A friend of mine has a Lakota and loves it. I admit I pretty much just sleep and shower in the trailer the rest of my time is spent outside

A lot of the trailers with living quarters I've seen could have me a down payment on a house. I'd rather rough it

I'm another tent camper but have been thinking about a small 3 horse with living quarters. Maybe a weekender. I haven't looked much.

We use my trailer for vacations and camping trips as well as horse shows. That's why we are considering the upgrade to the Lakota. The shows I go to are 2 and 4 days so staying in the campground saves tons of money and my husband and son get bored. Having a living quarter would make their lives much easier. This summer we spent two weeks in the trailer when we went to SC for vacation. We loaded the rhino, two dirt bikes, three bicycles, and a bbq grill in the back and had a blast. Even the dog came. It did get a little messy near the end of the trip but I think in the two weeks we spent goofing off, it only cost us about 2K tops and that includes gas and food. We have a national park pass that gave us discounts on campgrounds.

I think if you were to buy one it could definitely be worth the money. The Lakota we looked at is 46k but has 2 pull outs so it's huge.

We used to do the tent camping or sleeping on the ground. The older I get the more I like all the amenities.

I started out in my 16ft stock trailer. Then got my first 2h with a 4ft dressing room GN. It was better than that cold stock. I now have an 03 Exiss Event 3h with an 8ft LQ. The only things I would change would be a slide out, a bigger fridge and a curb side door. But it's paid for so I can't see replacing it. It has been a good trailer with no issues. I bought a hydraulic jack for it. But haven't put it on yet.. Yes I does get harder to jack up the older you get.

I've always been a bit of a minimalist.
My "trailer" (or's interchangeable ), which carries me into pretty much any terrain I encounter (the distance determines how many days it takes to finally get there) and space big enough to park in is seldom a problem . My "living quarters" (unless the weather is suppose to be nice...i.e. Not which case I don't bother with the tent and just roll up in my blanket which doubles as my saddle blanket). The tent is my luxury (this is the "large" one since the dog came along and it was only a couple days out)....use to just use a ground cloth staked over a cord, but I've gotten old and now I prefer more cover if it rains.
Oh, the dog is just there because it was just a local bushwhacking trip for training (no actual road miles) so she was allowed to come along.

Have a 3H sundowner with weekender Not big but serves my needs well. The first stall I use mostly for storage,generally only hauling 1-2 horses. Like that it is easy to haul with 3/4 ton.

If the trailer is designed for lqs at the factory the holding tanks will be even with the supports under the trailer so you don't have issues with them dragging the ground. That's the way ours is made and we've had no problems but, yes, if they place the holding tanks under the supports it is. Make that one of your things to watch for.

I travel light too, not as minimalist as lbs, but no living quarters!

My first trailer was a 16' stock. Some plastic & duct tape turned the front into a nice big sleeping area & the horses used the back. It worked great but I got a bigger horse & needed a taller trailer.

So now I pull a 2 horse Brenderup, the smallest model without a tackroom, with my 2003 F150 4.8L 2 wheel drive. I have a truck tent that goes over the bed of the truck, or I set up a cot right in the horsetrailer. I have a solar shower for washing up, and eat food that doesn't need cooking

I recently purchased a 1999 custom van that has an actual folding bed in the back. It's very comfy to sleep in, and once my teens move out I plan to pull out the middle seats for more space for tack 'n storage. I also plan to put an awning on it.

I love my Brenderup because it is so lightweight, and easy to manuver anywhere, but tall enough for even large horses.

Those big living quarter rigs look neat, but they are very pricey, plus needing a biger truck, plus more parking room, just too much trouble just to go ride & camp a night or two.
