    I wouldn't think so: I've got two RXTs (about 1K lbs each.) on a double trailer. I've pulled that trailer in excess of 50 miles w/just one of the two skis and never noticed a handling problem.

    PS: Welcome to the 'hulk.

    No worries, I've run a single on a double for the past year with no problems. The tire on the heavier side will wear a little faster but that's to be expected.

    The only thing I would do is put the heavier one on the drivers side.

    You should be fine.
    I run with a RXP and RXT on my double and the only issue is the tire wear is not even on both sides.

    I think I'd put the heavier ski on the passenger side. When in a emergency one tends to swerve to the right and coming off the interstate at high speeds the trailer will lean to the left. Just my $.02.

    The only problem with the passenger side is if the wheel falls off the edge it will be heavier and more difficult to get back on the road. I am sure there are lots of opinions on which side. Just my two cents.

    You are fine. I pulled a single single on a double trailer for a long time without any issues.
