4-Horse bumper pull - pros and cons
Am thinking about purchasing a 4-Horse slant bumper pull rather than gooseneck, in order to leave my truck bed free for our camper or other purposes. We also motorcycle on longer trips, and would occasionally use the front two stalls for our motorcycle--staying at horse-friendly campgrounds.
My question is, is a 4-horse bumper pull really a good idea?...you don't see very many. I've looked at different manufacturers: Cimarron, 4-Star, Featherlite, and note the axle positioning, from the rear of the trailer, isn't different between a 3-horse and 4-horse trailer, and wonder if lengthening the front end of the trailer puts a lot of extra weight on the hitch, fully loaded.....or, are the trailers constructed so that adding those extra front stalls isn't a big weight shift forward.
Any other things I should be considering? Would really appreciate your thoughts. We drive an F-350 SRW Powerstroke.
