    I certainly will be, if you would like to check it out here is my you tube:

    RichardsMetalWorks - YouTube

    Videos of the build process on there.

    And as far as the truck dissappearing, well I am not too worried about it with this guy on duty!

    I tow my Exiss aluminium 2H with dressing room with a 4-Runner V8 2003. Unfortunately, they didn't make the V8 anymore after 2005 and recent models can't pull this much. This is my rig when moving just one horse.

    Pros: Easy to tow, manoeuver and park anywhere, love the size of this combination. The trailer is appealing to the horses, bright and airy. I can camp in the dressing room if need be.
    Cons: gas guzzler...

    To be safer, I have a weight distribution system, air springs for my suspension and an anti-sway bar.
    When we carry 2 horses, we use the pick up: GMC 2500HD diesel

    I subscribed to your channel on YouTube :)
    (we recently moved back from TX too, I think I even shed a tear when I seen the casino lights..LOL!)
    Like I said, very jealous...someday.. my dad had a 72 that he bought brand new and we did everything as kids in that pickup, I learned to drive in it(and a flat fendered 40's Willy's Jeep). I tried to buy it from him in my 20's for a project truck and he would never sell it to me.
    I thought it would be so cool to have one and an 'ol Miley horse trailer of the same vintage for a "go to town" rig :)

    I get you, my dad used to have an 83 GMC K30 dually with a 454 and a 4 speed, I wanted that truck so bad, he refused to sell it to me. I used it all the time to haul material all over the state for his business, put over 50,000 miles on that truck when I was in high school.

    I have always loved the old Willy's wagons, had one for a while. Wound up getting rid of it when I had to close my shop down after getting in a bad car accident 2 years ago.

    That would make for a very cool rig for sure.

    I actually just bought my own first horse trailer today, but we have the exact same combination of horse and trailer as our friend. It worked great when we would borrow it!

    First is my truck, 2007 Ford F150. Great truck, but it is a gas guzzler!


    Second is the trailer, Outback by Circle J Trailers. It is a great two horse trailer with a huge tack room.
