    Chassis mount is first choice .Trailers bounce around .Which means dogs bounce around. though I have never pulled a dog trailer with air ride suspension(Jones makes one).

    Well if you only need 6 holes then you should get 8. A dual axel trailer will work just fine.

    That is what the extra holes could be used for!

    No to trailers.

    Our dogs will always ride in the same vehicle as we do.

    Not an expert, but I believe when you go adding closets in front and back as well if you go to say like 6 rather than 8 holes, it needs to be bumped up. The manufacturers of the box should be able to let you know which you need for the type of box you are wanting.

    I'm with Angie, I've had both and I like my 16hole chassis mount over a dog trailer. I pull a box/enclosed trailer for 4 wheeler, wingers and other gear in the am when running marks. I like having the gear locked up and out of the weather. In the pm when just doing yard drills/blinds etc, I can leave the trailer at the kennel and work out of the dog truck. Chassis is way to go regards....
