Towing a trailer, behind the RV

Does anyone else tow a travel trailer behind their Class C? Have you had problems with maneuvering in and out of gas stations or camp sites? Have you found it hard to locate camp grounds with enough space to fit you? Or some rule that won't allow a TT to be your tow?

I am currently driving a 32' Class C with an 18' TT behind it.

We live in the RV, and the TT is her office space so she can deal with her small business while we're on the road.

My toy hauler was towed with an A class diesel pusher by the previous owner. He had a problem with not enough clearance between the 2. He made the front ladder on the trailer removable and had a professional shop extend the tongue by 10", It cost him, but it was his solution to be able to have his space in the A class and the teen kids separate accommodations in the trailer and a way to get a golf cart to camp.

Oh. Never thought about a business out of it. Makes sense now.

I'm sure that you're actually shorter in overall length than many coaches with their toads... though some campgrounds or rv parks may 'limit' the number of 'living units' within the site... I doubt you'd have a problem, though, if you just mention it to the management - they don't want folks 'doubling up', or throwing out tents.

We may get a small travel trailer to pull behind our coach, for our boys to have their own space. I imagine that for some parks it might create some questions, but few parks mention it.

Yeah, I rarely get anything other than a "wow, that's an interesting idea" from parks, but once in a while they don't go that way. Just got off the phone with one park that wanted 2x their rate, wouldn't give any AAA or Good Sam discounts to me, and wanted 100% non refundable up front - because they couldn't trust someone who had 2 RVs. hahaha... they're the grand exception of course

Since you don't use the bed or bathroom, have you considered selling the camper and replacing it with a box trailer? A little wiring, and you can have roof A/C and lights. Add a window or 2, a little insulation and turn it into her office and other storage. Campgrounds should never question a box / motorcycle trailer.

These are quite often done already, by people who can't afford campers and make their own. Search local Craigslist and you might turn a profit selling the travel trailer and getting a box trailer already with the right additions for the office.

We looked into converting a cargo trailer at first actually, but we decided that when we added in all of the things we would potentially want in the future, it was better to buy a TT. This gives us the option going forward, for her to take the TT on it's own when she gets a truck, and go do longer workshops and conventions, when me and the RV are located somewhere else for work.
