F@!% oh dear I know............
Already thought about that and makes me cringe so I try not too.
Will hopefully enjoy it for awhile before I start spending some money again!!
We will see how hard it works the ole D'max with my 35's and all the toys behind it?
Sometimes I think about just selling all the crap and making life a bit simpler.............but I wouldn't be happy then either

It's fun until you get in a spot and have to back up.

just be smart. don't get into a spot and then think about how to get out. on my 12' rear trailer, I put a jack that has a wheel that swivels. this way if I just have to get in some where that I need to back up, I just unhook the back trailer, ( takes 2 minutes to unhook ), and then come back and get as close as I can with my son spotting. then I just roll the trailer up the 5th wheel and hook it up. not really that big of a deal.
btw, it helps taking off sum weight on the pin hitch.

It would surprise me if any bumper-pull trailer had the frame/structure to support towing a second trailer behind it. Some 5'ers aren't even capable.

scary what some manufactuer's put under there. I make all my own hitches for my fifth wheels, purchased a new camper this year, and thought to myself you know.... i seriously do not feel like crawling under this camper to put a hitch on " TERRIBLE JOB " so i allowed my RV dealer to farm it out to a local weld shop.... told them i needed it "class 3" or 5000LB capacity. SURE! so what do i get back? the most disgusting job i have ever seen in my life, pulled her with that hitch anyway to the lake because of course it was finished 3 days before our trip, came home with it bent, so i cut it off and took it down to the weld shop and placed it on the weld shop managers desk and thanked him for wasting my time. Got my money back though. Not to mention they welded on the frame "across the grain" which is a HUGE no no... just for everyone insight its my opinion that EVERY hitch needs two crossmembers to prevent cantilever, and allow the front tube to distribute the lateral forces to the rear tube. Just be careful with your hitches and monitor them, because if a manufacturer says rated for 3000LBS they mean it, 1LB over would likely rip the hitch off ! i find it sickening how they do everything in their power to make things as light as possible

if that is the case towing 1 pound over max gross for your 5er and the pin box would rip off, or the axles would snap.. I know they are trying to give us a product that we can afford, but you get what you pay for, not the other way around.. the engineers designed a tolerance into their products knowing full well we will exceed
