Yes! You can get them in all price ranges too. The cheapest I was willing to go with was a CM brand, WW makes them....just about any brand but it really depends on the features you want. I fell in love with a Sundowner(I swore I would never own one) 26ft.aluminum with a sliding cut gate! Coolest thing, you can slide the center gate wherever you want. You can make a compartment for hay and feed(the trailer already had a 5 ft. Tack room) or for a stud divider or for a few head of steers horses in the back, or cut in half for hualing mares and babies.....so cool.....so expensive.
The trailer I was thinking of getting from CM, because WW couldn't build, was a pipe sided trailer, 6ft tack, 20 ft horse, cattle with center cut, 8000 lb. Axles and the "bull package" which is a heavier dutier frame and bumper, carpeted tack extra lights, rubber mats was about $13500, brand new. I think their weekender trailers might be cheaper with out the extra hardware for the bull package.
My favorites are the WW trailers but they wont make what I want. But they make a "stock " trailer with dividers and tack. They are tough trailers....I tried to tear one apart and the best I could do was have to reweld the hinges for the back door....we tore the back half of a Featherlight off...lol
