No laugh from me, I can't afford any truck or trailer.

Don't feel to bad. When we started out we relied on others for transport. Finally got a little 2 horse bumper pull that we hauled with my '72 Dodge. Wasn't pretty but it got us there. Then we got a little popup slide in camper that was too small for the truck but it was better then sleeping in a tent. We probably looked pretty silly pulling into places with big trailers and fancy trucks. But we didn't care We're still not to fancy and probably never will be.

I started off borrowing my buddy's home built 4 horse bumper pull. I then bought a used 3 horse bumper pull. As it rusted I bought an Aluminum 3 horse gooseneck, I now have a 4 horse Gooseneck with a 9' LQ. I also have 5 daughters, 3 still at home, So this last trailer was kinda of a neccessity if I wanted them to continue to camp with me.

This year the housing market is really depressed, So I may have to sell my trailer and start over.

I want Tims dream... Can I have one?

I have a white 4-horse slant kieferbuilt with a large dressing room. (gooseneck) I have heat and A/C and an air mattress for sleeping...

I just bought an 06 crew cab white dually chevy (gas) havent put a hitch in it yet. My husband says it'll be awesome. I've been using my dads f-250 and it hauls really great.

I had a chevy that I used but I sortof drove on 95 at like 75 mph in 4-low... apparently that's bad... we still havent replaced the motor and that was almost 4 years ago........

When I went to buy my trailer, I wanted lots and lots of ROOM (i'm much more claustrophobic than my horses, and because of my small stature, I was always elected to lead the horse into the trailer, maneuver under the bar, and climb out of the tiny, tiny, tiny escape door No fun)

So here's what I bought:

It is a great hauling trailer - it rides very balanced. It has windows and doors everywhere - and everything is moveable - it also has a ramp, which the old guys just love - and I love it too!

It's a 2000 Shoop 2H Deluxe. IMO, Shoop trailers give plenty of room for the horses (as well as any claustrophobic owners!) It has two full size doors - one on each side - and a tack bench in the front (enough to store misc. Tack or an english saddle)

PS, we pull it with a 1500 [sub]burban
