Shamrock 21SS with front cargo hauler

I have had 2 Shamrocks in the past and am looking to purchase either the Shamrock 21SS or Rockwood sister hybrid with the front Storage deck. I am curious what the weight rating is on the front deck and how it affects tongue weight. Looking to tow 4 seater golf cart and possibly RZR UTV(separate of course)

the Roo is the twin brand to the Shamrock.
way more Roo dealers, nationwide, than Shamrock dealers.
get a quote for the Roo 21SSL from RVW or RVDirect and use those quotes to shop around.

Welcome Great Laker,
Hopefully someone with a front deck model will chime in to give you their real life experiences. I know there are a few with the 21SSL on the forum so you may want to search their posts. I remember reading a few of the same questions over the years and I believe the deck will hold 1400-1500lbs. Depending on the weight of the cart or ATV and how balanced the load is with cargo in the trailer behind the axles, the TW can easily be 1,000lbs plus.

21ssl front deck capacity is 1400 lbs. 2 motorcycles or 4x4atvs would work. golf cart may fit, but most UTV would not. Its only 8x8.

I have one, and I have had two ATVs on it a few times. It works very well, and always gets attention. I cannot stop for fuel without someone wanting to look it over and find out what it is.

I tow with a diesel Excursion with a 1200 pound Reese strait-line and even with the deck near capacity, it tows very well. feel free to ask any specific questions.

I looked at your profile and your signature isn't showing in your post. The truck in your profile may not have the payload rating to handle the potential tongue weight.
