Horse trailer with Living Quarters

I'm looking into a gooseneck four horse with living quarters but they seem kinda big an heavy.. Does anyone know more detailed info into them or own one? What do you use to pull? I'd be thankful for info please. :)

All different brands, all different features, all different weights. Just have to do your home work and look at the specs of the individual ones you are looking at.

Really depends on trailer size & construction. Research your truck towing capacity & spec weights of the trailer. Don't forget to add weight to trailer as if it was loaded with tack ,feed & horses. We have a 3H aluminum trailer with weekender LQ & we haul with Chev 3/4 ton, with no trouble. I was watchful when looking at trailers not choose a trailer that would exceed it's tow capacity.Trailer isn't big but has amenities we needed

Didn't you just say in chat that you are having a hard time affording hay and feed for your horses? How are you able to buy a new trailer with LQ?

I'm going to refrain from comment about previous posts

On the truck/trailer end of things:

How often do you plan on going camping? Or is the LQ just to keep up with the Johnsons next door? 2 horse bumper pull provided plenty of space for 2 cots when I went camping this fall. A canopy or an awning off the side of the trailer works for cooking and relaxing outside.

On the truck: you will have to check what your truck can legally tow, might need to install extra leaf springs in the rear to make it tow smoother at its max, and to tow a heavier trailer you might also have to pay higher registration fees on the truck depending on the state. My truck is a class 2 I believe and to to a gooseneck loaded I would have to bump up to a weight class 3. If you go to a 1 ton then you have higher insurance and registration costs but can handle a larger trailer. The motor will be no different between a 3/4 and a 1 ton truck. So best to ask the dealer & the DMV don't just rely on the dealer they want to sell the trailer once it's off their lot not their problem if you get a ticket

Great post tim62988. I have a 4star 4 horse, no living quarters. Don't camp often enough to warrant it. I do have a mattress in the neck but would love to find a used canopy to have put on the side. They are expensive!

Unless things have changed in the past few years, insurance for a 1 ton is(was) cheaper than a 3/4 ton. That was from my father who sold insurance. A 1 ton is usually considered a farm vehicle and that's why it is cheaper.

Like others have said, it depends on the specific trailer. Some can only be hauled with a rig like a mini semi, larger than a 1 ton. I'll see if I can find a pic of what they are.
