Featherlite Trailers is an all-aluminum trailer manufacturer, located in Cresco, Iowa. It is the oldest all-aluminum trailer brand in the United States, and today manufactures horse trailers and a range of speciality trailers.
The company was established in 1973 in Oklahoma, when it built the first all-aluminum gooseneck livestock trailer. In 1988 the company was acquired by Featherlite Manufacturing of Grand Meadow, Minnesota, relocating to Cresco, Iowa in 1993.
The company created the first ever custom aluminum race car semi trailer for NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt and team owner Richard Childress. Today Featherlite is the official trailer of NASCAR, supplying 85% of the NASCAR Sprint Cup teams.
In 2006, the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of Universal Trailer Corporation.
