Why is it Europeans will pull a 1300 odd lb brenderup (some of them weigh as much as 2100) with a horse in it with a car.....but Americans cringe at the thought of towing smaller 2 horses with 1 horse in it with plenty of towing capacity?
I hear, it wont stop, wheel base...YOU WILL DIE...and I am just so confused.
I am sure I will get flamed for this and oh well. My situation is I own a pathfinder and before I tow will have a brake box installed. I am getting a 2200 lb trailer and will be trailering a 1200 lb horse. I'll be going to shows once or twice a month. I am starting to work again next year and will then purchase a "tow" vehicle. BUT with 6000 lbs of towing capacity (recently had the whole thing inspected!) I feel safe pulling AND stopping at most 3600 lb behind me in the pathfinder...
I read about people pulling 5500 lb boats and campers around the country and yet I feel like I NEED to go get a Dodge 3500 diesel to pull my trailer around a couple times a month.
