    I am missing nothing. You on the other hand........no one 'has' to work with a stupid horse, they choose to. If they feel a helmet can offset the additional danger, have at it. I don't believe it...

    I think a horseman on the lead rope, instead of a giggling little girl would have been far more appropriate than a helmet. :cool:

    For the cheaper 'entry level' trailers a shelter can make a big difference. They frequently have poor/little paint prep, no primer, no caulking of seams etc.

    For a good trailer such as your...

    Lens comes off, screws go in. No drilling from outside. You have double walls or going to screw into a support of some sort I'll assume?

    1. Yes 6' is plenty for a horse that size (and larger) to turn around.

    2. If it's that important for him to ride backwards, and you don't feel 6' is enough, teach him to back into the trailer.

    The F250 with the V10 would be my pick of those choices. Being used that little, and only for towing a small trailer the diesel is not necessary and would only be added expense.

    They can legally "under-rate" it at whatever number suits them. Not uncommon to find 6 ton equipment trailers rated at 9990lbs for that very purpose. Same with the large Uhaul trucks with GVWR...

    A steel (or good aluminum) trailer will weigh about 250lbs per foot of floor, LQ trailers are a variable of course. 'Title' is wrong, I would guess around 5500lbs.

    Yes. If one can not get a 2H BP to pull well behind a 1/2 ton or larger, they need to have a little one on one time with an instructor.

    Then perhaps you should do a little more tire 101. In this case the "C" rated tires have a load capacity of ~2000lbs, which is actually ~250lbs more than required to make the axle rating. :)

    Looks good to me.

    The "R" (LT235/75R15) in the tire specs indicate a radial. Radial vs. bias is really only an issue with trailer tires where bias ply is still readily avaliable.
