First 5er - selection

Trying to narrow down our choice of trailer. We want to ultimately double tow { our boat behind the 5er }. Would be grateful if anyone can suggest trailer models between 25-27 feet from pin to bumper . We will be using a 1 ton to tow .
Looking forward to checking out your suggestions.

Welcome to iRV2.

I don't see any info in your profile about location; so.
First thing would be to double check that , the double tow is allowed , in your home state/province, and allowed at your destination and all points in between.

Here in Canada, Alberta allows double tow and B.C. does not. So RV's with the double tow are turned around at the border.

Pick the 5er in the length range you want with the floorplan that fits your needs. If in doubt ask the DW. You will be more likely to change the 5er because the floorplan does not work than the ability to hook a boat behind it.

Im based in Lethbridge Skip426 and currently trying to do as much research as we can on our possibilities , staying within the 65ft , a truck we can all travel in comfortably , a 5er with a good floor plan { thanks Gordon } and a boat we can fish from both comfortably and safely.
Currently looking into an extending tongue for the boat trailer { can save on overall length of boat , trailer ,engine combo while travelling and it just extends to aid normal launching}. This may make suggestions by Cumminsfan a reality.

Thanks all for taking the time to reply
