I have a rec doubles license from the state of MI, we can tow doubles up to 65ft, total length, but the front trailer has to be 5th wheel attached

double towing

Read all the posts here, very interesting! With our old 5th trailer at only 27 ft. we towed our 17 ft lund pro sport behind our trailer a lot! Total length approx 70 ft. In Manitoba max double tow is 75ft. It handled and followed very well, no swaying, fishtailing etc. I could see the boat trailer wheels in the rear view mirror. My GCVW was about 9500 lbs. so I was within my weight ratings! My old triple E trailer had a square tube frame, very solid and I installed the hitch myself, a class 3 hitch. The boat & trailer were under 2000 lbs. so I was not to concerned about stressing anything and the boat trailer has surge brakes.

Also I limited my max speed to 55 mph with this combination. Oh and another thing, in Manitoba you can only double tow behind a fifth wheel not a ball hitch trailer! If done properly and proper weight distribution it is a very doable thing!

Now I have a question, does anybody have a factory installed class 2 or 3 hitch on the back of their fifth wheel trailer (any forest river). I ordered one with the trailer we bought thinking it might be a class 2 or 3 and received it with a class 1. A class 1 is only good enough for a few bikes, generator, etc. Any other thoughts?
Of all the things I've lost in my life the thing I miss the most is my mind!

Lionheart-the WDH is genius. It almost makes the two trailers act as one, doesn't it?
How did you handle brakes? I would think an electric brake on the third trailer would be great insurance just in case you had to "pull it all back in line"if it started swaying.

I have to run brakes on the rear trailer to be legal. In most states if the trailer has a capacity over 3500 lbs they are required. I am using the prodigy rf wireless brake controller. I originally tried using my prodigy controller that I have for the trailer but the load balance wasn't close enough to work in a predictable way. That left me with two choices. first run new wire from the cab to the bumper then wire from the 5th wheel to its bumper. That would have been a real pain. I came across the rf unit and thought it would be a much simpler solution. It works well and it also allows me to put it in the wife's land rover without adding a controller that would rarely get used.

The trailer was a run of the mill flat bed trailer. I cut most of the center support beams out and rebuilt the frame to support the load. The entire deck raises up and down no tilt or ramps it moves vertical up to 7'. I have a few different heights that I can lock it into place once raised. I have worked out a custom cable hoist system that pulls from all 4 corners at one time with one hoist. It uses a 12,000 lbs hoist to get the job done. The goal when I built it was to be able to load the rzr and 3 to 4 bikes in 20 min or less with as little hassle as possible and remain within the legal limits for length.

Question: Would the golf cart be on a trailer? Or were you thinking towing it behind on it's own tires? I presume trailer, right? If not, I wouldn't dream of towing a Golf cart on it's own tires. They are not made to go that fast. I would think the safer option would be to get a toy hauler or have someone else in your party tow the golf cart or go seasonal like we are and have your golf cart everyday. Good Luck and let us know what you find out.

Here's a link to state by state towing laws:
State Towing Laws for RVs.

I'd still double check with the state directly though, as laws can change or there could be a typo.

The whole rig looks like a disaster just waiting to happen. Wouldn't follow it on a road regardless of the braking system/s used. Too many things could happen.
