Best LQ horse trailer features?
What do you love (or hate) about your living quarters horse trailer?
Mr. MO and I are considering trading in our 5th wheel camper and our bumper pull horse trailer and getting a LQ horse trailer. I love, love, love my 2 horse Adam Julite with rear and side ramp. It's small and easily maneuverable. There have been a couple of times that I wanted to haul 3 horses though. Also, as my daughter gets older, breed shows are in the future and being able to camp at showgrounds would be perfect. My reservations were size...I was nervous about driving a bigger rig, but honestly I was initially nervous about the BP and I'll be able to adapt with practice. I also didn't want to be stuck pulling a big trailer all the time, especially if I'm just hauling one horse for a lesson. Fortunately I have a relative who has a BP I can use any time. So we're getting closer to placing an order.
Initially I wanted the smallest footprint possible, but honestly the basic LQ with a couch or dinette isn't but a few feet longer than the weekend package, and will be much more comfortable. I already know I definitely want a power jack, and I'm getting side and rear ramps with a swing-out tack room. Also getting drop down windows on both sides because I hate those sliding ones that get stuck. I know I want wheel wells on the outside. Also know I don't want a stud wall...want to be able to take everything out and haul open, etc. No mangers, I have big horses and I tried them out on a friend's slant and mangers won't work, although I'd love to have the extra storage.
But, what about other stuff? Living quarters arrangement? Nifty features I might not even know about? Any tips are greatly appreciated. For once I'd like to do something right the first time! :lol:
