Well after much deliberation I was not sure what I wanted to tow so I bought a custom 17 ft open Alum Car hauler and now I can tow my 04 Maxima or the 95 Trans Am or the ski doos or the quads for off road.
Works well for me and the RV parks are only too happy to find parking for it.
George

I want to tow my car and my motorcycle. My choices seem to be a big trailer or a dolly that has a motorcycle slot too.

Am I missing another alternative?

There is no dolly that will tow a car and a motorcycle.

a large trailer to fit your toys, unless your state allows you to tow triple.

I was wondering if a cycle-tow (www.cycle-tow.com) is considered a trailer (when counting triples)? RV, Jeep, Cycle-tow with Harley.......

Thanks Bill. The hard part is deciding what I am going to pull them with.

I know it is going to be a preowned Class A. Just not sure if it will require a DP or not.

Im concerned about the weight of the car/bike behind a gasser without the advantage of air brakes and suspension.....

Just make sure you understand the GVWR and the net carring capacity of the coach.

We've towed a Geo Tracker, Suzuki XL7, Chevy S10 Pickup, Chevy Colorado Pickup and now haul a Smart Fortwo on a light weight all aluminum trailer. Love the Smart Fortwo, trailer and car weigh 2300 lbs.

Have a 250cc scooter also. Am looking at a combination hitch extension to carry the scooter on a hitch mount rail and tow the aluminum trailer behind that. Anyone know of those types of extension?
