Make sure you don't change the tow characteristics on TT doesn't change tongue weight will change on TT by putting the other trailer on back. Other is sway on that small trailer that you may not be able to see have some one follow to make sure boat trailer is stable at fastest you tow. In New York this isn't allowed I made a rack for my truck and put boat on top or take 2 vehicles and have the wife tow the boat.

I haven't ever felt that the trailer was going to toss me around with the truck I have. That would be my only concern in your case with a jeep but it may not be a concern of yours. Just wanted to make that point.

Good luck...
He won't even notice the little 700 lb boat back there. He might have 50 lbs of tongue weight if that on the boat.

BTW Mine is the second picture with the Black Dodge with the 5er and bass boat.

I noticed your setup in the pics. Didn't know you were a member here. Will be heading your way again in June. I was really inclined to double tow with the golf cart, but ended up selling it. I've heard that adding the hitch to the trailer will void the frame warranty and that you can really stress the frame on the "lightweight" trailers at the point where deflection points oppose....man is this tempting....and saddening after selling my golf cart.

Depending on what I have in the boat (fuel and live wells) it weighs between 4500 an 5000#.

Where are you going here in June?

Here is a neat graphic on towing doubles. The number is the maximum length. No number means not allowed. An arrow means "allowed and no apparent limits."

Thanks! BTW, your map is wrong. Georgia allows it and so does Alabama. I called them before I went.

Michigan is wrong too. Length was 65 feet since law went into effect. Post earlier says this year it went to 75 feet. Have to check that out.
