Double towing with HW296

Hi. Has anyone ever towed a small lightweight boat on a trailer behind one of these. I am assuming you could get Uhaul or the like to mount a receiver hitch to the frame. I would only be towing less than 750 lbs. and yes I know it's only legal in some states.

There are numerous threads here about the same question, some with pictures as to what happens.

I suggest you use the search and see for yourself.

I used to tow a boat and trailer behind my hybrid for years. The trailer dry weight was around 3000lb so about 4000lb running down the road. Pulled with a full size truck, half and 3/4 ton. Never had an issue, the boat weighed about 1500lb I would guess with the trailer. You cant back it up so make sure you can pull in wherever you go. There is a website that has the states and dual trailer regs. Like everything else, make sure you have a good setup on your hitch, anti sway etc. and it is not that bad. If you are pulling close to your weight rating with both trailers, bad idea.
