I just searched and it looks like pontoons around 20ft long weigh 1600-2200 lbs

Rackreno your setup is 1000 x's better, safer etc! Hopefully someday I can do something similar

I saw a guy once pulling doubles. He had a Class A, pulling a boat, that pulled a pop up camper. Seemed to me silly at the time and I am not sure how legal he would be.

If you enlarge the picture and look, he's got it tied down very nicely with frame supports along both sides of the truck bed. It's no different than someone hauling a large slide in camper, like a Lance 11'. Most of the weight is down low since most of what is under the cover is just aluminum rail, making it look bulky.

I'll bet it's a pretty stable set up. It appears to be a 3/4 or 1 ton Diesel that would weigh close to 6800#. The boat seems to be 20' long with a 50 hp motor. Probably about 1800#. The loading unit is all hydraulic and must be 1200# and is very well attached to the truck frame. With 80% of the weight being below 7' and a side wind able to blow through and under it, it has to be stable. It's actually a pretty nice compact rig that is within all length and weight limits. With the coach weighing over 50K, towing 10,000#'s with probably 600+hp, the driver of the coach probably doesn't feel it's there

edit: I would change the cover to a custom made one with snaps to prevent any movement. I've tried the type pictured on one of our 24' pontoons and the wind can find a way to tear it apart.
