I have a frontera LWB, but am looking to change to a shogun as I dont trust mine to pull 2 horses. Great with one, but 2 would be too heavy.

Re: towing weights frontera 4 x 4

I don't know about a Frontera but I have a Shogun SWB as well but would be nervous of towing more than one horse anyway. But then again I have never towed at all so am not the best to answer the question. [:I] But I do know that everyone has said a Shogun is one fo the best, they are heavy and very stable. My friend has a new shape Landrover and says that is very good, if it helps.

what age are the shoguns that you drive, and what engine size?
