They said the bumper pull to a bumper pull trailer configuration was completely fine but needs to be under 65'.

so at the same time I want to strangle you turbo I want to shake your hand...
Lol
HAVE A GREAT DAY MY FRIEND!

Somehow, I think a trailer (even an 800 pound Jetski) will put more stress on that bumper than the tire. Good luck and I hope your insurance covers the loss and liability IF that bumper tears away with no warning.
Forest Gump had it right.

I just got a new neighbor at our lake camp ground last night. When I was talking to him about his 40'Cardinal 5er, he stated that sometimes he pulls a pontoon behind it. And all this behind a early 2000's f350. I didnt say anything, just kind of "wowed" it off.

Herk has it right on the Forest Gumps momma thing.

Ps. I dont want to be around any rver pulling doubles, I don't care what the excuse.
