Thanks for all the great ideas! I can see that there will be quite a few tricks here I can use! I'm going to try to stay within limits where I won't have to stay overnight too much and can head home, but I know that isn't always possible.

To the person who had the mega cab...I had no idea the bed thing in the back was possible...that is awesome!

This might be better under another post, but because I want to try to not spend a whole bunch of money eating out, any tips on non-perishible foods to bring? I'm not cheap, but I figure if I save money eating out I can enter more races and rodeos! LOL. 

I never had much money...when I rodeoed..
I never got to eat in a restaurant unless I placed..lol...then I had steak.
As long as my horse ate first, and my fees were paid, I didn't require much food.
Granola/ trail mix, jerky, fruit, but mainly I bought block ice for my cooler so I could have my dairy..lol..
A block of ice usually lasted about 2-3 days..
I was livin' the good life!!.. :)
I'm actually wanting to sell my LQ and downsize, but I know I can't re live the past no matter how wonderful it was..

You make it sound so fun!!! Even though I'm sure it was tough. . .

Foam or trailer mattrest in bed of truck or trailer. Small window ac can fit in manger and plugged in. Propane grill. Bake food at home put in baggies then in cooler if need be. Mashed potatoes, instant gravy., fried chicken Can be heated in a micro wave at a store or get a compact one to take with, some where there is a plug available. Showers are available at truck stops. Now you can watch TV ,netflix, hulu , you tube on your smart phone.

I have an Elite three horse GN. Four ft short wall. I paneled it myself and got CAUGHTYAWL’s dad to help me put in a ceiling. I have an AC/heater in the roof. Small refrigerator, microwave, ports potty with a comfy mattress in the neck. Often I stay in an RV park. Works for me.


If you rodeo and are on the road for weeks at a time, a LQ might be a necessity but if you are gone a couple of nights a month, weigh the costs. I would think a couple of nights in a motel would certainly be less than payments on a LQ. We have a lot of big barrel races in this area that last all weekend (E TX) and have people come from 300 to 700 miles away and I see many of them heading for motels.

Another question....what size of water tank/storage for in the trailer? Mainly drinking water for horse (anyone else out there who have horses that are picky about their water?!), I can take bottled water for myself.  

I'm definitely talking a couple of nights a month...i work full time so there is no way I could get the rodeo rode for long periods of time...yet! ;

The one I have is 25 gallons, but theres a 18 gallon one to and they have some that you can use as a saddle stand in your tack area or and theres one that you can use in the bed of your truck.

I use it for my horses only when I went to jackpots and a 3 day barrel race, not for human use. I would bring bottle water kept in a ice crest for me and who ever needed water or soda.

I never use the hay rack on top of the trailer except for this thing: https://www.valleyvet.com/ct_detail.html?pgguid=59683dcb-1ed0-47c7-b732-d487536ef290&itemguid=d9da2cc8-bef9-4c12-a045-f1cefd30e585

Best thing I added to the trailer, even more than the ridiculously giant awning. I use it to water horses, wash them off, rinse off boots, splash myself in the face when it's a billion degrees outside. Love it.

I have often thought about how I would pull off hitting the road in my two horse slant with front dressing room and back tack.

A cot angled in the dressing room. 
Portable fan and heater. Not sure what new products are out there.

Use the front stall as hay and feed storage.
Battery or propane powered portable shower, could take out and use in the back stall of the trailer when showers aren't available. 
There is a car plug coffee maker, which I would need..   Also an adapter to plug in a blowdryer and hot tools in the truck. 
Could use a bed cover on the pickup to add more dry storage. 
Cooler for drinks and lunchables :)

After all the ideas, here is what I am thinking:
water tank in tack room with all my tack
bales of hay in bed of the truck, unless I only bring one horse then they can go in front stall
put portable panels in bed of the truck
cooler in the truck with me with human sustenance 
then maybe a sleeping bag or "equipment" to either sleep in the cab or camp out. 

Anymore ideas to add to this? To me this is roughing it! LOL.

A portable potty sure does come in handy..I have one in my tack area that I use to sleep in on weekend trips..

I rodeoed somewhat hard in 2012 with no AC in my trailer and it was doable. I had a half ton pickup and 3 horse stock combo with a dressing/tack room in the front. Mostly hauled 1 horse at a time so I had both the front stall and the bed of the truck for hay. Stored my grain in buckets or rubbermaid tubs in the dressing room, hauled 3-4 5 gallon jugs for water (Culligan jugs from Wal-Mart work well), and about every other time I stopped for gas, I bought a bag of ice and refilled the cooler. I kept sandwich fixings and some refrigerated beef jerky snacks plus bags of pretzels and boxes of cheez its in the truck. 

It wasn't ideal but it worked for 2-3 days at a time. I think I stayed 3 nights in a row over the 4th of July but thankfully the second day, I went to the local swimming pool and showered so I was actually halfway clean. I did learn to haul a bath towel with me since on that trip I had to stop at Walmart and buy one quickly. At one point, my dad rigged up a small window unit on a stand and sent me down the road with a generator to run it. 

My husband and I have spent a couple nights in that trailer since then, but we typically plan ahead and take his living quarters trailer on longer trips when we plan to spend the night. It's only a weekend package but that air conditioner is sure nice in July!

I used to stay in the walk in tack of my 2 horse trailer. I bought a bag shower from a camping store, put it on the trailer roof during the day and took a warm shower in the late afternoon in the back of the trailer. ( just make sure you back in somewhere against trees or a fence)!
