Portax  SKA WCF

The Portax SKA  offers the most generous tack cupboard of the regular Portax models, accessible from both outside and inside the trailer.  It is designed for the horse to 1.82m/18 hands. A hot-dipped galvanized steel chassis, with the World Class WCF suspension provides a larger trailer with the ultimate smooth ride.    GVWR of 2400kg/5291lbs.


What Makes the Portax SKA WCF Unique?

Looking for more storage in a Portax- look no further than the Portax SKA!  Sporting one full height person door on the right side with the access to your tack locker outside on the left.  An access door from inside the trailer, accesses the back end of the cupboard easily!  The new re-design in 2023 offers an even larger tack locker than before!  Enjoy the versatility of the swinging stall panels that hang from the central post- allowing you to easily tack a horse on the trailer, add or remove shipping bandages or groom your horse. The icing on the trailer cake is the ability to simply switch from a rear ramp entry to a step-up with the pull of a pin! It is easy to see why this is such a popular Portax model in North America.

The entire trailer sits atop the elite WCF suspension, which keeps the road chatter where it belongs- at the level of the road, not bothering your horses legs. Use of suspension design from the automotive industry such as trailing arms, coil springs, rubber dampers and added gas shocks, sets Böckmann apart from other trailer brands.  Added features for your horses include a roof vent to draw air into the trailer, plus two sliding lateral windows and a rear storm canvas. All 3 features allow you to adjust air flow. Side wall & divider panels are padded as are the chest bars, with trailer tie rings mounted at the chest bar bracket for ease of clearing sinuses – creating a comfortable travel stall.  Hay net rings in the roof, a bright, wide airy horse stall with adjustable stall bar settings make the Portax SKA an easy ride for your horses!

Saddle storage offers a unique swivel-out saddle rack, for both English and western saddles. Both access doors to the storage cupboard have hooks on the door, broom with telescopic handle, shovel, stool, crop holder and internal cupboard light complete the kit of this generous tack cupboard.

The Portax E has a galvanized steel chassis frame. The steel chassis secures the aluminum floor panels. Under the floor, there are longitudinal bars as well as cross-member pieces to provide the greatest strength.


The Portax SKA WCF has two 33” wide stalls + 7’7” internal height. The saddle chest sits in the wide nose of the trailer and is accessible from the Driver side, and from inside the stall.  Full height groom door to the right.  Air Vent + two sliding lateral windows allow air to flow into the trailer. A panoramic window is placed lower in the bow to reduce glare from sunlight and vehicle headlights. A hay ring in the roof, in front of each horse stall, plus a bracket on top of the saddle chest offer different positions to tether hay bags or hay nets. Rings for trailer ties are found at the level of the chest bar.  This allows the horses to lower their heads for balance and clear their sinuses.
