We see freightliners towing similar horse trailers going on I-10 because of lots of horse action in Az but the rv towing not really or as it used to be. Driving on I-90 yesterday and same look but smaller horse trailer with a 3500 GMC passed us. maybe a $100K model.
all trucks are awesome now.

We participate at least one national level horse show per year and usually two, and generally at one world level show. The overwhelming majority of tow vehicles are 3500 dualies, even at these higher level shows.

There will always be a few class eight trucks, and a handful of medium duty. The other several hundred is almost all one ton dually.

Obviously a one ton dually is also a good daily use vehicle running solo, where a MDT, a little less so desirable.

The F-liner is nice, and I'd like to have one, but it's really just not needed for what we do.

A horse trailer advertisement disguised as a downhill towing comparison. JMHO.

So, what is the best way to lower EGTs?

There is basically three ways that I know of to lower the EGT. Less fuel, more air (more boost) or by aftercooling. I suppose a 4th way is to do what Chevy has done and add a hood scoop to draw cooler air into the air intake.
