The Utility Trailer Industry operates on a "Self Certification System" which means that the companies themselves have nobody to answer to but their own.  Would you buy a "Self Certified Baby Car Seat" then why are people driving around with trailers that are homemade and are built to virtually no National Safety Standard That All must be PROVEN AND CERTIFIED to pass.

The Utility Trailer Industry has tried and tried to destroy our cause and for over 16 years now we have proven that we are not going away.


They defunded us after Congressman Cantor promised to help find funding for our research.

They also find creative ways to harass us by using law enforcement.


We are ready to help save lives if only they would embrace us instead of trying to quash us.  Everyone below are life savers


MASSIVE SAFETY RECALL POTENTIAL THAT SHADOW TRAILERS IS NOT GOING TO DO UNLESS SOCIAL MEDIA AND OUR ORGANIZATION DOES IT.

Pulling it empty down a 2 lane road and the thing broke. 7 year warranty on A 3 year old trailer, didn't think it would take social media to resolve it.

Sam Kuhlber The biggest issue we are currently faced with is that for over three weeks we have been without any means of moving our livestock. We are a small Beef and equine operation and depended on this trailer very regularly. Now we are without having to borrow trailers to keep functioning with no reasonable resolution in sight! We have not even been offered a loaner or a rental!
