Thanks so much to everyone that has contributed here. I have had one heck of an education on this subject.

Looks like the trailer toad is something we will need to look into since we plan to tow a substantial trailer most of the time. The stackers have me thinking too. Not so much for the lift, but the height.

If you don't need the lift or the full 13'6" height of a stacker trailer, most manufactures will add about any amount of additional height to their standard trailers. I had extra height added to my 26' Haulmark Edge race trailer and it wasn't much in additional cost compared to the rest of the trailer.

Just a thought.

Mike.

Contact Jok at Trailer Toad and tell him what you plan to do.

I don't have one of his products, nor have I ever met him... But I believe in his product and customer service from the testimonials on another site.

Very cool...Collins built a nice boat! You definitely have to respect these things and always wear your lifeline.

Will be towing this year

After reading many of the replies it sounds like many of you are towing similar size rigs as I would be driving. It would make life easier to be able to transport cars in the enclosed hauler. This year we have a Fleetwood Revolution we will be towing with. Last year we had a Thor Mandalay. Similar coaches in size and power.

It is hard to get a good shot because of the length, you have to get so far away to get everything in.

Bob, That helmet doesn't go with that bike, unless you are racing vintage.

Just found a picture of the newer motorhome. Same trailer; an open Featherlite with custom box added. The only "stacker" content is a second set of wheels & autocross tires inside the box.
