Default goat rail wanted

Hello WOG'ers
I'm currently looking for a goat rail to put on my trailer. The trailer is painted to match the coach. Including aluminum trim. But I'm looking for a goat rail to finish off the trailer.

Condition and color are not important. As long as it's not bent up. Steel or aluminum is acceptable.

Can pick it up at Pine Mountain or possible in my travels depending on where it is. Also can pick it up a Q in Jan.

I like this idea!

You should put an air intake on it and really mess with people!

Some square tubing and your local welding shop. Or better yet your local tech high school metal fab / welding class. If you got a goat rail it would have to be cut to fit and re welded anyway.

While I could certainly build a goat rail myself, finding matching material might not be as easy a we think. The bottom rail of my goat rail is not square tubing. It is almost like a c channel. But not quite a c. It'd love to find that material and then just build it myself. With the rest of the tubing readily available, it's a no brainer. But being full timers, I have limited time at any one location. So in the end, it would be easier to find an existing BB goat rail and just cut and reweld it to fit the trailer.

And I like the idea of a matching air intake on the trailer. THAT would be a great conversation piece. I could tell people that it's the air intake for the auxiliary engine in the trailer. I could put a chrome exhaust tip that matches the coach on the trailer too.

Don, Have you tried Cowlays? Last I was there they had 2 WB. Didn't notice if the Goat Rails were there or not. https://colawrvsalvage.com/

Thanks Rick,
if I haven't found one by next spring, I may stop there while I'm in that part of the country.

Don,if the metal does not match perfectly who cares?
nobody will notice,its on top of the trailer.
that bottom channel could be bent up with ease by any good metal shop.


I towed a 1966 ford bronco way back in the day,i built a flat deck on top and build goat rails for it,the deck and the rails were all aluminum.
it looked good,the bronco was painted to match the bus too.

If anyone needs the trim that goes on the sides of a bird- the ones with the little rubber inset, I have a complete set in Weatherford, Tx.
