My horse trailer empty is around 13k. Loaded with 3 horses and all our junk it's 17k - 18k. It's 40' long. Basically it's about equal to a 26' camper with a 12' slide in front of the horse area which fits 3 horses and tack. Not as tall as most of the 5ers so wind drag ain't so bad. I just set the cruise at 70 and ride. My stock truck don't mind it at all. I managed 11.5 mpg towing from home to Lexington Ky last year. That's not the worst hills but some pretty decent ones.

I can't find a picture of mine, well not hooked up.

And, the height is 136 inches, not 13' 6"  :-[

Just tow it?

I hope you stay in there too

I feel so inadequate with my camper.

Well, I guess I actually feel just fine, and that is one awesome trailer you have there. You guys with these big ones, towing north of what 17K? That must really be something going up hills. I only tow mine weighing a bit under 8K loaded so it's nothing like what you guys are pulling.
Mine is aluminum structure with glass walls.  Not nearly as heavy as Ken, thus only the 2 axles. And mine is not a toy hauler. Camp ready, it weighs about 15,000 without water.  On the 60hp tow tune, you'd be surprised how well it gets up a 6% grade.  And yeah, she lets me sleep in it too.  My favorite part is the outdoor kitchen.  Really roughing it to have a microwave, Keurig coffee pot, fridge, sink and gas grill all outside.  I get up early and the old (older) men all congregate at my place for coffee and the smell of bacon frying.  Most say their wives won't let them eat bacon....You meet a lot of neat people around a coffee pot at 6am.

Nice rig she's got there RN. You don't see very many with a door on the left side. I'm sure there's another on the other side too.
Yes, it was one of the reasons we bought that unit.  There is a second bathroom in the back where the girls bunk house is.  That door leads directly to the second bathroom so no need to traipse completely through the camper to get to the bathroom when the kids are dirty or the guests need to use the potty.

In 2 weeks we take off for Colorado for 10 days.  Looking forward to some altitude and lower temperatures.

Mine GVs out at 11k and just a 23ft (measures24???) but has that all important separate bedroom and a stand alone shower, not over the toilet!!

I would love to add an outdoor kitchen.

A little more progress this weekend, along with more frustrations.
Started putting the genny back together. Onan no longer makes standard rings, so I had to replace the pistons and have it honed .010" over. My machinist ground the valves at the same time.
Here's some boring pics....not of the actual cylinder boring process....well you know what I meant:


Slapped on a new starter:


Replaced the engine mounts and modified the carrier plate so that when draining the oil, it doesn't collect under the engine (like these older ones are known for:



New fuel hose:

After mounting the engine, I decided to run it before manhandling it into the trailer, to work out any bugs or whatever. That's when my project went sour. Long story short, the oil pump disintegrated on startup. I later learned that Ken (me) left out a shim/gasket from between the 2 halves of the pump. I promptly fired him, and then moved forward by stealing a pump from my brother's genset, installing it, and then rehiring Ken to lift the genny into the trailer compartment.
Before that, I took out the shielding that the previous owner tried to destroy, straightened it, and added some sound insulation:


...here's the "new" oil pump:

I assume there was no rapid release of awning spring tension. Those things can bite. I got the scars to prove it.

I had to run it out the "awning" side because of the bedroom slideout on the other side.
Purchased one of these gen-turi exhaust stacks to force the exhaust skyward:

It attaches to the exhaust pipe with a mini tractor pin, and uses rubber bungees that hook to the side of the trailer, then the upper 2 sections just stack on loosely. Pull the pin and undo the bungees, and put it back in the supplied bag, and your ready to travel:




The gen-turi has a venturi at the bottom that draws in cool air, keeping the plastic stack from melting.

After spending a week trying to get the generator to stay running longer than 30 minutes (in 110* temps), I think I finally fixed it with a new fuel pump. After that, I decided to take the time and hook it up to the inside control panel that came with the trailer....the gen is from the 80s or so...the trailer an '05, so yeah, the wires/connectors didn't hook together without some research. I ended up making this adapter harness, using a 2006 chevy p/u injector harness plug.
This is the trailer connector:

Yesterday I added some 12v accessory sockets, since this trailer had not even one. I put one near the entertainment cabinet for the new 12v China dvd/stereo system:


...then opened the box for the brand new 12 volt 32" tv....which turned out not to be 12v...urrrr. I mounted a tv articulating thingy and bolted on the tv anyway:

Yesterday was an eye opener for me.
The trailer is nearing completion and all the girls in my life have been promised a camping trip before school starts up again, so.....
I made a run up to the hills to check out my old hunting camps and check tree heights, as well as overpasses and such along the way. I had absolutely no idea how many people actually go to the mountains in the summer time, as of late. Typically I don't spend time in the hills til October or later.
I stayed away from the well known high country lakes, but that didn't matter. There were huge camps, in every camp that I have ever stayed in, as far as 20 miles from the highway...people on top of people, people camped near water holes....rangers, rzrs, bikes, up and down my trails.....you name it, it was like a cancer that had taken hold and was just draining the life from the forest. I'm speechless and a little depressed right now.

Now that I'm back to reality, it's time to go back to work. I installed these hard start capacitors to help keep the genset from dragging down when firing up both a/c units. Truth be told, both of the units already had these installed, albeit smaller and probably subpar versions. I wish I would've taken some pics, but the sweat was a rollin' by the time I bailed back off the roof. Here's what they look like;

Went North again this weekend and found some nice spots, so it's time to finish this little project. We have a trip planned for next week.
The trailer was missing the master queen bed. I probably would've replaced it anyways, so I was shoppin' around, trying to decide whether to spend some serious coin, or cheap out. I have a very "sensative" back, so the bed quality does matter. Then it hit me.....a couple years ago my wife replaced my Nautilis air matress with a sleep number setup. Stubborn as always, I couldn't bring myself to throw it away, and it ended up in storage.

Beginning with the base to see if it would fit in an "RV queen" setup:


The air matress part:


...and it fit....barely:

Looks good Ken. My base lifts up on struts and has a shallow storage area.  Perfect for a remy 870, an AR and some spare mags, ammo and other kit.

Go with best quality you can afford- standard RV mattresses aren't much more than a little padding over cheap springs wrapped in low quality fabric playing the part of cloth.  I was fortunate to get the one my father had custom made to fit an RV by Serta that looks similar to that one Ken, without the air bladder- I sleep as good on it as the one in the house.  Like RN stated, with tilt-up storage underneath, it houses two bar stools, extra bedding, boots, coffee maker, bucket, space heater with plenty of room for some thunder sticks!

Heading back to So. Missouri to sleep on it one last trip before "Back to School- My Freshman Year" starts, as Don so gleefully pointed out!  Y all laugh at those back to school commercials, I shed a tear! :'(

Well it's time to DOT the Master DOT.  I just arrived at the KOA in Abilene. We decided that a one shot trip back to houston was not viable for the kids. I'm sitting here waiting on the 5er to cool in the comfort of the truck. At 7pm it's still 102. So AC in the dually and a beer is just like being in CO.......

And Ken. I highly recommend this if you don't have it.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

That's a TST 507 hardwired with external antenna in the rear window.
