    Class C RV towing

    I am searching for an RV to make camping with and without my horse(s) more enjoyable.

    The biggie for me is a warm shower *bliss* and cold air for me and my dogs, even when there is no power. There is rarely power available when camping with my horse, and I am tired of being hot & sweaty. Plus my dogs are older, house dogs, and don't tolerate the heat well and suffer when left behind.

    So, I was looking at some Class C RVs, and for size and price, they seemed perfect. I can get a 2008, 23' long for around 20K. It is a Ford E350 chassis 5.8L V8 gasburner equiped with a class 3 hitch, and the salesman states can pull 5000 lbs.

    I currently have a Brenderup 2 horse trailer that weighs about 1500 lbs, so with 2 horses, tack & hay we are between 3000-4000 lbs.

    However, I plan to purchase a 3h aluminum stock or stock-combo trailer, weighing 2500 lb +/- and want to be able to haul all three of my horses.

    Currently, I pull my Brenderup with either my 2003 F150 4.6L extended cab or my 1999 Chevy 3500 van with a 7.4L gas engine, both of which struggle a little in the mountains, but do fine with normal highway driving.

    Does anyone have any experience with hauling a horse trailer with an RV?

    I can't spend a lot of money, really 20K is the max I would be willing to spend, and it has to be in perfect condition. I also don't want a super long RV, they also have 28' models, with a Ford E450 chassis 6.8L V10, but they cost more too.

    Looking for help, anyone have info, ideas to share?

    I would check around for a RV with a diesel engine.
