A Few Factors to Consider When Choosing Between a Bumper Pull and Gooseneck Trailer

  • gooseneck horse trailerSleeping Quarters – Gooseneck horse trailers can easily include a large mattress in the gooseneck portion of the trailer.  This can be a great feature to have if you plan to spend long days at the show or plan to camp out with your horses.  Bumper pull horse trailers can have spacious dressing rooms, but the sleeping area is more limited.
  • Tow Vehicle – Do you own or are you willing to purchase a pick-up truck?  Gooseneck trailers often require a truck with a higher towing capacity and a pick-up bed for the hitch mount.  Bumper pull trailers can be better if you have a smaller tow vehicle or fewer horses. 
  • Number of Horses – If you are only planning on towing one or two horses, then a bumper pull horse trailer may be perfect for you to hitch up and go.  If more horses make you merrier, then a gooseneck may be a better option.
  • SafeTack Configuration – Our patented SafeTack design with forward or rear facing options is available on BOTH gooseneck and bumper pull models.  So no worries there!
