Yep,
Seen that a couple of times before. It's been on either this forum or another recently and developed quite an argument as to the safety of that operation. As usual, many mocked it WITHOUT knowing anything about it, the driver, the capacities, how well it was setup, NOTHING! While there are some high chance drivers/setups out there, I suspect that this fella did his homework and, is ready to show/explain his precautions to any LEO that might want to question his operation.

Boko... why you need a momocycle if you have a gogo cart?

I'm with KUSTOM, the motorcycle has to be on the front.
I'd like to see how he gets the boat on the ground.

Looks like the boat trailer is on some kind of ramp in the back of the truck. I bet he has extensions to get to the ground and uses a winch to get the trailer off the truck and on the ground. Fire up is right, this guy probably knows what he is doing. We used to tow a motorcycle trailer behind our travel trailer with a pick up truck. I asked 3 different transportation authorities about it and was told by all 3 that I was legal and never had any problems. But many times when I pulled into a campground complete strangers would come up to me and tell me "you know that's not legal". When I would tell them I checked with the DOT, state, and county patrol departments, they would come back with " my friend told me that's not legal, you're going to get in trouble." I never got in trouble.

I'm going with the other thoughts - it's on the front And asking why means you're not a rider

I have a friend that puts a large Boston Whaler on a trailer on the top of a 1 ton pickup and pulls an Airstream. His setup works well for him and he's been running it that way for many years. Sorry, no pictures.

I think it looks well thought through and well executed as far as the truck goes..

Can see where he has it strapped down on the rear. Would be curious to see how he gets the hitch across the top of the truck. Cannot see any sign of a center-line ramp but the picture is somewhat obscured by the rain and the reflection off of the MH windshield.

I expect the only thing may be the truck may be exceeding the GCVW but without actual weights it is tough to tell.

I wonder about the cart on the back of the MH. A cart typically weighs about 900 lbs. So the weight of the cart and the lift will likely overload the rear axle.

We saw a similar setup driving to Florida a couple of weeks ago. RV, towed, boat, bicycles etc.

From my research as long as the total lenght doesn't exceed 65' you usually good to go on highways. I read the first time you pull off the hi way you need to disconnect the third vehicle. Might not apply here in after thought as if I'm clear on the setup the gogo car is on a n frame mounted platform designed for it. The fram is then extended to the hitch hopefully and then the tow bar for the truck is connected to the receiver there hopefully they didn't do like the old cab overs did and use an extension bar to the back of the platform with cable tie ins hooked to the frame for side to side stability. The boat and trailer are all on the truck so it doesn't count unless it extend past the tailgate. I'm thinking of building a ramp on my one ton that will place the utv over the cab so I can pull the fithwheel if needed or to transport the utv without the twenty foot trailer if it doesn't fit on my old Tex trailer that needs going over after sitting for the past decade.
