We recently bought a 28 ft class C motor home with a 450 V10 Ford engine. Can I safely tow a two horse trailer with one horse and equipment/tack? My empty trailer weight is 2800 lb.

probably, not gonig to win any races and i would use load leveling bars. how much you load the motorhome will probably have more to do with it than anything, also where you live will have a huge impact on how pleasurable/safe the combination is.  Ie you probably be fine in Iowa, Coloardo not so much

I believe there should be towing specs and requirements somewhere in the manual or something, even for a motorhome. If not, maybe contact the manufacturer of the coach?

NOPE! Not unless you get some work done on the hitch on the motorhome! We was going to go with a motorhome until I spent weeks doing research on tow capacity. Motorhome had plenty of power BUT no near enough hitch rating. Most we looked at only had a 500lb max tongue capacity and 2000 to 2500 max tow capacity on the actual hitch!

Well, from my experience I think most truthfull RV dealers will tell you that hitch was put there for 2 reasons. First- tow the subcomact car the delivery driver needed to get back to the factory. Second- hold a bike rack. Putting 5,000# of shifting cargo horse trailer back there has the opportunity to south in very many ways.

Several years back a prominent Texas horse trainer had horses killed in a trailer wreck with a similar set up. The undercarriage of the motorhome was not strong enough to handle the trailer weight.
