RE: Pulling a flatbed

You don't say what make MH or the engine size (HP & Torque) as well as the manufacturers towing recommendations :? Thanks for all the comments. I did not list all the details of my MH because that is one area (maybe the only area) I have some knowledge in since I've towed for over 30 years. It was more about length since someone told me if the MH was over 40' it took a different CDL. My MH has the 350 cat with Allison and frieghtliner chassis with air suspension. It is rated for 10,000# towing, and yes I know that rating still has the gvwr as the limiting factor. Thanks again for all the help.

RE: Pulling a flatbed

It's a 21' deck. I too am thinking ATV up front and the jeep either back a little or maybe backed on the trailer so the motor is over the tires. We have a public scale close so I can try a couple of arrangements to balance the wieght. BTW this is my first time with a DP Motorhome. Before this it was a truck and toy hauler. I'm pretty excited to be able to take the jeep with me, it's mostly for rock crawling but is still street legal.

RE: Pulling a flatbed

Thank you all. Yes the Jeep and ATV would be on the flatbed. I will have to try different positions and wiegh the TW to not overload, but also not be too heavy on the tail.

Pulling a flatbed

Knowing that I'm limited to the weight limits of the DP motorhome, can you legally pull a 21' flatbed trailer with a jeep and ATV behind a 38' motorhome or do I need a different class license because of the length?
