We have a 20' stacker and carry two Gold Wings and an SUV plus some other "stuff". Trailer is a spread tri axle. Tongue weight with the triple axle is not an issue as the weight is 800 lbs. InTech built it to our specs with a 16' deck.

We towed a 24' enclosed trailer behind our 39' DP a few times. Golf cart in front, car in back. Turned out to be more hassle then it was worth when we could just flat tow the car and live without the golf cart. Became a hassle too in campgrounds, what to do with the trailer if it wasn't a long enough pull thru or if it was a back in site. We were 77' total never had any issues. I think the better set up that accomplishes the same thing is to flat tow a pick up truck with the golf cart in the bed. Seen that a lot lately.

I do the truck with golf cart in the back also and when I was in new Mexico seen a lot of side by side done that way with a ramp up over cab and across the bed

I call those "wiggle wagons", because when I pass them on the highway, that second trailer is usually wiggling around quite a bit.

Isn't taking a Jeep and a Rzr rather redundant? They serve pretty much the same function? Uh-oh, I may be poking the Jeep cartel here

Not really. The RZR will run some of the trails you run with your Quads, but a properly setup Jeep will run Axle Alley at Florence Junction or Collateral Damage @ Table Mesa, or Black Viper @ Havasu. Your Quad or RZR can run past the entrance of the really good trails, but don't venture into them unless you have a built Jeep.

Jeep is a grocery catcher, shopping mall, street legal cruiser for us. Where as our XP1000 is purely an offroad stomper as with our KTM XC. I will admit I have way to many toys but Mom and Dad did not buy them for me!

Looks like all the room has been taken up with the two door jeep, I'm thinking still either an extension on the back of the trailer for the extra length, or an extra two feet of trailer.

Granted you can do some remarkable things with an open flat bed trailer that you can't with an enclosed.

There is plenty of room on that 24ft trlr in the post above for a 4dr. The rear tires could be just at the rear of the trlr and possibly the RZR could go forward some. I hauled 2 mc and a 4dr Wrangler on a 20ft with room to spare. Also if the RZR is 8'6" or less you can load it crossways.

The laws in your home state dictate your overall length for INTRASTATE travel. Travel outside your home state and the INTERSTATE laws apply. Please note the differences , INTRA - INTER. Most states use the interstate laws which is 65' length for single vehicle towing 1 trailer and 75' for vehicle towing 2 trailers. There is also the drivers license requirements for length and weight that come into play also..
Your best option would be a tilt ramp on the nose for cart/rzr that tilts up after loading so you can drive jeep under to keep trailer length as short as possible.
It is not legal to flat tow the jeep with a trailer behind ( hitch requirements ).
There are a multitude of legalitys that come into play here and some people don't care. Remember, just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

I have been told so many times that I am not legal at 75' and will get stopped. Maybe they are right, but this is what I have learned. For some unknown reason, the LEO's tend to overlook length violations with RV's. One answer I received from a State Patrolman was that if you are driving in a prudent manner, within the speed limit and not posing a hazard on the road, he will not bother stopping an RV'er for a possible overlength violation. I know that's no guarantee that I won't get stopped, but until I do, I will continue to keep my MH & trailer in top condition, observe the traffic laws and be considerate of others on the road. Three years, 35,000 miles and counting.

You're correct, following the other rules of good driving will most likely not draw the ire of police.

Problem would be if you do get involved in an accident, or even someone purposely causes an accident with you, they've got the over-length issue to increase your liability. I hope you have an umbrella insurance policy!
