I have a 2 horse feather lite slant bumper pull I got one that is as long as a 3 horse but they moved the tack room wall back one horse space to make it a 2 horse while giving me a large tack room that I had made into a living quarters. I also have a door that leads from the front tack room to the horse compartment. We put a kitchen counter across the front (where the trailer comes to a point) , there is a sink and faucet too, there are pine cabinets under the counter, inside the cabinets we have a large water tank on its side, hot water heater and a pump, on the wall opposite the tack room door, I have a 6 foot couch with a very large mirror above it. We wired the trailer for electric just like a camper, insulated it then paneled it. I also have a roof air conditioner/heater. I have wall to wall carpeting. We put a 15 inch flat panel TV on the wall above the kitchen sink. When I get to the show (I usually go to 3 day shows) and unload my horse and put him in the barn I sweep out the horse compartment and put a precut wall to wall indoor outdoor carpet down. I have a porta potty that goes back there. I put a bungie cord on the bars of my back door to the bars of the back window... this makes the door open and close very nicely. I also have a small refrigerator in the 2nd stall (I only haul 1 horse) This is a perfect set up for 1 person and 1 horse.. I hang all of my show clothes in the back. I put a folding lawn chair in the back. I come and go through the back door, this way I can take off my muddy or dusty shoes in the back before going to my living/kitchen in front. This is why the door that goes from the front to the back is so important. All slant loads have a rear tack because that corner of the trailer is empty space since the horses are slanted. You can also keep the tack in the front but then you would have stinky tack taking up the place you could have for a living quarters. The door you want on you tack room is called a camper door. It is a nice door and includes a screen door. Great for hot days when you electric is not hooked up for air. Roof vents over the horses are very important. Since heat rises the vents suck out the heat and keep your horses cooler I have several people come to me and ask to look in my trailer at every show because they thing it is neat to see how we put a living quarters in a small bumper pull!

2. What type of horse trailer is safe to pull with a Surburban?

First off, you will need a "tag along" trailer, not a gooseneck trailer. After that, its not so much the type but the weight of the trailer. You need to know the vehicles maximum towing capacity and maximum tongue weight. Then you need to make sure that the trailer (when loaded with horses and equipment) does not exceed those limits. Horse trailers usually have electric brakes and you will need to have the proper electrical hook-up on the suburban so that the brakes and brake lights and turn signals all work on the trailer

3. can my 2007 escalade tow a 3 horse, horse trailer with 3 average weight horses?

Escalade Towing Capacity = 7,700 lbs Avarage Horse Weight = 900 - 1500 lbs. Horse Trailer Weight = 1500 - 2000 lbs Max (1500 X 3) 2000 = 6,500 lbs You are good to go.

