Please help! I am wondering how to add a WD hitch to my pop-up bumper so I can pull my 28 foot GoFast. Should I weld it on or just use regular nuts and bolts? The GoFast weighs 6500lbs dry but I usually carry 75 gallons of fuel, 2-3 cases of beer, 20lbs of ice and 150lbs of Coast Guard gear. I have the 12 inch tires. Should I upgrade to load range B 14 inchers? How bad will this hurt my mileage? I have already upgraded my tow vehicle. I have replaced my bulletproof Yugo with a Fiat 500. I looked at the Smart car but I didn't like the gear options. Thanks!

I wouldn't pull that anymore than I would an A Frame with... 300 lbs of motorcycle hanging off the back.

I would maybe move the motor up just a bit... One big bump the bottom end is coming off. Otherwise looks great from here. Did this install the explosive charge to jettison the anchor as a emergency stop method??

If you got that good of a look at the umbilical cord connector, then you're right- no brakes.

If you didn't see it up close, lots of heavier pop-ups have brakes. You can't make that assumption.

I was alongside it going down the hiway.
Definitely a 4 way flat.

If the first trailer was a 5th, then it would be legal here in Alberta. But I'm wondering..... How healthy will that prop on the boat be by the time the destination is reached?
