Anything can be done if you throw enough money at it. But aren't most horses taller then the inside of an Airstream?

Short of spending enough $$$ for a goose neck show horse trailer, the short answer is NO!! Everything from the axles to the frame to the overall structure just ain't nearly strong enough to take the weight of a horse.

I just traded in my 32’ aluminum horse trailer with living quarters for an Airstream. I hauled horses for almost 45 years and my father sold horse trailers. Guess what?
I would never, never, ever put a horse in an Airstream because it simply is not built to handle the weight of a horse, nor for a horse to kick, stomp, pee or poop. When a horse shifts, that’s a lot of sway that’s going to happen, whether you think slant load or straight load. Sorry---but hopefully you’ll find another way to camp with Flicka!

If you have ever heard of a horse going thru a trailer floor while going down the road. The horses legs are being ground off by the pavement. You would not even consider an A$ be used to haul a horse.
Most horse and stock trailers have a very substantial frame and flooring material that is at least 1 1/2" thick.
An A$ has a very light weight frame and flooring material that is 3/4" or less.

As horse owners we would not even consider this as an option.
