Tandem Tow Dolly for Trike Motorcycle and Car

I am thinking about purchasing a Tandem tow dolly to take my trike and car with us when we travel accross the US and to winter in Flordia. The total weight is 5200lbs and we have a Georgia Boy 34.5 with Chevy Workhorse engine the largest you can get. The hitch is rated for 5000lbs is this to much weight to tow? It is a Race RV Product.

Shouldn't be, just take it easy and make sure you leave plenty of room ahead of you.. And check your cooling system. A tranny cooler would prolly be a good idea.

We tow using an enclosed trailer with the Smart car and Goldwing TriCar in in when we go to TX for the winter. I use a Trailer Toad between the MH and trailer which takes all the weight off the MH, just have the push/pull. I have upgraded the hitch to a class V and had the frame extensions reinforced. I also did the same with our 06 F53, never had any problems. The trailer has brakes and I do watch my speed and distance, have made many trips with no problems. The enclosed trailer doubles as a garage for the bike in TX.

Ride safe but keep riding!
