I bought my PM last January and have used it twice for lengthy trips that required me to haul toys.
This carriage is what I haul, snugly tied down, in the back of my van while pulling a smallish horse trailer with my Morgan horse. inside I use a winch to load/unload the carriage with aluminum ramps. I love that it can be kept secure inside the van and out of the weather.
Once I get to the venue, I unload the carriage and sleep in the back of the van.
Lots of people have asked me why I don't let the horse ride in the van and pull a trailer with carriage on it. Problem with that idea is that my horse would lick my ears while I am driving. Plus he poops wherever he pleases. Not such a great idea.
