    We build all types of bumber trailors and yes if you find a very good builder you can get them built with a shower and toilet in them

    The LQ are awesome to have - especially if you do a lot of showing, or a lot of horse camping, like we do. However there IS too much of a good thing. I love my trailer when it's parked and I am using it, but I hate HATE HATE pulling it, or god forbid having to back it. I have a 4 horse slant with 28 ft LQ on the front - I have toilet and shower, kitchen, sleeping for 6 including a massive queen bunk in the GN, a ton of space in my LQ, and the stalls in back fit even my massive 1,800 lb gelding comfortably. But a trailer that long (41 ft length total) takes a lot of planning to use. When you go to a show, or camping, you have to scout the area first to make sure you have room to drive it in and out, and a parking space large enough for it. You have to plan your route to make sure no turns are too tight for the trailer to make. Not to mention the upkeep on my truck that pulls it - you have to make sure your truck is rated for pulling the weight of your trailer. LQ are very, very nice to have, if you use them often enough to really make use of them. But every bit of living space inside your trailer is space you have to drag around when you are trying to get somewhere.....make sure to keep that in mind. Good luck!

    In some states, a certain combination of towing vehicle plus trailer gross vehicle weight puts you in a weight class that requires the driver to have a CDL license. With my Duramax and a goosneck horse trailer, I'm pretty much there. But I don't have horses or trailer at this point so that's as far as I checked.
