Double towing is not legal here in Washington State. This is not considered a trailer. The wheels swivel and it connects to the ends of the Samurai frame rails pivoting up and down only. Its classified as a "Load Carrying Vehicle Extension". 62' OAL. Washington maximum legal towing length is 75'.

Truthfully, i think you're gonna run out of engine power both up and down grades with the larger and heavier pull before you will have a problem with the chassis.

You might wanna look into buying a diesel to handle the job.

We were starting to get off topic with "does anyone ride Harley's" and replies. It's been made into it's own thread located at the link below.

Does anyone ride Harley's anymore?

I'm going to have to agree with Dr4film. 7400 lbs. is a lot of weight for a 36 ft. gasser. Quite a bit more than the 4600 lb. Sturgis trip. Your also going to want enough brakes to slow it down. Going downhill may be more excitement than you are accustomed to.

The main reason we sold our previous gasser for the pusher was so we can tow pretty much whatever we want. jmho...

Cool thread. WOW!!! There are some fantastic looking rigs here.

Here is our setup.
2003 Dynasty towing our 26' Haulmark Edge Race trailer. Parked in front of the house ready to depart. 72' OAL.


Little Sahara Recreation area in Utah. We haul our mid-engine sandrail powered by a turbo-charged and NOS injected Mazda 13b engine along with a couple of custom built hillshooter drag quads.


Parked @ Sand Hills Resort in St. Anthony, Idaho sand dunes.


With just the sandrail loaded.


When the sand toys are not in the trailer we haul a 2004 HD Ultra Classic and our 2011 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon for our off-road adventures.

Also, to Glenn, the OP, I think this is the thread with the other large rigs in it that you were referring to in an earlier post. It was a thread entitled "Towing Heavy with a Diesel Pusher".
Towing heavy with a diesel pusher?

Mike.

Thanks. We really have been enjoying it.

I really like your Super C. I contemplated one a few years ago when we were considering a stacker trailer but ended up staying DP and ordering our 26' Haulmark. Damn budget thing ya know.
