What do you love/hate about the tackroom in your trailer?

As some of you know we bought a different trailer, went back to a stock trailer with a tack room. The tack room is very basic. It has a driver side door and a 4 tier saddle rack on the back wall. Someone put up some bridle hooks but it looks pretty hokey. We were going to make some improvements like a carpeted wall for the bridles and blanket bar. One of the girls on my ranch rodeo team even put laminate flooring in hers because it is so easy to clean and take care of. We are considering trying this as well.

What things do you love about your tackroom? What things do you hate or find inconvenient? What things have you seen that you would love to have or do to your trailer?

My tackroom is way too small for all the junk we have in it and also the bridle hangers don't ever hold the bridles up. Whenever you close the door, they all fall down, so when you open up, everything falls out. OTL

That is what I have found too through past experiences, the hooks really have to be a hook especially if you stack more than one bridle to one hook. Otherwise it ends up being a big wad of crap by time you get somewhere!

My saddle rack is in the back like yours and I hate it. We always carry a bunch of stuff with us so I have to stumble through it to get saddles in and out. One of those swing out saddle racks would of been much easier to deal with I think.

I love my saddle rack it pulls out and then you can get to everything else. I would love a better way or maybe more blanket holders. After trail riding and all the blankets are wet. One goes on the bar and the rest on the saddles

That's what my husband says too. He loved the tip out one we had in the Logan. I never used it tipped out. I stepped up into the trailer and put my saddles on the rack. If it was tipped I couldn't reach up to the third and fourth teir where mine sat. Weenie arms!

I agree I like plenty of space for blankets and pads. The last trailer had a swing out blanket bar and I loved that. I could get a pile of blankets on them!

I understand that...being trailerless sucks!

I am thankful for having a trailer, I am just trying to get some ideas on how to configure one because ours is pretty basic and want to fix it up.

I put a laminate floor in my tack room and like it very much,
I pulled out the old carpet and used it for a pattern.
If you do this, I suggest getting the new, better laminate that is heavier and does not have to be glued down, you just lay it and it stays.

That looks nice! I like it!
Thanks for the tip. I despise carpeting, it grosses me out, it is never clean! When we buy a house it will not have carpeting. LOL
