After looking at the bumper on the back of the trailer, I’d be afraid to even hang a bike rack off of it…let along try to pull a trailer.
Has anyone else welded in some square tubing supports to the main frame in order to make their travel trailer capable of towing a small trailer?
Any info would be great!
Yes, its a bad idea for so many reasons. The 8x10 trailer behind the travel trailer itself is a bad idea. The addition of heavy ATVs stands a good chance of pulling the rear out of the 19 foot trailer designed to be towed not to tow. If you decide to try this, please make sure you post a video of the first attempt to climb a steep grade. (or for the matter descend a steep grade). With no brakes on the heavy ATV trailer (unless you have figured a way to brake it), You are apt to see the ATV trailer pass you towing the travel trailer backwards.
My personal opinion is that this fits in the "Hey guys, watch this!!
