Are you saying he's trying load the boat AND the Jeep on that trailer? The tongue on the boat looks very high, did the boat get away from him?

I'm thinking the boat has to be loaded that way to get the necessary clearance for the Jeep roof.

At one point we use to double trailer and it looked a lot worse than that! I will have to see if I can find one of those lovely pictures!

Fiberglass boat, roughly 19', w/trailer would be 2-3000lbs. 4 door Jeep Unlimited would be about 4000 curb. Trailer to haul it would probably be in the range of 22-24' (and that one looks like a steel hauler) and at least 2500-3000lbs. so total, we would be looking at a minimum guesstimite of about 9-10k lbs. can coaches pull that back there?

At least that is a lighter load on a trailer designed to do it. An aluminum boat and a tiny tracker is much more tow friendly. Still wouldnt want to tow that though. A little top heavy for my tastes.
