Has anyone ever pulled 2 trailers nose to tail with one truck? I've been planning on this for about 6 months. I will be getting a trailer built with the axles closer to the rear with a receiver built right into the rear frame of the trailer.
SO WHAT DO YOU THINK? Big rigs pull 3 at a time.

Ive seen people here in Minnesota pull 5th wheel campers with a boat behind that. I know for certain that is the only legal double trailer allowed by a 10,000# gvw rig. These guys are pulling some big trailers, and the total legal lenth is 80 feet, I think. And they do 70mph, and no whip.

I dont know if this helps at all.......but there ya go.

I was planing to build a single trailer. The place I store my trailer has a narrow entrance, so that would not work for me. I plan on dropping the second trailer and then pull in disconnect and then the other trailer. I know it's a pain but the space is only $30.00 bucks a month. Most places around here are $125.00 a month.

double trailers are not a very good idea. my dad runs a concrete plant and drives everything there(enddumps and mixers) and has for years and he would not even try it with his experience behind my totoer home. even two small trailers behind my truck would be to hard to control the back one if you had to hit the brakes hard to avoid an accident or were forced to swerve. just asking for trouble. i would consider getting a longer trailer and differnet storage spot or look for a older cheap rollback to put one car one and tow the other. have you thought about a stacker tralier. i know big rigs tow 3 at a time but not very safely. and those guys usually have a ton of experience and also there trucks wiegh a lot more than a pick up.
my toter wieghs 24000 fully loaded and i would not do it.

That Idea of a tilt truck bed and pull one trailer sound like the ticket. THANKS ZERORACING