Know Any Good Places for a Horse Trailer?
Get a rapport going with different trailer sales people in your area. A good one should understand the major sale it is and therefore not expect you to make a decision with the first visit. I just bought a brand new trailer last summer - and it took me 4 years of budgeting and looking about until I found what suited me. They should be able to tell you how to figure the max weight of trailer and load by use of the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). Do not let anyone tell you a wood floor is better or worse than an aluminum floor - they both take the same amount of care and can have the same hazards. Both should be cleaned out and looked at yearly - the horse urine causes rot and oxidation just as readily on wood or aluminum. An Aluminum trailer will weigh less than a steel one. Consider the needs of the horse first - your comfort last. For me, I chose a Cimarron. These trailers are made with square aluminum tubing which is stronger than rectangular - their supports are closer throughout the trailer than other manufacturers. I liked the rubber lining - it came up higher than others so the horses being hauled did not end up with silver butts from rubbing on the wall above the rubber when traveling - they also had larger off-side windows than their competitors. Their door hinges all have grease zirts that allow you to lubricate them to keep them in good shape. For me, the 7.5 foot wide trailer was better than the 7 foot wide - more space for the horse (you would not believe how much just a half foot makes) and the 8 foot wide really is tough to haul as many secondary roads are only required to be 8 ft tall - I hauled Mom's 8 footer thru the Pennsylvania hills during construction - I do not EVER care to do that again. If purchasing a used trailer, inspect it top to bottom - crawl under and look at the floorboards from bottom as well as cleaned out inside - ask to have bedding and mats removed. Look for rust or broken boards - used steel trailers should be lined with plywood for safety to disallow a hoof going through. Look at as much of the wiring as possible - are there any taped joints or cracked coating? Ask about the wheel bearing packing - when was the last time it was done? check the tires, etc. If looking at used ones, the older Featherlites, sundowners and sooners are better built than the newer ones. I would say about the mid 90's these started getting made cheaper or more for the humans than the horses. One that have tapered or bullet fronts are easier on the gas mileage. Also consider whether your horses are used to ramp or step up. I've seen a number of horses used to ramps that will not load - even to the point of injury - into step up trailers. I know a gal with what used to be a real nice steel trailer and ramp. the ramp and it's springs were the first thing to go. Check out tack storage as well - if you get a nice trailer that's not fun to get tack into and out of, you wo not have fun. Check out all the websites - if buying new - use a manufacturer that's NATM certified - most national brands are now. Look at them first for what they show first - is it the nice human comforts or those of the horse? Call the place and ask the manufacturer to tell you what is best about theirs and listen - it all counts even if you are buying used. Also - you can find a GREAT trailer, but purchase it from an awful seller. Sometimes there will be problems, how easy will it be to get it serviced? How does the manufacturer stand behind them? I friend bought a wonderful Featherlite, but it had a problem in the LQ with a leak. They took it back to the place they bought it from. They were not nice to him, fixed the trailer shoddily, then would not stand behind their work. He wrote a letter to Featherlite, they never responded. MONTHS later, they called him after he would gone frantic trying to get the thing fixed wanting to help him - he was done with it and had sold the trailer and told them just how he felt. Within weeks Featherlite pulled their trailers from that dealership as they would had repeated complaints. Likewise, my mother bought a beautiful 4 Star trailer. I leaked and the dealer could not for the life of him find out where it was leaking. Mom had taken it back again and again without success. She finally saw the 4Star rep at Congress. He got in the trailer on that day which happened to be rainy as she drove down the road, saw the problem and got it fixed - it was not fun, but it got fixed. So ask as many people as you can locally what their opinions of their local dealers are. Good luck -1. Can i legally carry a handgun in my car or in a hotel in texas.?First, you have my deepest sympathy for having to work in El Paso... I am not a lawyer, but my interpretation of the law tells me that you can legally have a handgun in your car and hotel room with the conditions spelled out below. The laws cited below make no differentiation between residents and non-residents. Texas law follows what is generally known as "castle doctrine." That is, your "home is your castle" and you are allowed to have a handgun in it and can use it with deadly force if circumstances warrant. Your car and hotel room are, by extension, considered part of your "castle." There are conditions that must be met or it is a violation of Title 10 of the Texas Penal Code: "Sec. 46.02. UNLAWFUL CARRYING WEAPONS. (a) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his or her person a handgun, illegal knife, or club if the person is not: (1) on the person's own premises or premises under the person's control; or (2) inside of or directly en route to a motor vehicle that is owned by the person or under the person's control. (a-1) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his or her person a handgun in a motor vehicle that is owned by the person or under the person's control at any time in which: (1) the handgun is in plain view; or (2) the person is: (A) engaged in criminal activity, other than a Class C misdemeanor that is a violation of a law or ordinance regulating traffic; (B) prohibited by law from possessing a firearm; or (C) a member of a criminal street gang, as defined by Section 71.01. (a-2) For purposes of this section, "premises" includes real property and a recreational vehicle that is being used as living quarters, regardless of whether that use is temporary or permanent. In this subsection, "recreational vehicle" means a motor vehicle primarily designed as temporary living quarters or a vehicle that contains temporary living quarters and is designed to be towed by a motor vehicle. The term includes a travel trailer, camping trailer, truck camper, motor home, and horse trailer with living quarters." Note that the gun must not be in plain view in the vehicle and you can not be committing any crimes (other than Class C misdemeanors, such as speeding...but go to far over the limit and it wo not be a Class C anymore....) Also note that paragraph (a-2) states that "premises" can be temporary, which would include a hotel room. A final warning: Castle doctrine only applies while you are in your vehicle or premises and when walking directly between them. You should not stop for dinner or other business while carrying the handgun. It would not hurt to review all of chapter 46 in Title 10 since it also lists a number of prohibited weapons to carry that you might not expect, such as bowie knives (what about the Alamo?!) or butterfly knives (a switchblade by Texas definition). Also, I've included a link to Texas CHL laws if you are having difficulty sleeping at night.2. what should I look for when buying a horse trailer?Make sure your horses fit in it comfortably. Thoroughbreds and tall horses need extra height; heavy set horses need wider stalls. I personally do not like slant loads. First, my thoroughbreds are too long to fit comfortably in everyone I've ever tried, so if you want one make sure the stall length is adequate. Second, I hate not being able to get to the front stall. Third, if you have a difficult loader they are much harder to load into. Not only do you have to get the horse in the trailer, you have to maneuver him into a particular position, tie him, leave him to walk around the gate, then hope he stays put while you shut the partition on him. Fourth, as with any trailer with moveable partitions, a smaller horse may get himself under the partition, with disastrous results. Just my opinion.3. is there a hybrid truck that i can use to haul a horse trailer?I think so but wait if your truck wo not go up hill you will have the horses to pull ya to the top
