What is in those huge trailers behind MH's

I am talking about those enclosed trailers that are huge. I even see them behind older 2000 ish MH's. And once in awhile you see a trailer painted like the MH. I looked at the normal enclosed car carrier trailer - these trailers are taller and longer. I see non-tag axel MH's towing most of these huge trailers but once in awhile I see the Tags towing trailers just about as large as the MH. Last year a Prevost with huge matching trailer pulled into the RV park not far from me. They were there for 5 days but never came outside. My.guess - these are people going to car shows that have multiple cars...am I right? (Some of the trailers are high enough to stack cars on top of each other).

Anybodies guess. I saw a Prevost similar to the one you saw. It had more toys in it than I'd ever seen. Two jet ski's on a trailer, a grill on wheels about 8' long , two segways , motor bike , all sorts of diving gear inside and of course a car and more. Some venders go from show to show , some are for a MIL :-).

My 30 foot trailer that I tow is my rolling garage. The major item's are my car and motorcycle. However, there is just about everything there that would normally be stored in my garage. If it doesn't have a place in the coach it goes into the trailer.

Ladders, tables, tools, golf clubs, fishing gear, tread mill, blue boy, storage cabinets completely full, pressure washer, air compressor, and a spare coach tire.

Those trailers are called "stackers" and have a lift inside. That way they can transport two vehicles or whatever the toys of choice are.

Do a search on craigslist under RVs for "stacker" and you will see.

Had one pull in beside me the other day (Well not actually "Beside" the owner got out, plugged in a cord, and a controller and DROVE THE TRAILER. he had a car in it, another trailer drive, (The model up from the trailer drive he had installed) and a whole lot of other stuff, Freezer, tools, spares and so on.

Though the trailer was capable of moving under it's own power, Perhaps Top speed was like 2-3 MPH, and range was kind of lmited by said cord.

(Or course the trailer, empty, was over my tow limit but hey.. NEAT)
Home is where I park it!

Hey, I forgot to mention I see some with an A/C unit on top. Are you guys with the huge trailers full-timers? If so, that makes sense, House on wheels and attached garage also on wheels.

This belongs to a fellow who was across the street from us last winter.

He had a full size 1/2 ton 4X4, Mini Cooper, dune buggy, motorcycle, and a decent shop in the trailer.

At a Vintage-Historic race in Alabama I noticed an entrant from my home town in California, when I went to find him he had a beautiful rig, Beaver Patriot w/ matching stacker, his race car on top, Mini Cooper below, small fishing boat and golf cart up front.
