I’ve attached a few materials and also referenced some links that I’ve found helpful and that your other readers might as well. Include or not, as you see fit on your blog site.

(note from Jeff: The documents are stored inDropbox Folder at THIS LINK <<<)
1. The Brenderup Horse Trailer Manual has a brief, but decent maintenance information on page 17.
2. The Trailer Specs doc has pictures of the different models with dimensions and weight at the bottom in a chart
3. The Leaflet – has technical summary chart as well as advertisement type descriptions
4. Wiring Harness – diagram of the 7 pin harness and which pin does what, along with information on what to do if you have a 4 pin harness.
5. Trailer Quick Guide – this is a document I created, so that other folks borrowing my trailer know what to do.
6. Minimum Towing Vehicle Specs – self- explanatory
7. Brake Servicing & Operation – I forget where I came across this, but it was on a Brenderup Site (probably the Texas one before they were gone). Can you tell me if it matches what you know from having a brake job done on your trailer?
8. LED lights – did you ever install LED lights like you said you might? If so, did you make a video of those steps, or have suggestions? Here’s a youtube video I came across published 4/11/2014, they say they will follow-up with detailed steps.
9. Removing the Stall Divider – here’s a video link showing how it is done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLqH1pPgyQo
10. One Piece Butt Bar – a video on how to use it. What was interesting is the adaptor at one end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjFHDAxdLkA
11. Removing the Head Diviider – a video to help with that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PRauhMlq-E
12. Trailer Covers – I’m strongly considering a trailer cover, since water gets into the Brenderups quite readily through the back if no where else. Heres a few sites.
13. Trainer Wheel Bearings – I don’t know if this applies or not, but I thought I’d keep it as a reference https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSbVSD6YCFE
14. Trailer Brake Shoe replacement – don’t know if this applies either, but might be helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxI9Rf-eRqo
Redeived from Judy B.: I am currently working on sprucing up my Brenderup Baron TC – i.e. some general maintenance and found that 2 of my access doors needed new weatherstripping. The following site has what appears to be identical weatherstripping from the picture (see top item pictured below). So, I thought it might be useful to other readers.

WOW! Nice find, Judy!
Thanks for the weather strip find. It looks like the right thing. I am certain that the weather stripping was an american product that the TX factory used.
Will check your other note also.
Thanks, again, and travel safe!

2005 Brenderup Baron TC. This trailer is very easy to tow. You do not need a big vehicle to tow this. Weighs 1900 pounds. Has its own braking system (no brake controller needed). Adjustable butt bars, for different size horses. Handles horses up to 17 hands (had a Clydesdale in it a few times). Steel kick plates inside, if horses get feisty. Tack room, where top goes up so you can stand it it, if you need to make a wardrobe change at a show (horses have to be out to put top up). Has 2 saddle racks, 2 bridle racks, and a blanket pole in tack room. Ramp is long enough for a horse to totally stand on it. Has stabilizer bars on either side, to stabilize ramp, for heavier horses (or horses skittish with ramps). Hydraulic lifts on ramp to help you close it. Front window horses can see out of. Side windows that adjust to partially open, or fully open. Head divider so horses cannot pick at each other inside. Two lead rope ties on either side. Uses regular car tires, so not as expensive as truck tires. Comes with hay bags, feed buckets, trailer ties, Trailer Aid tire ramp and 2-ton jack, so you are ready to go as soon as you register it. It has just passed inspection. I had a bad fall last year and had back surgery, and cannot ride anymore, so trailer and accessories must go. This was my first trailer ever, and I had a blast with it going to various state and national parks. Very easy to use. $7,500 or best offer.

Subject: Brenderup Partition Bent

I have a Benderup Baron 2004 ( I think). The partition has bent. The top bar is bent, the welding of the steel that supports the plastic has severed at the back and the pin that holds the front vertical into the floor has snapped. The only thing holding the partition together is the fiberglass. The trailer wasn't in an accident.
Do you think this repairable or do I need a new partition.? I think the bottom bar could be re welded but am not sure about the bottom pin.
Answer: I think you can take it to a MACHINE shop and as what they think. Can you send photos?
A welding shop can probably do a fine job, but a place that calls themselves a MACHINE shop will likely do better work, although it may cost a bit more.
They will need to see the partition in the trailer so that they can keep things aligned when they do the welding.
This should be a simple thing to have repaired.
Please send before and after pics. and Thank YOU for asking!
