We have a 28 ft horse trailer w/ liviing quarters and we drive a 2500 Silverado 4x4 HD diesel truck and we don't have any trouble.

As far as a horse trailer you need to do a lot of research on it. I have a friend who bought a brand new horse trailer and she was excited what a great deal she got on it. As she was pulling it home the fancy hub caps came off all but one. She has had a lot of trouble w/ different things breaking on it. It is three years old now and most of the things doesn't work on it. She has had to replace all the tires and many other things. She says she didn't get such a great deal after all. I want say the name because they are no longer in business. They are the ones with a big horse head decal on the side of the trailer.

When you find one you like research it and make sure that it will hold up.

I have the same and it's fine for camping. My only difficulty is that DH needs a CPAP to sleep, but we've used a generator for that in the recent past. I guess I don't need a small "apartment", like the LQ would be, since we done tons of canvas tent camping in the past I figure that this was just a step up from that.

Here's the truck type I've seen with bigger trailers:

We have a Logan 4 horse 15' LQ that is steel frame, we pull with a 09 3500 Chevy.

It depends on what size, and build. Aluminum is going to be lighter then a Steel Framed trailer.

We really want to get a mini Freightliner or International...because it is a lot of weight for the truck with 2-3 horses and a front slot full of hay, tack full, and mangers with other supplies.

We have a gooseneck, 3 horse slant with a 12 foot short wall. We pull it with a GMC 2500 H.D. Duramax diesel. We've hauled all over the country and have never had a problem with pulling this trailer with our truck. Total weight of the trailer fully loaded with horses is 20,000 pounds.

The motor in a 2500 & 3500 will be the same.

The frame/legal weight restrictions will be your biggest issue that will determine if you need to go up to a heavier truck.

Another thing with LQ're tacking on an extra 10+ feet to your rig so now you're pretty much committed to owning, maintaining, registering 2 trailers since you don't wana drag that 35' LQ trailer to the show/vet/for a day ride
