Boat hauling

Is anyone storing and traveling or towing a fish or ski boat using their toy hauling TT?

You don't say which toy hauler you have, but I'm not sure how you would tow it with a toy hauler. Of course, I'm not familiar with the bumpers on TH's.

I did look once at buying a TH that had a big enough garage to haul our bass boat, but didn't find one that would work for us.

I don't have a TH is why....I own a Salem Cruise Lite 261BHXL. I'm always brainstorming ideas on how I could get my camper and boat to my destination with only one TV.

When you said 'Toy hauling TT" I figured you were talking about a Toy Hauler.

I'll probably catch flack of it, but we tow our bass boat with our 5th wheel. Of course the frame is heavier on the 5er than it would be on the tag-a-long. And our bass boat trailer and all only weighs about 1200lbs fully loaded.

You could look into RV bumper brackets, or look into having a frame mounted hitch installed to tow your boat if it isn't too heavy.

Looks like you have a pretty good cargo capacity on that 261 so that should have a pretty good frame under it.

Your trailer has an ultralight frame and will easily be overcame by the boat's weight and movement.
