    How to take 2 trailers?

    I've always been tempted to put a hitch on the back of my 5th wheel, to pull a trailer behind it. But I'm pretty sure it isn't legal here in NY. (not to say I haven't seen people do it, though!)

    But since my kids only wanted the Jetmate that weekend, it was easy.

    It amazes me that out of all the skis to choose from, this is the one they all want to ride....

    This is up on the St Lawrence Seaway/Thousand Islands region, near Clayton NY.

    I've seen RVs pulling cargo trailers with hitches pulling boats and skis here in NV. I don't know if its legal or not.

    I really do like that lil boat! Did ya get the boarding step installed? Thought about trim tabs to help it plane out with heavy loads?

    There have been a few threads on this in the trailers forums. Called triple towing, there are links to a list of each state and what the trailer rules are.

    The fifth wheel seems to be a special case in some states, with triple towing allowed. Other places, it depends on your driver license class.

    I just finished the step this morning! Man was I sweating that first step on it.... Holds my weight just fine, 190lbs. I got some much-appreciated help from Beerdart, thanks again Steve!

    Trim tabs might help, as I mentioned before, if there's an adult in the back the thing won't climb it's own bow wave to switch from displacement to non-displacement mode. And I've got a healthy engine, about 2mph faster than stock right now.

    The real fix is a 750 or SXR800 motor, I'm trying to line up parts for that over the winter.

    You're right, it isn't legal in NY. Obviously that doesn't stop people from doing it in many states. I guess it mostly boils down to how interested police are in enforcing this law.
