You can do it with 28' or less.

I think it it can be done on a 28' deck myself as long as the rigs can get cozy

here is a 34' for reference.



atlest 1.5' wasted between the first rig and gooseneck, 2+ feet between the rigs, and you don't need the 3' overhang on the end of the trailer past the last tire.

A Cummins :stan::sonicjay::sonicjay::sonicjay:






I would definitely stay away from bumper pull trailers if that was even a thought.

yup,was thinking about a double,most of time would probably haul only one rig,then I would be bumming dragging longer trailer around, just trying to think thru all the options, Hey you guys going to make the pig gig??

I drag a 37' GN that will probably fit 3 TJ's if loaded correctly. A 28-30' would be enough, but the extra space is always nice. I wouldn't dream of a bumper towed two car trailer. Would the 250 haul it? Yes. But, it won't handle nearly as well as a gooseneck.

My buddy pulled a XJ and a YJ (both with 60's and all the good heavy stuff) on a 24' flat deck, on a bumper pull. Up to 70 it did fine, past 70 it fish tailed. The truck was a four door duramax.

We use a 24' Gooseneck to haul a CJ5 and CJ7... They are shackled together, but it fits ok. A 3/4 ton Silverado pulls it with no problem.

Put a flatbed on the truck and pull a normal 16 - 18' carhauler trailer (bumper pull). I doubt it is an option but we did this with our tow rig, until we sold it. It worked great.

wtf was he doin' over 65 in that setup though? Hell, I'd probably sit at 60 with that setup.
