2005 Brenderup Baron TC – Easy-to-Tow. New Floor & Tires
Loaded with Options & Accessories!

     

Those of you familiar with Brenderup trailers know they are designed to be towed safely by smaller-than-typical tow vehicles. Here in the States, they’re often towed by small to mid-sized 6-cylinder SUVs and smaller trucks. In Europe, a fair number of owners use a car as the tow vehicle. How is this possible? Two main factors – lighter tongue weight to keep the tow vehicle level for more predictable handling and aerodynamic shape to reduce the tow vehicle’s power requirement. A Baron is designed so that the loaded tongue weight does not exceed 250 lbs. For comparison, a typical domestically-produced 2H bumper pull has a loaded tongue weight of about 500-600 lbs. Add a dressing room and the tongue weight often goes up to 600-700 lbs. Brenderup started producing horse trailers in the early 1950s, so their light-tongue-weight designs are well proven on roads all over the world.

   

The Baron TC is one of Brenderup’s most popular models. As mentioned above, it’s designed so that it may be towed safely by a smaller vehicle, but it’s sized to accommodate two horses to 18 hands. It has features to accommodate smaller horses as well. The chest and butt bars offer three height adjustments. In addition, as you lower a butt bar, it also shortens the stall for the smaller horse. The butt bars have fast-action latches to get you out of the kick zone quickly, yet they fit tightly to eliminate unpleasant rattling and clanking.

   

This Baron is equipped with quite a few options and accessories, including a foal panel at the front of the stalls and a head divider (which is shown on the floor in front of the foal panel). These two accessories are easily installed or removed. Other factory options on this trailer include removable feeders (a.k.a. “manger bags”), butt bar pads and aluminum alloy wheels. One of the owner-added accessories is a 12-inch battery-powered fan which may be placed in the horse area or in the dressing room. (The fan and butt bar pads are on the floor of the dressing room in one of the pictures below.)  The bright and inviting horse area includes a 5-way window near each horse’s head (that is, each window can be opened to 5 different positions for ventilation) and a groom door on each side. Another horse- and handler-friendly feature is the 5’ tall ramp (compare to the 4’ ramp on many trailers), offering a comfortable incline for loading and unloading. The ramp lift effort is very reasonable, thanks to the assist of a pair of gas springs. There’s a storm panel above the ramp and you may run with the panel up or down. When trailering horses, most folks run with the panel down for added light and ventilation.

    

As we mentioned in the teaser item, the “TC” in “Baron TC” indicates that this trailer is equipped with Brenderup’s clever InstaTack Tack Compartment that converts to a dressing room. The InstaTack lets you have a dressing room in a trailer that’s about the length of a standard 2H bumper pull. During travel, leave the tack compartment lid down, allowing light to stream in through the panoramic front window. At your destination, flip up the lid and the tack compartment becomes a compact dressing room. The dressing room comes with two saddle racks, bridle hooks and a blanket bar. This particular trailer has the upgrade to the wider Saddle Boss saddle racks. There’s a door on each side of the InstaTack for convenient access. Another noteworthy owner-added feature is several storage bins on a removable grid system on the rear wall of the dressing room. Thanks to the grid system, the bins may be quickly and easily repositioned.

           

Referring to something else we said in the teaser, this trailer received a new floor in 2016 and new tires were mounted at that time. The new floor consists of pressure-treated wood planks and they’re covered by Brenderup’s standard rubber floor mats. The Baron series features long-lasting Solid Phenolic Core (SPC) walls and fiberglass roof. The chassis is of rugged corrosion-protected galvanized steel.

   

A few years ago, a strong wind storm passed over the farm where this trailer was parked. Apparently, the trailer’s wheels weren’t chocked adequately to deal with the derecho and it landsailed into the corner of a barn. It’s a testament to Brenderup construction that this just caused a crack in the nose rather than serious damage, but since the incident happened, we’re disclosing it and showing the trailer’s repaired condition. This listing includes several views of the trailer and as you can see, it looks fine from most angles. The first picture just above is a close-up of the right front corner, the repaired area. The second image shows the repair on the interior. On the exterior, a bit of the finish has flaked away at the repaired area. As you can see in the front view just above, even from a short distance away, the trailer looks fine, but up close, the blemish can be seen at the repaired area. The blemish does not harm the functionality of the trailer.

We invite you to stop by and check out this very nice Brenderup Baron TC. It’s a very desirable model to begin with, and the fresh tires & floor and abundant accessories make this one even more so. Private Sale on display at Traveled Lane. Asking $8800.
