Another idea would be to mount Ammo cans on the fenders for storage. I would modify them first. Attach a piano hinge along the long side of the lid and box so that it opens from the side instead of from the end, then attach lasp to the open side so you can lock it. I say that because it is less worrisome than forgetting to put lid back on and seeing it tumbling down the highway in the side view mirror.
Your horse will not need the entire area of the manger so you can mount some smaller ammo cans on their side to the inside of the manger doors then cover them with the padding material just for precaution. Great place for first aid kit and quick access to it.
Install a bilge pump, used in boats, to pump the water from the storage tank. It can be tied into the trailer lights for power and can double for washing hands or even a cowboy shower if the tank is large enough.
Hope these ideas help some too.
Oh, one other idea I have planned for mine. If you have someone good with sheet metal then have them revamp your stall divider with two sheets that will go from the center to the wall. Put them on piano hinge so they will fold down to the center between the horses and swing up to latch to the outside wall for a bed off the floor. You can still add the padding and use it to make sleeping on it more comfortable and protecting the horses legs against the metal.
