Great pictures, thanks. Something like this what I had in mind. RV Towing Accessories | Tow Dollies, Tandem Tow Trailers, Tow Bars.
The car cradle slides to balance the load, giving you an acceptable tongue weight.

Don't have anything yet, traveling with a 2500 Ram diesel pulling a 32 fifth wheel and towing the second trailer. Would have to trade everything, just don't know if I want to incurr the debt.

Ya DOT says 70' max

I was looking at the exact same ones, but just couldn't bring myself to spend 5k on a limited use trailer. With mine I can use it to tow just about anything, not just motorcyles and a car, so it works for me.

Have you considered trading in your 5'er for a toy hauler, or selling it and getting a used toyhauler for close to what you sell it for? That may be more cost effective and will give you a new toy to play with. Once at your CG, you can pull out the ATV and with ramps put it in the bed of the truck, just an idea.

Those RZR's sure look like a lot of fun. Ever since the kids spotted some in action in Utah they have been begging me to buy one.

Well, SD DOT says max length pulling tandem is 75', Wy is 85'! Max tandem lengths vary from state to state and in a couple it's not legal at all.

I think you passed us when we were in SD toward the end of June this year. If you remember seeing a really really old (see avatar) C Class along highway 90 near Murdo (1880 Town) SD.

I'm curious about your braking system and how the controller is setup.

Have you had any panic stops and, if so, did the boat stay straight?

They're a blast. Gets us old folks out into nature. Here's a shot of the better half exploring a remote lake in eastern Oregon.

No Sir, I do not believe that was me, I was not near Murdo in June.

I have the stock integrated brake controller in this truck, the prior Dodge had some sort of Prodigy, I think?

All my axles have brakes, the 3 axles on the 5'er are controlled by the brake controller and the boat trailer has surge brakes. Considering, I can stop pretty good and have never had it get out of control or even sway when having to mash the brakes because someone "didn't see me!?!?" and pulled out in front of me...

Very interesting way to tow your toad and have extra room for other things!

To cross from Tsawwassen to Duke Point onto Vancouver Island on a BC Ferry would run him $380.45 each way plus another $14.95 per person over age 12 with him.

That is if he managed to get past the RCMP for being over length and for an illegal "B" Train operation.

Looks good. Won't work here in Florida or the SE states. Some of the people down here are dangerous in a go cart.
