Want to use cargo carrier and pull my boat. What do I need to be safe?

Anybody doing this? Not sure how to go about it and be safe. My concern is the boat being to far extended so as not to hit the carrier in turns and stability....Any recommendations would be welcomed...

We don't have enough info to comment. Fill in some details for us; RV type, boat length, you know, stuff like that.

I have a class 3 hitch on my gas v10 HR Vacationer and want to use a cargo carrier and pull my 20' ski boat from the same hitch. Just wondering if I can do it or if anyone else is doing this....

What do you need the cargo carrier for? Can you store the items you were going to put in the cargo carrier inside the boat while underway?

Boats don't typically have tons of hitch weight... but clearance might be an issue as most cargo carriers I know of stick out 2.5-3ft from the rear.

I personally have a dual hitch extender (Dual Hitch Extender) on my MH with a cargo rack in the raised hitch opening. My only use for it is to raise the cargo rack and extend it a little from the rear of the coach. The bottom hitch opening (the straight though one) has dragged before. I couldn't see coupling a trailer under a cargo rack.

Thanks SCA, I could probably put it in the boat, but was looking to put my BBQ and cooler on the cargo carrier since my storage bay is to small to put them in and I already have a bunch of stuff in the boat. I was looking at this cargo carrier to see if it was doable...
