I love the paint job. Do you have a close up picture of the trailer? You also have my dream truck in the "right" color.

We are hoping to make it to Montana this summer after spending a few days with friends in Wyoming. We have never been there and are really looking forward to the trip. Friends from our fishing club go every year and love the beauty of the area.

Lizbeth,
I'll try to get some close ups of the paint job in a couple of days.

Anyone know how we can find out which US states allow double trailers? I love this idea but don't feel it will be permissalbe in Florida.

Non-commercial use is not legal in Oregon either....which means everyone except semi-trucks.

I saw a pickup pulling a Scotty sticky pulling a utility trailer loaded with two 4wheelers a couple of days ago here at the lake. Don't know how legal, probably not. But you gotta take your toys with you don't ya? Mike

How much tongue weight do you have on the boat trailer? and then how much tongue weight on the 13 ft trailer?
By the way the double hitch is legal in Iowa as long as the total length of vehicle and towed units does not exceed 65ft. It is not legal in Minnesota.

If you Google "state towing laws", you will find lots of matches. Many companies associated with towing (selling hitches, etc) post some version of a list, and I suspect most are pulled from the same source. I also suspect that most have errors, and are out of date. The one from LoadRite is in the Excel file format, which could be convenient if you have Microsoft Excel available. The LoadRite list, by the way, says "No" for two trailers in Florida.

I would check with an authoritative source (such as the state or provincial government web site's posting of actual regulations) for destinations of particular interest.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Tongue weight on the Scamp is probably about 125 to 15o LBS--I can lift it but nut much

Weight on the boat is about 80 pounds--pulls like a dream.

Been gone for the last six weeks or so off the web, yep fishing............. Working some and hitting the regional 3-D archery shoots in Libby, Helena and Clearwater.

Going to have to put a new axle on the Scamperoony in a couple of weeks and after some deliberation am going with the leaf springs and straight axle. I like the torsion axle but if it needs replacement as now the whole thing needs to come off.

I'll beef the frame up and install gussets for ridigity... I'll take some photos and post them.

Garo

And Bailey I did not get the PM.
