My question, in order to put a hitch on the rear, what part of the frame needs to be reinforced to handle pulling a 12 ft trailer with either snowmobiles on it or motorcycles on it?
When I bought it, the salesman said it just needed to be welded to the frame.
I don't think he has a clue.
Time to trade for a heavier unit.

Here's a heavier unit.
It didn't fair so well either.

Hey Yooroo

I forgot this isn't Australia yet with trailer trains. Leave it to Mexico and it would be.

Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this thing around.

You want to tow a 12 foot trailer behind a 32 foot ultra light frame on uneven ground????? The most notorious thread around here is one of the ones Turbs posted where a guy towed an 8 foot trailer with a single golf cart behind his (he had a heavier frame than you) and his frame buckeled and cracked.

Good luck and even if you "beef" it up this is not a mod this is a complete frame rebuild and it still isn't guaranteed to work. I'd look into a toy hauler for something like this.

Thats the one I remember, I thought the trailer was longer but that look like 5 foot. I remember him bragging about how well it did, then the thread where his frame was jacked came later......

It sounds like I should take the wheels off of the trailer and put it on a goose neck heavy equipment trailer.
I get the message, "don't do it" and get a toy hauler.
Thanks all.

You wouldn't be the first.

Yes that sounds like a plan that I can live with.
I already found a few that were pretty cheap.
