Looking for picture of Truck + 5th wheel pulling a Boat!

A while ago I've seen this picture on here of somebody's truck with a 5th wheel camper and towing a boat behind it.

Anybody has a link to it?

Thanks!

Re: Looking for picture of Truck + 5th wheel pulling a Boat!

I've got a few of my 5th wheel and sail boat. But I don't have a place to upload them (and don't see or can't find) an easy way to make a gallery.

Re: Looking for picture of Truck + 5th wheel pulling a Boat!

Thanks for the site. I've uploaded a few pictures of my truck, and the "train" as my friends like to call the 5th wheel and the sailboat.

I wasn't able to find a hitch that would fit on the back of the fifth wheel so I built one out of 6" channel and 1/4x2x3 tubing. Its not pretty (needs paint at least) but it seems to work pretty good.

here is the link http://community.webshots.com/user/gryantaylor

let me know if the link works

Hey TurboHans,

If you look here it shows that it is not legal to tow two trailers in Florida.

Re: Looking for picture of Truck + 5th wheel pulling a Boat!

TurboHans,

Check with your local state. That web site is incorrect about Alabama. You can two doulbes as long as your using a fifth wheel and are less than 65'. That sight says that you can't in Alabama.

I pulled my 27' Cherokee fifth wheel and a 15' bass boat for two years without a problem. I was 67' total, over two feet, but never had a problem.

I traded the Cherokee for a 34' Cougar with the slide out rear bumper. I no longer have a place to put a hitch and would be way over. Had to put a trailer hitch on the wife's Jeep Liberty.

Re: Looking for picture of Truck + 5th wheel pulling a Boat!

Anyone ever tow a car behind the fifth wheel? I have a race car and three kids. I am trying to find a way to make everyone happy.

Try this site. The site Water junky give showed that Kansas didn't allow to pull 2 trailers. That is incorrect. Some of the sites that I have looked at don't give accurate info. FYI

So far every one of the preceding web pages has had incorrect information in one form or another. Don't believe everything you read on the internet, check with the appropriate officials in your state.
