I have already found a 2 1/2 inch class five receiver. Now I am looking for an 18 inch extension. With my ranger in the bed and my airbags filled up, the whole rig should tow just fine! Hopefully 😁

Just remember for every inch of an extension you will start losing tongue weight capacity

One thing to remember, if it has wheels on the ground it is called a trailer in some states that do not allow doubles.

I ask that question but it is a rigid connection between the trailer and buggy is what they call them do it doesn't pivot in the middle.

I decided to put the ranger in the back of the truck but needed a way to have the tail gate down and still tow.

Towing double means 5th wheel plus another trailer. You can only have one hitch with ball. And not allowed in many states. You better have one mean truck to be able to carry ranger; plus a heavy TW multiplied by that extension. I would investigate OCs idea of making a cutout in the ramp.

I have airbags on the truck and TW is only 950. Should be good.

My TW was 1250# without the scoot. Of course you could load the trailer to get less TW. What does the Ranger weigh... Just curious?
