I wouldnt do it either. I remember the thread that Turbs is speaking of, dont think it worked out for that poster either. Two thousand pounds is a lot of weight behind your trailer......

I think double-tow threads need to be banned...

A ban is unnecessary. It's way too popular of a question to shun people. After all that's what forums are for! It is pretty much the same responses everytime though.
Maybe the forum can have a read-only post with ALL the links to the same double tow questions. After reading those posts the person inquiring should be educated enough to where they can make their own judgment call so we don't have too.

Done it. Pulled a drift boat behind my TT. Kept it under the max length and it pulled just fine. Legal in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and others but not legal in Oregon and Washington. So I bought a toy hauler. I can fit the drift boat and trailer in the toy hauler now so I can stop tent camping on drift boat trips to those states.

Get a bigger TV and put it in the bed or get a toy hauler. What you are trying to is illegal in most places and your trailer's frame simply isn't designed to tow anything.

Just don't.

First and foremost you guys don't know your laws by state instead of assuming that it's against the law.
Secondly, I took this TV to an experienced frame guy who said yes it would work. He wasn't up for the money I trust this man hundred percent.
Thirdly if you know your limitations and you take your time it all works just fine! Thank you for your input.

Frame guy said "hey no problem" but what did coachman say ?

Don't come crying when the frame is bent ahead of the hitch.
Its happened before on frf . Smh
