What is the forums response to seeing a TC mounted on a flatbed trailer? I have been considering this setup for temporarly hualing my camper, as I can't currently afford a truck to haul it at this time. I have always thought it to look a little Redneck, let alone the point that I would not be able to also haul my boat, which is why I prefer a TC. your thoughts are appreciated.

It may look funny there are production toy haulers that basically have a PUP mounted on the front half of the trailer. I stayed at Caboose CG in Remington, IN a couple years ago and there was a guy living in a TC mounted to a flatbed trailer.

Personally, I have no problem with it. I see it no different than a TT. It would probably handle on the road better than if it was on the truck. You certainly have more storage space for hauling toys.

I have always wanted to build one. It may be more stable than the TC on the truck and towing a car trailer with the Scout on it. Since the whole reason we have the TC is for our off-roading with the Scout.

I have seen pic of these somewhere that were done really nice. They had one that I remember that had a firepit in the middle of the trailer and a wroughtiron fence all around on the edge of the trailer and a canopy over the top and used it as a deck.

From your statement it's a temporary thing so...so what if it might be a little redneck? If it gets you camping with the family, go for it. Eventually you'll get the truck you need/want.

I would be careful how far forward you load the camper on the trailer. I think it would be easy to get too much tongue weight. If the flat bed is long enough to move it around some it shouldn't be a problem to find the right spot.

Ain't no such a thang as a temporary semi-redneck. Once you go redneck, there ain't no turning back.

In CA you can haul two trailers as long as the one connected to the truck is a fifth wheel. I could be interested in doing the same thing as long as I could move from truck to trailer easily.
