Hey folks,

I have a Cruiser CF33LF, I want to tow my little 5x10 trailer behind it with my Yamaha Grizzly on the trailer.

With the low tongue weight of my little trailer could I get away with this?

Thanks for the suggestions.

That would maybe haul it, I have one also. I used it for a cargo carrier with light stuff in it. BUT look at your overall length, 65' MAX in Texas. With my trailer I'm right at 49-50'.

This is what I want to tow behind my Cruiser.

The trailer is 10ft long plus 3 ft of tongue.

I asked my dealer's tech about using a bumper hitch on my Zinger. He said he doesn't recommend it and definately wouldn't do it without reinforcing the bumperwith some angle brackets to the frame.(in particular he pointed to putting one in the middle for twist and bend).I havea small boat trailer (or my utility trailer) I was considering pulling.

I wouldn't tow it off your bumper I have read stories about RV bumpers falling off with just a bike rack on it. I would do something off the frame.

You are a braver man than I am if you pull it off your trailer bumper. I have a 6X14 trailer like yours with a Polaris 500HO and I would never pull it from the bumper of our trailer. If you are going to pull it behind your trailer you need a receiver hitch welded to the frame.

Ok, thanks guys, will go that route...just didn'tknow how beefy our bumpers were, mine seems to be welded pretty good to the frame in 4 places.

On second thought, i may not be able to weld one up due to the rear landing gear being there.

I have been looking at the Curt 13703 adjustable hitch. It's a bolt on, so there is some drilling to do. Best price i found so far was with American RV. http://www.americanrvcompany.com/sea...mp;search.y=37

I saw that one too and a hidden hitch one both adjustable, the issue here is for me is fit due to the rear landing gear being smack damn near the last part of the frame.

I am going to run out to storage tonight and take a photo of my rear end and post it up.

Rollingrock,

It looks like the Hitch is cheaper on Amazon at least after I calculated shipping to my zip it added 86 dollars to the price. On Amazon it was 264 free shipping.
