Question weatherproofing a stock trailer

friend has 4 horse CM stock trailer, she wants to put plexi glass down sides but where do you find the tracks that the plexi glass can slide on? And do you have any suggestions for the door area, plexi glass again?

Just going to repeat what I said in my own "trailer" thread... I talked to my trainer last week, and she suggested to use plywood instead of plexiglass. Basically make 2 holes and wrap it to the sides with the bungees. Same thing can be done with the half part of the door.

You can get the tracks at most horse trailer dealers. You could probably order them online also.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

You could also drill some holes in the plexi and use plastic ties to keep them on.
