    Notice what the boat is hooked to.

    Let's see...Motorhome...check!...Motorcycle...check!...Automobile (with bike rack)...check!...Powerboat...check!...Canoe...check!. Are you sure we didn't forget something?

    If some is good, then more is better, and too much must be...just right! [:D]

    He should have that outboard tipped up but hey, that might make his rig too long. He must be confident of his setup since he is in the passing lane.

    Ya, he must have been absent on the day they showed everyone how to tie down another vehicle to a flatbed too. Hmm wonder what the length limitations are. Oh ya, to tow double trailers the tv must also be a truck, and perhaps a commercial license and double/Tripple endorsement. And I'm sure his insurance covers that too.

    Never ceases to amaze me. Just hook it up and tow it down the road. Wwhhhaaaatttt?....

    Dangerous to say the least for himself and other vehicles on the road I can imagine an emergency stop and the problems that would cause. also unlawful in Fl. and other states..Takes all kinds

    Idaho allows a vehicle to tow two trailers with a max of 75 feet. But the hookup on the boat does not look legal or intelligent.

    A rookie would leave his motor down.

    To tow 2 trailers in Ontario, the first one must be a 5th wheel. Legally, that red thing (Kia?) must use 4 wheel straps to secure it to the car trailer. Chains are not permitted up here anymore. The boat also needs to be hooked to the flatbed with a proper trailer hitch set up. Hope you took the picture and got out of there before a sudden stop in traffic flow had all that stuff spinning all over the place. Cool to see and laugh about though.

    He could turn the canoe over and put it over the motor, then everything would be just fine.

    But that would ruin the nice pointy ends on the canoe.

    I'd really love to hear him explaining how he thought his setup was okay to the trooper when he gets pulled over...

    I think this is a recipe for hurting someone else.

    I would like to talk with the person driving this just to see what kind of person they are.

    My wife and I drove North through Michigan Sunday and there were many boats hooked to campers hooked to trucks. The only incident we saw involving a camper had a pop up shred a tire and throw wheel well and trim pieces all over the road.

    Holy..... I missed that little detail in the first pass of that picture. One good pothole and that red SUV is coming right off that trailer. It only looks like it has to move 4 or 5 inches.

    You back it up like you would with out any trailer on the TV. But it's very difficult to do and keep the trailers straight. Takes lots of practice. I've done it twice. Don't care to try it again.
