My toyhauler has excessive tongue weight. I figured it was designed like that in case someone loaded the trailer when it wasn't hooked up to a truck to prevent the tongue from lifting. Not ride

Back Woods It does ride pretty smooth. Always kind of wished it had a bagged third axle for going down the road though. It can eat up a 17.5 trailer tire in no time, the stock Michelins are tough but we've had to pickup some misc tires on the road (double coin ) that grenade before the rubber nubs wear off. Planning on going to a 235/15 tire over the 215/75 for some better load capacity at some point. He was somewhere in Ohio and hit a pothole that bent a truck rim so bad it was locking up the seat belts, with load G tires at 120psi. Most of our tire issues happen in Ohio due to their constant state of road "repair" You could say there is some decent tongue weight, my guess would be 4500lb or so.

Back Woods No idea what the tongue weight is but it is quite a bit. The top compartment holds hay (22 bales) and the generator is at the very back.

Back Woods It has 3 windows but we fit 4 horses no problem. If we ran smaller horses it could handle 5 easily. For what we do 6-8 horses are needed. Usually we run two rigs on long runs and split the horse load. Going off the grid takes a lot of supplies to support horses, dogs and 5 people.

87manche IIRC it also has dog kennels in the middle.

Action Fab That's one hell of a trailer for only being a 3 horse! Dayumn.

Back Woods My old man just acid washed his horse trailer and detailed his rig for the weekend. Pictures are kinda big but,

So far I've heard 15k cdn is what she is asking for it. Family mechanic I dealt with when buying mine off the lady has to clean it up first. Said he will start on it next week.

And it 50k miles on it sorry, not 40

Nope but she does have her husbands 02 Ford f350 lariat crew 4x4 with a 7.3 with 40000 miles on it with an aluminum flat deck on that back she will be looking to sell soon. I know a few buddies of mine that are already interested.

About $200 I think. Regardless, nominal. For me, the issue is the 156" wheelbase versus 172" wheelbase on the longbox.

No, but I'd love to. No time to find the right buyer. It's definitely underused and definitely for sale.
