Nope. You'd need an F650 or bigger.

Call the dealer and ask. I friend of mine pulls a 3 horse with full LQ with is F350 and has had no problem pulling it loaded all over the country.

The difference is that this has slides and is for 4 horses.

That's just it, Iride, it's a lot bigger than the standard trailer with LQ.

I know someone who has a similar model, and she pulls it with an F650.

When in doubt go bigger, not smaller. Plus, I wouldn't trust a dealer to know squat. I'd rather ask a large vehicle mechanic his opinion.

Agreed 100% but an F450 may be plenty - towing capacity of 28,000 lb. That's why I suggested calling the dealer - or Lakota, and ask for their recommendation.

The question shouldn't be "can an F350 pull it" it should be "can an F350 STOP it". I would go for the bigger trucks for a couple of reasons. First, you will destroy a regular pickup pulling this trailer very far. It's probably close to the max tow capacity before you load it with horses. Second, if the vehicle towing the trailer is too light you risk having the trailer push the truck down the hill. The bigger the truck the bigger the brakes and the more it weighs. Also it likely will have a heavier transmission and more gears. When you are pulling heavy loads gears are your friend.

Exactly right, Kevin.

My problem with the F550's etc. are they are really just for hauling because they haven't got the back for hauling hay and everyday use. Any ideas?

I'm in love with this trailer! Have to look into the brand a little more, but it's my favorite after months of searching!

Thanks guys.

Downhill in good weather, maybe a 350 would work.

I'm with SR on this one - go bigger not smaller.
We haul a 2 horse with a tack room in a 3/4 ton and I personally wouldn't even hook up to anything bigger.

Our barn has a 5 horse with smaller living quarters and has a freightliner to haul it. It hauls really nice and I know you could probably get some great deals on a freightliner right now. An F650 would also do you.
