After attending several horse shows and experiencing the hassle of running all over the place at various times of the night and day to ride and look after the horses we decided that it would be a good idea to purchase a living quarters horse trailer.  On the recommendation of friends we took a look at, and decided on, a trailer from Bloomer.  After a bit (cough) of "investigation" we met John Brunner of Durham Trailer Ranch in Weatherford, Texas and got our trailer ordered.  The interior conversion was done by Duster Camper II and, after working out a few small glitches, we are quite pleased with the end result.  The experience is not unlike building a house from 1200 miles away, so some rough spots are to be expected, and I'll leave it at that.  Here is our truck and trailer along with some photos of the interior.  My tow vehicle is a 2005 Ford F-350 King Ranch with the Tow Boss package.  I've also added the following aftermarket components:

  • Transfer Flow 98 gallon aux fuel tank (136 gal total capacity, 1100+ mile towing range, 1500+ miles empty)
  • Firestone Ride Rite Air springs
  • MagnaFlow exhaust
  • AirRaid Intake
  • Boulder Engineering Diesel Scrubber fuel purifier
  • Pyrometer EGT Gauge
  • Hypertech 3 stage programmer
  • TurboSaver Diesel Timer
