Fully loaded to go to Disneyworld!

Loaded with golf cart, kids bikes inside camper, 2 kids, wife and 2 dogs.... I had the full load weighed at a Cat Scale on the way down. Glad I own a duelly. The truck can tow 28k pounds and has a payload capacity over 5400 pounds so I was well within a level of safety. Pulled nice and smooth the whole way

I have a similar set-up although my TT isn't as long as yours. I need to weigh with the golf cart in the bed but my previous weights without were well within range so I'm sure I'm OK.

QQ... any reason for strapping the golf cart roof down? Did you have issues or is it simply preventative? I've only towed mine once but didn't any problems...

Very nice set-up!!

It was my first time towing it with the trailer. I felt the extra strap would help prevent the cart roof from shaking all about and possibly coming loose.....so just preventative but that's the engineer in me

I put my own together. The camera is from Amazon for under 20 bucks. I ran my own camera wire from the back to the front in the underbelly. I have a rear camera on my truck that I unplug and plug in the RCA plug and power plug to get the image up on my stereo in the dash, also from Amazon.
Being hardwired it's crystal clear and no interference. Also the hardwire I ran was from a security camera kit and also includes an additional RCA plug for sound but I don't use it.
