Can someone tell me if the newer trailers have larger stalls and how do the different brands vary? Are some bigger than others and how does 8 wide compare to 7 wide? Any help would be appreciated thanks!

I think you can bet that 7 wide vs. 8 wide is going to get you a narrower stall. At least for me that was the case. If you're trailer shopping, you probably just need to go measure.  My trailer has living quarters and is a bit under 7 wide.  The first stall is so narrow it's practically unuseable. I doubt you can say that newer trailers equal wider stalls in a general statement.

The most often found dimensions in the industry seems to be 39" of wall length per stall. This is not the perpendicular measurement between the dividers, which will be less, more like 34". The length of the stall can be varied by the degree of slant. An 8' wide trailer adds length but not necessarily width, and some of the stalls are dealing with the interior wheel wells. The only variation on the 39" wall length that I have found is the Hawk, which uses 44".

Many of our customers, as do we ourselves, have large horses. We frequently add two or three inches per stall to the trailer length, making the stalls wider and a bit longer. If you see a figure about the length of a slant stall, be aware that it is measured from the front corner to the rear corner, not the length of the divider itself, which is less.

Keep in mind that if mangers are present, they also reduce for the effective room your horse has in the length of the stall. Mangers provide a place to feed your horses and some extras storage room under the manger. The downside we have found is that on long trips, some horses (could be the majority of horses) like to drop their head to rest ... and the manger does not allow a horse to do that. Knowing what we know now, we would opt to not have mangers in our trailer.

On a slant load trailer with inner fenders (all wider than 7') mangers can be very helpful to keep a horse from trying to climb on the fender. Just another point to consider before you don't have them. Have seen some trailers built without mangers to accomodate larger/longer horses and the owners end up concerned about the fender at the front of some of the horses.
