Hi all, Love this forum. just found it and it is really interesting. anyone know anything about the silverlite Trailers? I currently have a Kiefer Stock and am looking at the Silverlite Bandit 3-H Gooseneck.

Hi Mary,

We're a SilverLite dealer in

Wi and have several Bandits on the lot. The head and butt openings are 10" along both complete sides. Need more? No problem, overhead vents can be added.

I see a comment on the tack room size....it measures just over 4' x 7' in the BP and is carpeted. The GN has a 2' short wall this of course can be incresed.

As far as strength SilverLite builds their trailers mountain tough to handle the terrain of the west where they're built in Oregon. Check out the competition, the wall thickness of the Bandit is 1/8" aluminum and rubber lined. Plus, the company backs it up with a 5yr warranty. To be truthful we've been very, very impressed with the way SilverLite has handled any problems. Often going way beyond expectations.

If you'd like more info give us a call toll free @ 877-245-6753.

Happy Trailering!

I have taken the liberty to do a search & give you a couple links to past threads about Silverlites - which include my own opinion as well!

thanks for the info. My Husband thought the frame of the goosneck of the silverlite did,nt look as good of quality as My Aluminum KeiferBuilt Gooseneck . I liked what the Silverlite Bandit had to offer for the price/weight of an Aluminum Trailer .

SilverLite employs n A-frame hitch that ultilizes the superior strength of powder coated steel to tie the hitch, gooseneck deck, lower bunk wall and the landing gear into the "best darn GN in the industry". When you pull a SilverLite you're pulling from the frame and not from the neck.When comparing take a look at the heftiness of steel and welds used on other brands.

Trailer buying is usually not an easy decision but if you decide to go with the SilverLite you'll get a great trailer and a great company to stand behind it!
