Our first trailer was a two-horse side-by-side with tack compartment. When started camping with that trailer we slept in a tent on air mattresses. Then up graded to a 3 horse slant gooseneck with a tack room and up graded to a 3/4 ton 4x4 pickup. We loaded camping equipment into the tack room, plus grain for the horses, all the hay we needed went in the bed of the truck. We bought a queen-sized air mattress that fit perfectly in the space over the hitch of the trailer. We did have to get a folding utility ladder to get up into and down out of the sleeping area. When we went camping for several days usually 4 day outings we went with friends who had a cab-over camper on their truck. We'd take groceries that we put in the truck campers refrigerator and cook on the stove in the camper. We high lined the horses when we had the trees close by our camp, otherwise we tied them to the trailer which they never seemed to uncomfortable. I sure miss the camping we once did, too.
ETA: We also did do a lot of 2 day, all weekend camping. I miss that experience, too.
