Bale O'hay and three buckets of oats a day.
Apple and carrots are optional.

Looks like you might need to pull double trailers so an upgraded hitch may be needed.

I have a 20 foot Aluma-Lite, can I pull it with my ponies, or should I just trade them in on three mules? Wouldn't Clydesdale's be too much TV for my camper? Thanks.

IMHO one can never have "to much" horse power.
Just be aware, the more HP the more expensive it will be to operate.

At least you may get a beer option with the Clydesdales??? But parking may be an issue over them mules. Those big guys are hard to fit into standard spaces.
