Not sure about a cattle trailer, but for a good trailer for a reasonable price you could try https://qualitycustomtrailer.com.au/ at Minto/ Campbelltown
I have a 7x4 box trailer which is now 8 years old and more than happy with the quality.

Honda are paying him a Shitload of money and they wont want him on a Ducati for instance.
You would expect they have realised the other riders they have can't ride the thing any better than Marc with a buggered shoulder.
They need someone else as well, as without Marquez they are nowhere.

Wont be surprised to see Joan Mir there next year.
I back a fit Marquez well ahead of him still however.

I reckon he'll wake up one day, during recovery and realise the time has come. It's going to take a big call though, from someone so skilled and competitive.

I think he will get to testing later in the year and his eyes will open, hes not the kinda bloke to just ride around like 95% of the field are these days... I also think Honda will run out of patience

His time dominating the field like he has previously, is definitely done I agree.
He is however still one of the best on the planet if fit.
He has achieved alot by being the only person who can push the front of a motorcycle that hard and stay on board.
I think it is now probably harder to catch the front with the evolution of tyres, and more importantly the added down force wings have provided.
He is no longer strong enough with that shoulder either.
I still hope to see him back at the front on occasion after the surgery but don't expect to see him ever dominate again as he once did.
It was great to watch and I hope to see a bit more wtf in future, but yes the body is not going to let him do it like he has previously.
I do not want to see him physically destroyed and would hope he moderates himself a bit.

Having   had a bit to do with cattle in a past life, and have moved them around in a dual axle trailer with stock crate, this is the minimum type of set up you would require...

https://armstrongtrailers.com.au/trailers/stock-crate-livestock-cattle-trailers-for-sale-in-bendigo/

It would probably give you a load capacity of about 1200kg.  A heavy cow weighs in about at least  600kg.  12 month old  vealers 250 - 350kg.

You would need to add the centre divider option, because if you're moving a single 600kg or so beast around, the last thing you want to experience whilst on the move is it moving from the front of the trailer to the rear....

You would probably also need to have the rear door panel hinged so it could be opened to give a full width entry, otherwise you would probably have to unbolt it and remove whenever you wanted to load the SBS.

Do not under any circumstances carry large cattle in a trailer without overhead bars fitted...... Seeing them go over the side is not a good experience.

Personally I would not put large cattle in a horse float.

Said it before but his time is up.. hate to say it but hes a young bloke with a long life ahead of him.

So hes out for this year, and chances are still recovering early in new season. Not good for sponsors to stay on..

Now that zook has bailed there is a few good options for replacement riders. Even midpack miller will be looking for a seat

I dont feel hes getting good advice from the people around him.
its happened before will happen again.
