I probably should have qualified my statement, that with a Dodge you shouldn't haul a square nose GN. When I got my GN hitch installed, I was told by the owner of the company who has been working on horse trailers for over 30 years, said that because of where the axles are on the Dodge, you can't pull a square nosed GN. My trailer has a tapered nose, so I am able to pull it, but I can't do the kinds of turns that you can with a long bed. The original poster has a very short bedded truck, don't remember the model, but the bed is very short and the trailer has a square nose. She has been told by professionals that it won't work and needs to be adapted. So it's not just me saying she needs to make some adaptations.
I've done some riding in Wyoming (loved it!)and it always amazed me when I saw some of the rigs in use. I was impressed with the way they could load way more horses than the trailer was rated for, and they came out just fine. What part of Wyoming are you from? I did a bunch of week long trips, riding parts of the Pony Express trail, Oregon trail, Outlaw trail, and my favorite up in the Dunoir... where I got my screen name prettiest place in the world.
