Towing a car and motorcycle

I have a 42' 400hp diesel pusher, plenty of power to pull. I want to pull a Harley and tow vehicle. The tow vehicle might be a jeep wrangler or Ford F150 4x4. I'm looking at this tandem tow dolly that can load both, but wondering if there are other options out there that anyone pulling both might be doing. Looking at this Motorcycle/Car Tow Dollies For Sale : Tandem Tow

Thanks.

Some people, if they are pulling a full size truck and the bed has the room, will load their motorcycle into the bed of the truck for travel. I also know of several people with larger diesel pushers that tow 28 foot enclosed trailers with their smaller vehicles and motorcycle(s).

My dad has one of the tandem tow dollies. He hauls his golf cart and a front wheel drive Honda crv. He really likes it and has had no problems. Only downside to it is stowing it once at the campsite. However it's no different than any other tow dolly.

Just happened to think about this. Make sure what you are wanting to tow on a dolly can be towed. I have heard some of the 4x4 towable four down vehicles cannot be towed with only two down. Just something you may want check on before you lay the cash down.

Thanks all, great ideas and feedback. I will check with Ford and Jeep on the proper way to tow those (4 down or otherwise) before i get too far in. There are so many options out there and not all good ones so really do appreciate the feedback.
