By Sandy Jennings BCC Staff Writer

Back 40 Trailers, located at 3120 Memorial Blvd. in Kerrville, is known for their motto “we service what we sell.” This complete agriculture supply store originated in 1985, when Charlie Bierschwale brought his ranching background and 20 years of experience teaching vocational agriculture to fruition in the agriculture superstore.
Now owned by Steve Bauer, the family oriented store is still designed to meet all of your trailer and ranching needs.
“As a family owned business with personal services, we strive to meet all of our customers’ individual needs,” Bauer said. “We sell based on the quality of service and can help find the trailer that is the best choice for you.”
Back 40 offers a variety of top brands in the trailer and truck industry including Top Hat, Forest River, CM Trailers, CM Truck Beds, Frontier Truck Gear, Ranch Hand and Harbor Utility. Their diverse inventory includes aluminum, ATV, cargo, dump, equipment, gooseneck, landscaping, stock and utility trailers and auto haulers and truck beds.
“We are the only truck bed and trailer company in the area,” Bauer said. “We will gladly service all your trailer and truck bed needs. We have a full-service center on-site and can provide a variety of services including trailer repairs and truck equipment installations. We also have the ability to order custom parts for trailers.”
Back 40 Supply, a vendor for TexTrail Trailer Parts, B&W Trailer Hitches, Frontier Truck Gear and Ranch Hand Truck Accessories, offers a massive inventory of parts including hubs, axles, hitches, grease caps, safety hooks, door locks, cargo control and more.
“Our company carries hundreds of parts for many different makes of trailers,” Bauer said. “We also carry many different brands of parts for you to choose from. So whether you’re looking to gear up a trailer or new truck, we’ve got the parts you need and the brands you can rely on.”
Back 40 helps customers find the parts they are looking for, whether it’s in the store, or needs to be custom ordered.
“Our sales associates are dedicated to finding exactly the part you need whether it’s a stock trailer, a well-used utility trailer, or anything in-between,” Bauer said.
In the service area, Back 40 offers services including standard trailer repairs, trailer tune-ups, wiring, wheel and tire repair and installation, axle and suspension work, truck bed installations and truck gear installations.
“Our professional shop installs and repairs every product we sell,” Bauer said. “Our company offers full service repair and installation of truck beds, trailer mounts, and trailer parts. We pride ourselves on our customer service and professional finish.”
Back 40 sells truck beds for ER, TM, SK, RD and SS models. Truck parts sold at the store include Frontier and Ranch Hand grille guards and Ranch Hand front bumper replacements.
“Our professional team of trained service technicians can diagnose the problem and get you back up and running in no time,” Bauer said. “We’re dedicated to quality service and our customers and we take the time to make sure things are done right, while trying to get you back up and running as soon as possible.”
Expanding the business to provide for your animals’ needs, Back 40 opened Double L Ranch and Wildlife Feed, giving customers an opportunity to shop for food and supplies for their four-legged family members.
“We have food and supplies for all kinds of critters from horses and cows to cats, dogs, rabbits and even deer,” Bauer said. “As a large-scale company that continues to grow, we hope you’ll choose us for all your agricultural and hauling needs.
