Beautiful rig and congrats on the retirement. That is definitely a good way to start it.

Impressive indeed. You are living some people's dream. Maybe just different toys. Thanks for sharing.

Just a utility trailer for now. We've only had the motorhome since October. Trying to decide on a dedicated car hauler, a stacker, or getting a 4-down towable vehicle.

Nice Super C. You have the perfect setup for no matter what you choose to tow.

That said, if you have the need for a stacker your rig will definitely have the capacity to tow it but if you don't need all that space flat-towing is the easiest form of bringing a toad along. Especially if you hop, skip and jump around between destinations much.

When we are heading to a destination for any amount of time and think we may want to ride the bike, we tow the enclosed trailer, otherwise we merely flat tow the Jeep which is much more convenient.

Mike.

Thank you zmotorsports.


With a family of six, our toad options are narrowed considerably. We'd like to do what you do, having the option to either use a trailer or go four-down. Unfortunately, we have three 6+ passenger vehicles that will not tow 4-down and we don't like the replacement options. That is what brings the stacker into the game.

evolutn. Can you post a pic of how the side door on your trailer opens? Seems like the opening would make loading the car a lot easier.

Unfortunately I don't have an available picture right now with the off-curb open. It basically flips up on pistons to allow you to open the car driver door and easily get out (or in) the car and trailer.

Goodyears on the trailer; and, no problems since.

I second that! I finally bit the bullet and installed 4 G Rated Goodyear G-614 Trailer Tires on my 12,000 lb cargo trailer. Had too many sidewall problems with E-Rated LT Tires.

Another one here, switched over to 14-ply 16" trailer tires year before last on our 26' Haulmark Edge and now I can tow with peace of mind.
