Right now the trailer was valued at 4Star at $14,000. Maybe I should just call them and ask what it would do to the trailer's value. They are the ones who told me how much it is approximately worth.
I think if you look at it closer they are removable. The hinges may be welded but the pins should be removeable. If the others telescope than they are probably not interchangable. I guarantee you could get someone to buy your wall and trade you for a regular wall.
There are lots of threads on people trying to make a makeshift divider.

It might not devalue it but one that has the divider is more desirable.
oh yes, I can totally understand why you would keep yours then,as that does sound handy. I agree with a poster above though, that if you decide to do it, definetly have it done professionally..

Oh if I do it will be professionally done. I camp with my trailer all the time but most of the time there is a horse in the front stall and so I don't use it for storage. I usually haul friends horses as well when we go places. No sense in everyone taking a trailer to the same destination if we don't need to.

Unfortunately the way 4Star makes their trailers you can not swap out the dividers. My best friend and her husband both have 4Star trailers. Both would let me use a divider and use my stud divider if it would fit without being modified but so far it has not worked. Paul has a 6 horse and Kelly has a 4 horse. I can't even swap mine out within my own trailer due to how they are made. I have to say I love my 4Star and having an all aluminum trailer but wishing I could move them around even within my own trailer would be an awesome help.

I will be leaving it for now... I go through this every so often and haven't had it cut off yet and I have owned my trailer for years.

If you decide to take it out, and down the road you want one in (for horses, not as good for camping gear)

And for you Mango,

You can use a 1/2" thick rubber mat and screw it to one side of the divider.

The trailer I bought this summer is done up that way. Drags on the floor but also has give to it unlike the solid aluminum.

I wouldn't cut it. I prefer dividers that go to the ground, and would find that desirable if shopping for a used trailer.

When 4Star builds their trailers they weld everything in place one at a time. There is not a standard distance. Which is why I can't move my dividers even to a different location even in my own trailer. Tried that already. I will give full reasoning behind this when I call 4Star on Monday.

I'd like the solid aluminum...my boys have sliders on and I could see some holes in the rubber coming from those haha

The rubber mat idea is a great one IMO. And mango, Im sure the suggestion was for a thick rubber mat (like a stall mat)..although I could see the mat idea making the dividers a biotch to get out... but they may also deter you boys from kicking..

I remember watching monty roberts working with a kicking colt.. he put him in a chute (like two panels really) and fastened a rubber mat behind him.He then startedto fiddle with his legs with a fake hand- the colt would kick out hitting the hanging rubber...solved his kicking problem real quick. I guess its uncomfortable feeling to them to kick something that isnt solid..
