Safety ??????? 5er

I work in a NP so I see lots of RVs sometimes I talk to the people about there setup. I have seen people double tow say a 5er and a small storage trailer.

is that safe??? I know its not ok in all states.

Today I say a guy in a ton p/u with a 5er and a motor cycle where the bike rack would be. It was a small import bike larger than moped.

Is that safe?????

It is indeed safe if done properly.

X2 on that.

some of the dirt biks and Duelsport bikes have quite a bit of aluminum and magnesium and are almost as light as a moped even.

Personally I'm far more concerned about the TTs and 5ers that blow down the Interstates at 75 MPH! I think the drivers have a basic lack of understanding of the affects of "mass" and "energy"...

Too many seem to think that the R in RV must stand for RACE.

You got that one right...Couple years back was coming back from Myrtle Beach and the traffic letting out of the NASCAR Bristol race was wizzing by at 75 / 80 mph. All types of RV's...There must have been another NASCAR race called "first RVer to the Ohio state line wins".
