Cool Towing car and motorcycle.

We have a 2006 Lexington. We have been towing either a 2006 Saturn Vue (flat tow) OR a cargo trailer with one of our motorcycles in it. We are at a point where we would like to have both a car and motorcycle with us. We were thinking of a duo haul dolly - the car dolly tows and the motorcycle sits on a platform crossways on the trailer part in front of the car. Anyone with any experience with this system? We don't see it out on the roads, just advertised. We are aware of the pluses and minuses of the system, but don't know of any other solution. Any suggestions? Any experiences?

We have a 2012 283ts, and tow a Subaru XV,
I think you would be asking too much of your rig to pull a dolly, car, and motorcycle. Depending on size/weight of bike, seems like your looking at around 5500 lbs or so. Borderline as far as what that year was rated to pull (I think it was 5000 lbs). Aux. brake system would be a definate must have.
