Barrow Alaska to horn Cape trip


If one day you had to plan a journey from the northest Alaska city of Barrow to the Horn cap ,the southest point of souht america ,which toy hauler fifth wheel would you buy because of its solidity, of its reliability, of the quality of the used materials, the solidity of its chassis, its luxury and the renomée of its brand if you wanted to resell it after this journey?
I forgot to specify ,a used one 4 / 5 years not has used one has new one.

I spent many hours to consult the web sites of many manufacturers ,to studyplenty of floor plan and technical features but I am unable to decide, and I have not the skills, which marks to select to choose then the model which I would want. There are too many brands and models.
After reflections it is a fifth wheels toy hauler I would like.

I dont know if it existe but I would like to have the possibility to transport l 2 horses as well as a small car or iverse goods .

I need some advices.

I personally wouldn't try such a trip in ANY kind of RV, let alone a toy hauler with horses and auto in the back! Perhaps a Toyota Land Cruiser could make it, but you're talking about thousands of miles of crude tracks and dirt roads, not paved highways. The structure of an RV isn't built to handle that kind of punishment and resale value at the end of such a trek?

Maybe a Truck Conversion with a garage, built on a very solid chassis, would come closest. Something that is overbuilt for it's duty w/o all the granite and tile, and may be worth something afterwards..
