I don't take offense, and I would never blame anyone for a problem that is MY choice. That's why I'm doing research. It will be my dad's fault if something happens and I am ignorant, but if I am in agreement with him after doing my research, the fault will be mine. I don't intend the fault to lie with anyone but myself, because the horses are my property and I intend to protect what belongs to me. I won't put my blind faith in my dad, and so I wanted to ask you people YOUR opinions, simply because I am a sponge and am absorbing information. I have been reading, and researching. I've read that article someone else posted a few times, but because I'm starting from the bottom up it's difficult to absorb this much information without actually seeing parts and trailers and all that other stuff that goes into it. I was simply curious as to what /your/ opinion was. I won't take that and go with it as if anyone here is a expert, because I don't know you, and if I don't trust my dad on this issue, chances are I'm *really* not going to trust some internet people. If I actually believed you without checking the facts, I'd be a special kind of dummy. Also, I don't want anyone to think I am a spoiled girl that is wanting as much from daddy as possible. I realize that a trailer and truck is no small amount of money, and I view it as an investment that I intend to pay back in full. I am not trying to say that he won't give me what I want and buy me a truck, but considering that I will be paying him back and I will be using it, not him, I think it's fair that he considers my opinion.
Don't think that I'm going to hunt you down and sue you if I take your advice and it results in an accident. I'm seeking information and opinions, but that is where I draw the line. Ultimately it's my choice, and no one else's.
So, if you don't want to say whether it's better or worse, would you mind explaining what exactly you meant by that little paragraph? I'm just trying to see it clearly in my head. You can omit any advice and just tell me what's going on with the vehicle and trailer weight wise, etc, all that mechanical stuff I don't understand. :) I would appreciate it.
Thanks for mentioning the insurance, by the way. I didn't realize that such a thing existed for towing.
