lance trailer on ford f-350

I have 2008 Ford F-350, Dually, Long Bed Truck that is equipped with a Class V receiver hitch. I will be towing a 3-horse, slant load, trailer behind the truck and I DO NOT want to use a hitch extension. Which 2010 Lance Trailer would best meet my needs.

Is the Lance a slide in or a bumper -Pull travel trailer? I would not recommend pulling a horse trailer off the hitch and then a TT behind that or the other way around.

If you are looking at lance slide in campers, and do not want a hitch extension, you will need to keep with the shorter slide in units. In addition to the weigh to of the slide in, you will have to look at the hitch weight of the trailer and the trucks GVWR and rear GAWR.

My experience pulling a trailer and hauling a slide in, if the slide in extends beyond the PU's rear bumper, the trailer jack will hit when turning. With the long bed that would be an 8 1/2' slide in.

How about selling the slant and getting one with living quarters. I have seen some that are very nice and not too long.

If you follow the link in the OP's post, you'll see that the RV he's talking about is a travel trailer, no a slide-in truck camper. I can't believe he's seriously considering pulling a horse trailer with a travel trailer behind that!

???Well, don't know. If he is going to pull a horse trailer, then he means a slide-in unit and is worried about how far past the rear of the truck bed the camper can extend before he would need an extension on the trailer hitch. The link goes to Lance TTs, but I believe he is looking at slide-ins.

Perhaps so, but the title of the OP's post says "Lance trailers." I agree that it would make more sense (and be safer) to pull a horse trailer behind a truck with a slide-in truck camper than try to pull it behind a truck pulling a travel trailer.

Maybe the OP will come back and clarify what he's REALLY talking about (but I doubt it...his first and only post was made on the 5th and it's now the 11th...doesn't appear that he's interested in the answers...perhaps he was only a "hit and run" poster...or someone who gains from advertising Lance travel trailers?)

I have a 2000 year Lance 810 that is 8 ft long and even with the long bed Ford. I have air shocks and it works great to pull the bp horse trailer behind and hooked directly to the truck. Hauling 3 1,000 pound animals is not too much. Lance quit making the 810 but I do not know what year.

2003 Ford F350 4X4 diesel drw cc; 2000 Lance 810 truck camper; hardly notice its back there. 2003 Jayco RKS 33, yes it is back there.
