The Montana HC 370 BR has a man cave. The BR stands for Bonus Room. It has a separate room with a sofa, tv, and cabinets. That was the reason for going from a 35' 5er to 43'. The separate washer/dryer took up some closet space so the tiny tag along would make room for the clothes she will never wear.

Pulling 2 single axel trailers with that takes a lot of guts . Doubt he could control any of it in an emergency.

Was that at the Oak Creek Campground? My wife's uncle owns part of that, and the Verona Winery near by. You should check out the winery, really neat place and they make some delicious wines.

Ignorance is bliss, I guess.

I agree. We do it all the time with tractors. But put two single axle behind a pick up and go over 40 MPH you are looking for trouble.

That is a Burro Scamp trailer. It looks like the 13 ft model. Weighs about 1300 lbs loaded with a 125 to 135 lb tongue weight. Burro has been making these things since the late '70s. There's a plant near Corsicana TX. Should be easily towed by a Toyota Venza (that's one of the TVs they are designed for). I don't think that the utility trailer on the back of the Scamp is such a great idea but they may have some tents, lawn chairs and a popup pavilion inside so it probably doesn't weigh very much.

Different strokes for different folks!

I've owned a similar trailer to the Scamp and that is scary at any level.

The Scamp is made in Minnesota and is a spin off of the Boler American. The one made in Rice Tx, near Corsicana is Casita. They are a spin off of Scamp.

It not the weight I was referring too. It is the sway that will be created by wind, bumps, groves in the road. Two single axle trailers unsafe when pulled by anything at more than 30 mph. Just my 2-cents.

I have been in England for two weeks and let me tell you the weight police would have a field day over here. It's quite impressive to see some of these vehicles being used to pull some fairly large tt's. Using ecoboxes to pull a 24 ft tt is quite interesting to see haha.

Correct. And Burro is a completely different animal. No connection. They were made in Iowa...but no more. Unlike the Casita and Scamp, the Burros were rivetless.

He seems to be legal per Wisconsin Statute 348.08. Para (i) seems to apply to bumper pulls and Para (j) seems to apply to 5vers:

(i) A 3-vehicle combination consisting of a towing vehicle and, in order by weight, with the lighter of the towed vehicles as the 3rd vehicle in the 3-vehicle combination unless not structurally possible, a recreational vehicle or camping trailer as the 2nd vehicle, and a recreational vehicle, camping trailer, or trailer carrying any vehicle for recreational use or carrying no load as the 3rd vehicle may, without a permit, be operated on a highway if the overall length of the combination of vehicles does not exceed 65 feet and, if the total weight, including any load, of all towed vehicles exceeds 3,000 pounds, one of the towed vehicles is equipped with brakes. No 3-vehicle combination may operate under this paragraph if highway or weather conditions include heavy snow, freezing rain, icy roads, high winds, limited visibility, or upon a highway that is closed or partially closed by the department due to highway conditions.

(j) A 3-vehicle combination not exceeding 70 feet in overall length may, without a permit, be operated on a highway if the towing vehicle serving as the power unit is equipped with a 5th wheel and kingpin connection by which the 2nd vehicle in the 3-vehicle combination is drawn, the 2nd vehicle in the 3-vehicle combination is a recreational vehicle or camping trailer, including any combination camping-horse trailer, the 3rd vehicle in the 3-vehicle combination is a recreational vehicle or camping trailer or a trailer carrying any vehicle for recreational use, carrying equestrian equipment and equestrian supplies for recreational purposes, or carrying no load, and, if the total weight, including any load, of all towed vehicles exceeds 3,000 pounds, one of the towed vehicles is equipped with brakes. No 3-vehicle combination may operate under this paragraph if highway or weather conditions include heavy snow, freezing rain, icy roads, high winds, limited visibility, or upon a highway that is closed or partially closed by the department due to highway conditions.

I for sure wasn't talking about legal. I was talking safe!! I've pull any trailer combinations you can think. But I won't pull two single axles At least not far and for sure not at speed.
