Stacker hauling

Hi. I have a 45 Monaco sig. I want to haul a 26 ft stacker loaded with toys. I will be doubling the weight cap of the hitch. I see it done all the time. Does anyone have any experience with this. Thanks

Welcome to irv2. I don't have experience with this but it sounds wrong.

if you have a 10,000 hitch and you are going to double that with just a 26 foot trailer, sounds like the perfect plan, to fail

I have seen those extra dollies that a person can add that will absorb all the tongue weight and not have that weight on your hitch. I forgot the name of that item, sorry

We have a member who broke the 15,000# hitch on his London Aire.

The weight on the hitch needs to be within limits as the forces can be excessive.

I see people buying drugs all the time; doesn't make it right.
Even if you go welding on the hitch, you're asking for trouble. Doing that heats it up, weakens the molecular structure of the metal, and then can fail very easily.

Total length in most states is only 65'.

Get one of these TrailerToad.com

Increasing static load is only part of the calculations. How much will the dynamic load also increase?

Trailertoad is and was designed for Stackers, call Jok he is a racer, he will hook you up. I own one and use one, these baby's are sweet! Will allow you to go up to 18K lbs without any problems. Think there is a bigger one as well, but I have the 18K lbs. model.

FYI, you can't ask these type of questions here, too many people will jump on you for it. Go to the Racing & Off-Road forums, pretty much everyone has one of these set ups and won't scold you. Most don't get that our toys cost more than our motor homes.

Feel free to pm me. Good luck!

Maybe if someone explains it we won't. Sorry for being ignorant.
If, in fact, you are overloading beyond GWRs and such, then go ask those others guys, cause they always do it I hear.
