard with features that will appeal to first-time trailer buyers and infrequent haulers alike. Among these features are a treated wood floor, a full-swing center gate with slam latch and a curbside door for convenient unloading. One of the most attractive features, though, may be the 8117's low price point.

Simplicity does not mean lack of quality. The Model 8117 boasts the same high standards as any Featherlite trailer, from its aluminum alloy walls to its one-piece roof. It also benefits from the pierce-and-roll technique Featherlite uses on the roof rivets. This technique is also used in the airline manufacturing industry to drastically reduce the chance of leaks.


The Model 8117 is a perfect "gateway trailer,” combining the solid quality of Featherlite with an economical price point. For more information about the Model 8117, visit Featherlite online at or call 1-800-800-1230.
