So what do you tow biggest to smallest

I take my Trike, Goldwing 1500. I built a trailer just for it so as to make it easy to get off and on. Camera keeps an eye on it, (readjusted it). It's a short trailer, so need to see it when I'm backing up. My neighbor carries a Goldwing 1800 on a lift mounted on the back. But that adds so much rear weight, puts him over his rear wheel limit.

I also tow a boat depending on where I'm going.

I'm curious what else is towed out there and how big

I tow a utility trailer that has been converted to a sports equipment trailer. I haul 2 NC Kyaks 15' & 2 bicyles on the trailer. Total length from tongue to rudder is 21"

We tow a Toyota Tundra pickup with our Suzuki Boulevard in the bed and the tandem kayak on the roof. I have also towed a 20ft fiberglass boat and our 16ft drift boat.

I tow a full size Hummer H2 (Kayaks on the roof rack most of the time) and stash my HD Soft Tail in the garage in the back. But I swear I'm leaning towards leaving the TOAD at home for short trips and just renting at the destination. Gas consumption sucks with all that weight.

Since I posted this I traded (sigh) the H2 for a 2010 Mini Cooper S model. Yeah, I know, dramatic change. But the mpg's can't be beat, and pulling <2900 lbs of dry weight vs >6600 of Hummer made a small difference you might say. had to wait 3 weeks for the new Road Master plates on the Mini, but I guess not many people tow it so that made sense. One major hurdle I haven't overcome yet is what to do with the electric life and SEGWAY, that was in the trailer hitch for the Hummer. Mini has an after market class 1 hitch, but the tounge weight is restricted to 200lbs. Heck, I may just install the lift on the front of the MH and call it a day.

Anyway, that's my example of "from biggest to smallest" for the day.

Y'all take care.

When I see those lifts with full dress bikes on them I always wonder about the extra weight on the back...I guess I was wondering correctly.
