    tow rig and trailer combination? (that isn't a semi or large truck).

    I'm at about 46 feet long.

    Used to be 48 feet long, but I cut 2 feet off the end of the trailer when we re-did the bed.

    I bet some of the guys pulling doubles might beat chevyracing by a little bit /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif bobwilliams is supposed to be moving up to WA state towing a car trailer loaded with his blazer behind an RV or something like that soon...

    It's not that bad.... The axles are far enough forwar they allow for pretty tight turns, just have to watch the tail swing.

Which hasa class three mounted on that to pull the jet skis behind... I should hook all this stuff together and get a pic... LOL.. I might look like a cowboy..

    Not the best pic, but you get the idea. That was before I lifted my truck too. The trailer has a 30 ft. bed. I don't know what the whole thing measures.

    What states is it legal to tow more than one trailer at a time? I don't think it is in Washington State, but I could be wrong. I was told that you can in Idaho.

    It's nice to not have to load and unload that big 'ol camper in and out of my truck. There's still room for atv's and the welder/generator, even with the jeep on. Once you're unloaded at camp you have a nice big deck behind the camper. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    my buddy eric use to pull a 21foot boat behind a 16foot camper on his 2000 ext cab dodge. It was a little longer than the 46foot race car trailer he used to move but it made corners alot easier and backing up funny to watch /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Would you be able to fit a suburban on the trailer behind the camper? Or, would a 36' bed be more appropriate?

    NICE setup by the way!

    KC30,
    If you put bridging under that trailer that would take alot of the flex out and you would tell a world of diffence when you pull it. A friend of mine has a trailer very similar and we bridged it and wow!!! what a difference.

    Hmm, are you talking about basically trussing it underneath? How would that work without giving up to much ground clearance? I've wanted to do a rig like that for the last couple of years, but I have NO place to store a trailer that size. My 16' is trouble enough... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Thanks. How long is a Sub? There's 30 ft. of bed, the camper is about 11' 4", so that leaves 18' 8" with my setup.

    Yeah, I have thought about that, but so far I don't think it's necessary. I had a friend who is a welder/fabricator, build the trailer for me. When he was done, he said we may need to add bridging. When I'm hauling all the toys, I put my Jeep to the rear, and it balances out well and pulls great.
