Well that's one way to utilize your full GCWR capacity. Gotta Git'er done.....somehow!



* seriously though, this driver is being a bit over-confident with his towing capabilities. Hope he has good insurance.

Not to mention illegal.
Pretty sure in Iowa you cannot "double" bumper pull.

Your a little behind the times Turbs. Seen some of these before. Depending where you live it's legal but need brakes on the first towed trailer. Later RJD

Totally legal in Ontario, Canada; as long as the pickup has "black" plates (registered as a truck, not as a pleasure vehicle).

The pop-up looks like a Coleman (the moulded plastic end caps are pretty distinctive) - and if so, it does likely have brakes - I haven't seen on of theirs that didn't have brakes, anyways...

Now, bigger question is, how long will the pop-up's bumper stay in place?

Please help! I am wondering how to add a WD hitch to my pop-up bumper so I can pull my 28 foot GoFast. Should I weld it on or just use regular nuts and bolts? The GoFast weighs 6500lbs dry but I usually carry 75 gallons of fuel, 2-3 cases of beer, 20lbs of ice and 150lbs of Coast Guard gear. I have the 12 inch tires. Should I upgrade to load range B 14 inchers? How bad will this hurt my mileage? I have already upgraded my tow vehicle. I have replaced my bulletproof Yugo with a Fiat 500. I looked at the Smart car but I didn't like the gear options. Thanks!

I would maybe move the motor up just a bit... One big bump the bottom end is coming off. Otherwise looks great from here. Did this install the explosive charge to jettison the anchor as a emergency stop method??

If you got that good of a look at the umbilical cord connector, then you're right- no brakes.

If you didn't see it up close, lots of heavier pop-ups have brakes. You can't make that assumption.

I was alongside it going down the hiway.
Definitely a 4 way flat.

If the first trailer was a 5th, then it would be legal here in Alberta. But I'm wondering..... How healthy will that prop on the boat be by the time the destination is reached?
