    Odd question, two trailers welded together?

    Last year I was at the cottage we rent and saw a guy with iirc an old F250 with a double trailer, and a single trailing behind that. I didn't get a close look but it looked like he welded (maybe u-bolted) on a receiver onto the rear of the double and then had a POS single trailer attached.

    This year we have two modded cars, (I might put a hitch on mine) a seadoo jet boat, 1 FZR, 1 SHO, and 1 VX deluxe come up. So I'm wondering, do you think it would be ok? Maybe put the SHO/FZR on the double and VX on the single. We have a welding specialist that would do the work/brace if needed. Wiring we would have to play around with. We go up 3/4 times a year for a week and its about 3.5 hours or so.

    Triton is the double and shoreland'r is the single.

    Just want to know other peoples thoughts and opinions. I would consider it but we do have the trucks/drivers to do it but it will completely fill up the driveway and backyard probably.

    The first thing to do would be check your local laws to see if its legal. Some places it's not.

    Search for some older threads on here regarding 'towing double' and 'towing triple'.

    Laws vary by state.

    I pull double trailers often. Receiver made to the back of my main trailer along with additional wiring harness so I can plug in the second trailer.

    One thing to remember is the tongue weight of the second trailer resting on the rear of the front one changes the tongue weight on it. You will have to move the skis forward on the front trailer to bring the tongue weight back up.

    I've done this for prob 15 + years. I had a 4 place at one time but didn't like hauling it everywhere when we were just taking 2 skis. The second trailer pulls exactly in the tracks of the front trailer. Pulls great- just get tongue weight correct.

    Backing up can be a challenge with two, not too mention single axle trailers are more difficult than dual axles. Have no idea what it would be like with two PWC trailers.

    Thanks all, I'll keep looking into it. That other thread is very helpful as well.

    K447- sorry, I went back a few pages and didn't find anything.

    Ive never had any issues except its illegal in Illinois around here. You can pull a camper with a boat or ski behind it-but not a boat(ski) pulling another boat(ski) odd. I used my motorhome for years pulling the jeep and double ski trailer behind jeep. Different states -different laws,definitly have to check. Just moved to Missouri about 5 years ago and things are diff than TN. TN only has truck lic plates of one type -here you can get regular plates, then pay more and go up in weight to 21,000 lbs. They judge what you pull by the weight class of your plates, and you cant just take a 1/2 ton with GVR of 12,000lbs and buy a 21,000lb plate-GVR is final word on what you pull. I run the 21,000lb because the bumper height also goes up
