Absolutely we all started somewhere!
Braver the person that asks for advice. :)

I have used ramps and step-ups, and they both work fine. My personal preference is for a step-up as it seems easier to teach the horse to load, and subsequently harder for the horse to invent load evasion techniques

If you can, get one with a separate tack room, or at least tack space. Much much easier than shoving it all in the back of your car. Have fun at the expo, window shopping for trailers is fun

And - stop worrying about your ability to tow. Absolutely everyone started off not being able to do it! We all learn.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
