i don't doubt that it can be done

But there is a reason why its illegal in most states. Its a bad idea.

Guys do it all the time here in Idaho. Mostly behind fivers, but behind trailers once in a while. And a lot of back country gravel and dirt roads of which we have a bunch of out here. Most are only pulling little fishing boats or atv trailers. Never heard of anyone breaking anything.

Looks good . i don't see a problem doing it the way you are . most are scared to just haul their tt's . most western states allow this the further east you go the more restrictive the states gets . I see this all the time and see no issue other then backing up would be a challenge. as far as the TT frame handling this again i see no issues . your not talking a lot of weight 2 atv maybe 1000 to 1200 lbs plus trailer and TW only a few hundred lbs .

Never backed mine up. Unhitched the baby trailer first. I was around 60 feet long, so gas stations were interesting. I do like the toy hauler a LOT more now though.

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.

If you did not want opinions why did you post.....??? You asked for opinions.....

1. It is not legal in many states period......... it may be in yours.
2. It will stress the frame and may not be approved by the manufacturer. If you are in an accident will your frame guy stand behind you??? The RV manufacturer probably will not......... The other guys attorney will love it.
3. I meet people all the time the think that they know their limitations until something happens and many are no longer with us................

Not wanting to be harsh but lives can be at stake..............

You're not being harsh.....

I have the same problem with this as I do with 1/2 Pickups towing 5th Wheels! Something about it just makes me CRAZY!

Well, one of the benefits of living in a free country. We can make our own decisions good or bad.

Which is all fine and dandy until others' bad decisions screw my life up!
