Impressive rigs. A quick search on www.paceamerican.com didn't show me any, but they say they make them with 20' interior length. Gotta run right now, but later I'll do a search to find the correct stacker trailer for hauling a Jeep and Tacoma.
Stacker would be elegant but not practical for this application. Length would be problematic but weight is an issue. Our stacker weighs 11535 with a SUV and two motorcycles, plus a few odds and ends.

Stacker is 20' with a 16' lift. InTech will built pretty much whatever you want. We went with them for price and quality of build. Comparable HaulMark was was less but curb weight was 12,000 lb. InTech, all aluminum, is 6350 lb.

Inside height also an issue with two SUV. Max inside clearance is 11' 4. You can get stackers with more height inside but price can really be an issue.

I believe that. if the state in which your vehicle is registered allows double towing, other states aren't allowed to deny you doing it. I've seen quite a few double tows around here in WA (we're in a very popular tourist area) even though the state doesn't permit residents to do it. They've almost all been a toad with a boat behind it, though I did see one that had a toad pulling a sailplane trailer.

Well. I'm not much good at Googling, so I can't fine exactly what I'm looking for = an 18' or 20' interior length stacker, preferably aluminum to keep the weight down. Following is a 24' aluminum stacker that would do the job nicely, except it's only 10' interior height, so you'd probably have to remove the roll cage and maybe lower the windshield on the Jeep to stack a Wrangler over a Tacoma. No specs on that website, so I assume the 24' length is from coupler to behind the rear bumper, leaving about a 20' interior length.

I have been watching this thread with interest.........have a question, why do you want two auto's with you? behind your Coach? Just wondering......Thanks
As posted, you have to watch your towing capability and weights........

You are subject to the vehicle restrictions of weight, length, etc of the state you are in. Reciprocity is only good for licensing (drivers, vehicle) requirements.

If you are on the interstates you fall under the federal rules and are not subject to state rules as long as you are on the interstate or within a specified distance of the interstate. You are allowed off of the interstate in order to get fuel, food, accomodations, etc. Interstate rules are consistent throughout the interstate system.

My experience with stackers is the length is the body length. That is for Haulmark, InTech, Factory Transport, Millenium and Feather Lite.

Then there are options for the length of the hitch.
