Depends on what your state DMV says. Google your state and dbl/triple towing. I'm in Oregon and we can't tow a trailer behind a trailer. Some states require a 5th wheel to tow another trailer. It just depends. There's also length limits as well.
Probably your only alternative at this point.
But, my guess is your probably maxed right now with just the TT as far as what weight the truck can carry. Whats your max tow rating?
The 2nd trailer at 5-700lbs plus the 1300lbs for golf cart could put you at your tow limit as well.
Your problem is the standard problem with 1/2 ton truck owners. 1/2 tons run out of carrying capacity long before they run out of towing capacity.
It's really tough to tow much more than 6000lbs with a 1/2 ton truck and not be maxed out on payload. Especially if you add in a couple kids and their gear.
Lots of people buy a truck without the idea that they will be towing. Then when they start looking at TT's they get caught up in the bigger would be nicer thinking. All the while not knowing what their truck can carry and just knowing the tow rating. After they buy the big TT they then realize they don't have enough truck. It's not a bad thing, it's just the order of events that lots of families go thru. Unless it's their 2nd or 3rd TT that they're buying then a situation like yours is all too common.

JMHO but I don't think the idea is really feasible. Just rent a GC where you go.
