I hate being first and like to learn from others experiences.

Unfortunately, I've had my beer held for me too many times.

I am going to get the 426 I think, but I am second guessing this stall option. My biggest concern is one of them becoming unsettled back there and causing damage or worse, our horse getting hurt.

I think we are better off buying a second truck and towing the Raptor and our standard horse trailer to the horse events/horse campouts.

Yeah the Raptor 426 is a lot of trailer for any SRW truck anyway, you are on the right track IMO new Raptor and a DRW truck.

My .02.....

I had a Fuzion before and looked at this option. I decided to buy a small LQ horse trailer and use it for the horse events. I then decided to sell both and buy a large LQ horse trailer and use it for camping and horse shows.

There is no comparison between the stability of a LQ horse trailer and toy hauler. The horse trailer is rock solid with or without horses. The horses will move and I cannot imagine how the toy hauler would feel with the horses moving around back there. Also the ramp scares me with the amount of pressure a horse has on 4 points. What about hay and all the accessories....saddles, bridles, etc?

Lastly my trailer has a ramp so I can take golf cart or whatever when we are camping. The gooseneck bed (not able to stand up) has been the biggest adjustment, but otherwise we love the horse trailer. It is 41' long so it has plenty of room for us and the toys. The only complaint I have is the set back on the axles makes it much harder to turn, but I have gotten used to it.
