Horse Trailer Truck

The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta

Member2960

I'd like to buy a truck in the next year that can haul a two-horse trailer. Fuel economy is a concern, but I don't plan on this being my everyday vehicle. Would an F-150 be big enough? Are Silverados as good as the equestrian magazines make them sound?


I used to have an F-250 and it was manual with a bench seat and in order to push the clutch all the way down, I couldn't reach the dash controls for the radio. So, an automatic transmission would be preferable I think this time around.

Priorities: Towing / Fuel economy / Reliability & durability

Need minimum of 2 seats

Will consider both new and used cars
Maximum mileage: 60000
Maximum age: 10 years

Maximum price: US $ 20000

I'd stick with the Chev, but the Ford folks may disagree. Our old F150 wasn't up to horse trailer duties. The transmission didn't last once we started hauling the horse trailer with it.
We bought a diesel Silverado and couldn't be happier. Smooth, quiet and powerful.

F-150 with a HORSE trailer...... ohmigawd NO!!

YOu need at least a 3/4 ton. EVen a 1/2 ton is too light - been there done that 25 years ago.
