Never thought of that! Yeah, I am pulling with a truck and it may just be the better and less work. Hmmm, I'm going to have to take a look at the "shells" I'd rather keep my horses safe and pull steady then risking that just to add living quarters...

I LOVE this forum thank you guys! Sometimes it's really easy to get ahead of ourselves with things. I definitley think the truck camper I guess they're called would be a great idea. Not too pricey at all, more room, less work and can maintain heat better for us. As cool as the idea sounded after looking into weight behind the axles I just CAN'T risk something happening to my horses. Found a few in my area we're going to check out soon. (:

This has given me an idea! I think I'm going to put fold down bunks on my wall. Simple wood bunks that will fold up an lock in place. Ahhh somewhere to nap between runs.

Why not use a tent, cot, good sleeping bag, and maybe a Mr. Heater?

If I were as far north as you I'd winter camp with a good brand -20 degree bag......such as Marmot, Western Mountaineering, ar Feathered friends all who make very good bags.

My wife and I use Marmot Couloir 800 fill zero degree bags and only turn on the heater just before we go to bed, and just before we get up. A good cot gets you up off the ground and helps you get you a good nights sleep.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I'm with Chevaux on this if you change the trailer it just might make the trailer off balance when you load your horses. This in turn will make the trailer hard to pull.If your like me all your looking for is a place to sleep that's not on the ground in a tent. A air mattress in the back of the truck with a topper is quit nice. I also have one of those pop up canopies with screen around it that is nice for making a place to eat. Many Happy Trails

I have slept in a truck shell before (in the summer) and it does work really well. It wasn't a camper one, just a regular truck cap type. With the windows open a bit, and the back hatch propped open, it let fresh air come in.

The air mattress just fit in the back, so we kept clothes in the truck, which helped keep them from getting damp as well.

Someone already mentioned that cold air comes from the bottom, I would make sure that you put some sort of insulating matt under the mattress. I always seem to forget that until the next morning, when I wake up cold!
