So I am getting my 4 horse back from my dad. He has been using it the past few years for his buissiness and now that I am going to be showing again, I'm taking it back.
It is an older 4 horse stock trailer (bumper pull). He took out the center divider for hauling junk. I am putting in a new floor on it and redoing the wiring. I'm going to try and see if I can add the divider that seperates the trailer in half (front and back) but I'm not sure if I can.
So here's some questions
-Is there any way I could turn the front half of the trailer (where there is a side exit) into some sort of tack room? I was thinking I could put in a saddle rack and fix up the feeders to hold grooming supplies. Has anyone ever done this? I know it's a strange hick idea, but I thought you guys would know
-What would be the best way to trailer him in an open four horse. There is no divider down the center anymore to seperate the front half into two. He has been hauled in slant loads lately which I plan on saving for, but in the meantime, I usually just tye him towards the tail end of the trailer. Not sure if there is a safer way.
-This is a big old heavy trailer. I have to add a trailer hitch and everything to my boyfriends van. It is a 84 GMC 2500 (i think) van. I was looking at the towing capacity for a class II hitch, and it said 3,000 pounds. My dad claims that it will be fine, but should I go for a class III? I've never done this before so I am clueless.
-Has anyone ever installed a towing package onto their truck/van before? Right now, parts are coming out to about $250 am I going to need to take it to a shop to do it?
Sorry for all the questions
