I would check

1)hitch capacity
2)use a weight distribution hitch if the chassis of the RV allows it (some do not)
3)redistribute the weigh to reduce tongue weight.

I like the paint.

Thanks......
It was the parking lots' angle that made it look this bad. The rear does move 1 1/2 inches when I load up the Tandem Tow. I'd like to put the bike closer to the hitch, which will put 800# on the hitch and I'll need to change hitches. The existing hitch is only a class 3 and the rig is within 800# of max on rear axle weight when loaded like this. I'd like to get it flatter but don't (didn't) know where to start. I like this coach and trailer setup but might have to go to a flat trailer with distribution hitch to haul my toys around.

It is a Tandem tow HDXL. Mine has a 10x8 deck with a tow dolly. I can haul 2 bikes and vehicle. 5k axel with brakes, 8k tow rating. Check out tandemtow.net.

Just looking at the trailer it appears you will have significant tongue weight with two bikes and a car on it. Have you weighed the tongue with full load?

It's a interesting setup, but I'd think I'd rather have a regular enclosed trailer that would hold the car and bikes out of the weather. I plan on using my 22' trailer behind my new Discovery to haul my wife's Ford Edge. Here it is behind our 36' Phaeton that we traded. Haven't had the Edge in it yet, it usually hauls to racing go karts.
