I'd bet a right hand turn would be impossible. I Triple tow with no problems but one straight trailer I believe will try to cut corners short.

For a variety of reasons I suggest you stay out of the NE with a rig like that.

FWIW can you arrange to have it picked up at the DOT lot where they break down doubles? It might be a whole lot easier once you get off the interstate.

I'm starting to think that it would be a lot easier to just have the boat hauled professionally I was only trying to go on a 3 hour trip to sandusky OH for a race. Didn't want to have to take two vehicles. Thanks for all of your feedback.
