Also may be a bit heavy for a car hitch since a lot of the weight is in front of the axle of the trailer. I never saw a twin axle until I found this one and I like the 7000lb capacity, twice the capacity with only a couple more feet of trailer. This was the only way I could find to tow two bikes and the Jeep without having to worry about losing something. We can unhook the Jeep and tow the bikes with it much like you want to do. It squashes the rear but the V8 pulls it no problem.
What kind of car is your toad? Will it be able to handle close to 1k lb. tongue weight or would you load the RZR with the back wheels in the dolly cradle?
I was able to buy the trailer, all the hitch parts and welding by a professional fabricator for under 4 grand! Have been told by many I got the trailer for less than it cost for materials. Everyone who has seen it is impressed with the setup, even had a few folks taking pics as we drove down the road.
Anyway, let me know what you come up with and feel free to give me a shout if you have any questions.
That trailer dolly is very cool and unique. I'm just a little confused though, what is the reason for not just getting a trailer long enough to get the bikes and jeep on? You could get a utility/landscape trailer with side load ramp, or a car trailer with side ramps. It seems that would be a much better load balance (equalize the heavy tongue weight you currently have) and make the tongue weight MUCH more managable if you tow the trailer with anything else (like your Jeep). Also would have been a lot cheaper. Would likely be easier to back up. So with all this in mind there's got to be a really good reason to do it like you did so I'm anxiously awaiting your reply Either way I give it a 9 for unique and cool!

Thank you for the compliment?

There were several factors that led me to choose this trailer over a car trailer. I need to tow lots of different toys depending on the type of trip we are taking. Two full dress bikes, a Jeep, golf cart, sand rail & bicycles.

A utility/landscape trailer was out of the question since it isn't strong enough to carry the Jeep by itself.

Cost can't be an issue since I have had several unsolicited offers well over what I paid, so I must have got a good deal. It was brand new when purchased.

A car trailer would need to be in the 25ft. range to fit 2 bikes and the Jeep or buggy. However when we just take 1 motorbike and bicycles for the kids, a 25ft trailer is a bit of overkill. My current trailer is 17ft. My RV is 37 ft. We have been to many National/State campgrounds and barely fit with what we have, something longer would just be a pia.

As for having to upgrade the trailer hitch. That would have had to be done anyway since the original was only rated for 5k lbs. I have towed the bikes or golf cart with a F150 and a Durango and both had no problems, although both have factory towing packages.

Backing up does suck, but all dollies have this issue. When not used as a dolly it backs up just fine. It tows beautifully, no sway and has brakes on all 4's. When your driving something that weighs close to 27,000lbs, a couple thousand lbs. hanging off the back is barely noticable.

Hopefully I have stated a few of my reasons sufficiently enough to end your confusion. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to ask.

Hello All,

This is how I transport my RZR-S in my Ram. And the Ram is my toad.
