Must be fun to tow something like that on a windy hill!

Looks like you got the truck for it though.
Actually, the only way I know the boat is there is the ride is a little rougher and I have a camera on the back of the fiver to keep an eye on things. The boat runs just as straight as the fiver. It pulls like a dream and as long as the fiver makes a corner the boat will too! It is nice to get to a campground, drop the boat put the fiver where I want then hook up to the boat and go where I want. I don't need to have a site right on the water.

It's not terrible long. It is about 65' from end to end. Here in Mn. I can be up to 70'! Also the CGVW is only a tad over 17k pounds.

Oh, it's not bad to herd down the road! The nice thing is that both trailers will go where ever I want them to go!! Actually, you don't even realize the second trailer is there. If the first trailer makes it the second one won't have any issues!

Well, the great thing about California is that you can, from where we live, drive an hour to the beach then 3 hours to snow in the Sierras all in the same day. There are some great places to camp year round, but the sites tend to be on the smaller side. There are some exceptions, but they are few and far between. I've seen some really beautiful campgrounds with really BIG sites from the midwest to the east coast that I really wish we could check out. Maybe in the future. There's always a trade off.
