Default Stacking trailers

I have two 18' car haulers now.

I'd like to stack them somehow so I have more room to put snow.

Anyone else do this? I don't have a forklift, one trailer has removable fenders.

Any ideas?

Block the bottom trailer tires, hook up to the 2nd trailer with your truck/what ever you move the trailer with, and back the 2nd trailer onto the 1st. So pretty much your trailers are 69'ing.

Backing it on should work well didn't think of that I'll have to get some good 2x10's tho to support the top trailer the axles are wider than the decks.

Trailers aren't too heavy, so I'd just get a couple pieces of steel beam or tube, and a bunch of cinder blocks, and treat it like lifting a body off a lifted truck.

Lift one end with a jack or cherry picker, stack blocks and place beam across it to support that end fo the trailer, now go do the other side as high as you can. Then go back, jack it up, lift it up, add one more block, etc. Just make sure your beams are wide enough so that once its lifted up about 4 feet, you can back your second trailer underneath it.

If you are comfortable with it, you can just leave it on the tubes/beams all winter. Otherwise, put some blocks on the lower trailer that will support the upper trailer, and slowly lower and remove blocks.

Not super fast, but easy, and you only need blocks of some sort, and a couple 10ft pieces of tube or even some 4x6s (or even a couple 2x6s nailed together to make a few beams). So pretty cheap to do.

Advantage of this way, is that you can have both tongues stacked on top of each other. Less space taken up.

I thought this was going to be a redneck version of some home improvement / makeover show.
