For one american vehicles are not engineered anything like european vehicles. American vehicles don't last nearly as long and correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure european vehicles weigh more. If I could afford it I would have a Ford shipped over from Europe, built very different.

G-wagons are European vehicles...

Seems like if Crimsonsky wanted to use a G-wagon, if she paired it with something like QOS' Brenderup trailer, she'd be a happy camper.

Here's from a US Brenderup website stating you can haul them with your usual car.:
http://www.theydeservethebest.com/brenderup/towing.html

Last year I was looking at getting horse trailer, and my husband cringed, because "then we'll have to get a new truck too!". And I told him I was just planning on using my Outback - I'd seen it done many times. He looked at me like I'd grown 3 heads. I'm starting to get it now. The US trailers seem to be designed in a way that requires much more... oomph.

I haul my Brenderup Royal TC with a Toyota Rav4 V6 with a factory towing package. I have NEVER EVER had a problem hauling with my RAV. I have had to apply brakes hard ONCE going around a curve with an on ramp - idiot in a Mini Van pulled out in front of me and putted. I wanted to drop kick her for a field goal. My trailer was loaded with my 1150 lb gelding. The trailer slowed when I hit the brakes without fish tailing.

I bought it in Austin from "they deserve the best" Liebie and Lucas. I hauled it home on Good Friday with a STIFF wind and I had never hauled a trailer. I did have a very experienced hauler with me but I drove. Didn't have one bit of a problem.

It was pricey but I felt like I saved $10k by not having to also have a separate truck. It works for me but I would also LOVE to have a small LQ! I camp in the B'up all the time and it would be nice to have a toilet and shower!!

Good to know QOS! I appreciate your feedback. They only come in one and two horse models though, right? :/ I have three horses. Boo

That is correct. One and two horse. They have quit building them in the US. The parts were shipped from Denmark to Midland, TX and assembled there. Last year they abruptly stopped shipping them. You can still pick up a used one or contact Liebe and Lucas as Kay is selling a French trailer similar to the Brenderup.

I will never get rid of my B'up even if I were able to get an LQ. I get a few "what the heck is that" looks and questions. One guy came up and said it looked like a Constanoga Wagon! LOL

Just checked out the Lucas and Liebe site and the Fautras do have 3 and 4 horse trailers. The St. George trailer comes in 1 and 2 horse models.
