Heck I'd still get the class A if I had to though, to pull my rig that is..I pull 72 feet, from the front bumper to the tip of prop, with a Cougar 27SAB 5ver in the middle.
And that's not even possible in some states. EVERY state on the eastern seaboard has a law that makes towing recreational double trailers illegal. Doesn't matter 5th wheel or conventional, more than one trailer behind the tow vehicle isn't permitted.


[QUOTE=MNdiesel2[No Tom, i don't think pulling 15000 pounds on a 2 5/16 ball is unsafe, but I'd feel a heck of alot better with a gooseneck or 5ver hookup.[/QUOTE]

This was just an example to explain why this could be perfectly safe. There is MUCH more forces attaching this boat to the truck than any trailer, including a 5th wheel.

I don't know if I'd wanna try it (that much weight) on anything other than a dually. I gotta imagine it raises the truck's center of gravity quite a bit with 3000 pounds that high, I know it's not that high up, but considering how much is above the bedrails of the truck, .I think it might feel a tad tippy on anything other than a dually is all.
I did some research, and this one is a custom build the guy in the video made.

But there is a company that makes a system like this for lighter weight boats: http://www.trailersystems.com/

But...

Called the guy and he said no way would he build one for a 3000lbs boat. His web site is: www.trailersystems.com

MNDiesel2 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Wow...I read his dialog and pic's on that RV site...He actually did build that thing right.....Actually quite impressive after you get to looking at it.....Really well thought out and done

Too bad My boats too big for that setup though....

Really...are you saying there are only a few places a person can legally triple tow? Really I wouldn't mind if a person had to get a special license.....it's not for the young at heart driver, or inexperienced driver....a person really has to pay attention where they get fuel, and not to get themself into a pickle...

On the other hand...I've seen some rediculous, and unsafe towing..like tripling 10-11000 pounds behind a half ton, no beefed up suspension, and P rated tires. I've also seen triples setup behind rotted out travel trailers, again pulled with a half ton.

It's not that most places don't allow double trailers, but there is much of the country that does not. Attached is a map showing the states that permit it and those that do not.

I guess it would have been asking too much to use a trailer... On edit... This was quite awhile ago. Sorry to bring back a necro thread.
