CAn an RXP handle it?
Does anyone have any experience with towing tubes or wakeboards and recommend anything to do so? I know this should be done with an rxt but its kinda late for me...
experience advice is much appreciated.

Check your state Regs. I know in NJ you can only pull a towable with a three seater. Rider, Spoter, and Person on Towable.

I have pulled two barefoot waterskiers behind the ole' rxp.....
Two tubes with several teenagers behind/.///////
Everything has worked out just fine and actually the RXP is a pretty good platform for this........

I Am Not Sure But I Think The Law Here In Fl Is That Their Must Be Room On The Ski For The Ski Driver And The People Being Towed. Meaning That An Rxp Woulb Be Good For One Driver And One Skier, And An Rxt Would Be Good For A Driver And Two Riders.
I Dont Think That Is Says Any Specific Size On Mirriors, So The Ones On It Should Work.

If its anything like California Law which requires a 3 seater for the driver, flag person, and the person being towed in case they need to be rescued and brought to shore.

Ok this is what I found in florida. I guess I will need to buy a wide angle mirror or break the law.
in-case anybody wants to check out florida laws heres the site. http:\\www.myfwc.com
§ 327.37. Water skis, parasails, and
(1)(a) A person may not operate a vessel on
any waters of this state towing a person on
water skis, or an aquaplane, or similar device
unless there is in such vessel a person, in addition
to the operator, in a position to observe
the progress of the person being towed, or the
vessel is equipped with a wide-angle rear view
mirror mounted in such manner as to permit
the operator of the vessel to observe the progress
of the person being towed. This subsection
does not apply to class A motorboats
operated by the person being towed and designed
to be incapable of carrying the operator
in the motorboat.

Here in IL, you gotta have a spotter and empty seat on board in case the person gets hurt...I tried using the mirror excuse a few times with conservation but it never worked.

Where I ride (Ontario, Canada), there must be room on the PWC for everybody being towed, PLUS a spotter on-board and the driver. That means a minimum 3 person PWC for towing ONE person, and you'll need a 4 person PWC to tow two people.
Basically, everybody needs to have a seat available for the ride home. If the towable sinks or otherwise fails, it does make sense that nobody gets left behind.
