Not my thing at all. Looks top heavy to me but then people for the most part don't care.

Why not just get a bigger trailer? Seems like less work too.

Looks fine to me. If he would extend that rack to the front bumper like a tool truck he could get both up there and drop the trailer. Just keep it under 13' and go have some fun.

^True, except it’s easier to be grumpy pants over because you don’t like them d@mn kids with their loud stereos and loud buggies on your beach!

While I think it’s an expensive and inefficient way to haul a SxS, I never passed one and thought they might tip over.

If an 8 lug truck, whi it appears to be..... A camper as noted, myself with 2000+'of sprinkler/sch 40 conduit pipe , stack of lumber 2' high x 4' wide 12-16' long boards would be worst that a buggy as shown.

Not saying how I know this!
