Towing an enclosed trailer?

I'm pondering a enclosed race trailer to tow behind my 2000 Monaco pusher, it has the 8.3 cummins.. would like one long enough to hold my daughters pulling truck and a gator.. before go out and buy one.. are there any issues you can think of that I should know about? thanks!

The maximum combined weight and length come to mind.

RV towing capacity, hitch capacity, total length of RV + trailer (many states have 65' limit) are a few things to consider.

I pulled a 24' enclosed trailer with my 8.3 Cummins in a '99 40' American Eagle with no issues. As long as your hitch is rated for the weight and the tongue weight, I don't know what other issues you would be concerned about?
