Using “dollies” on trailers is nothing new. Hell, many mid-America states allow semis to to tow more than one trailer in a similar fashion. There’s nothing about an extra pivot point in the middle would create instability.This is the first time seeing one of these. Not sure I would put one on my vehicle. How can this be stable? A get the tongue load sharing. How does this extra hinge not make the trailer unstable?
yeah. They have pins to “lock out” the pivoting. Backs up like any normal trailer setup.Can you back that up? I would think not unless it's solid on one side. And even then the binding would be horrendous wouldn't it?
It's kind of like a car dolly and from my understanding you can't back them up either. Tractor trailer trains come in A and B up here, B Trains have 5th wheels on both trailers and a good driver can back one up, A Trains have a dolly converter and God himself can't back them up.
Lift?States that allow multiple trailers restrict the use to specific highways Because of stability issues. Additional training and certs are required to pull these loads. Why?? Stability, risk etc.. From what I have read, the only requirement to add this equipment to your rig is the cash to do it. Don't get me wrong, I take risks. In this case, I think I would simply buy the right rig to start with.
I did a quick search and found nothing related to testing done on the addition of the "Lift" this unit adds to the back of the RV. Not for me today.
I hear that. I have a similar number of miles under my belt towing (although not the decades ), and my personal experience shows that if you can get the weight off a rear bumper of an RV, it'll tow better. With a 24ft trailer and a 30ft RV, the axles are just too far apart and the geometry and physics get a bit wonky. These little guys are a great way to make it safer to tow--more stability, less stress, etc.Just my 2 cents. I have over forty years and 100k miles of active trailer towing including everything from 34 ft. travel trailer, dump trailer's, flat bed's, boat trailers, car hauler's, utility trailers and more, all over North America. IMHO a well maintained and properly loaded, secured and balanced trailer with a weight distributing hitch is all you should need.
Ha. That's a lot of tires. Get some slicks for that boss. The purple crack will change your lifeAbsolutely go with your gut.
I just added up all the cars, trucks, tractors and trailer tires that I still own at 48....yikes that's a lot of rubber to keep inflated.... and I'm suppose to be retired!! and I still want to add slicks for the Boss !
