Last year I purchased a 2011 Zinger 31SB and I really liked the fact that it had a door going out the back of it.

Now, this is causing problems, as I would like to tow my jetski behind the camper. It is killing me having to take two vehicles to the lake.



Due to the split bumper, a standard hitch will not work.



I know there has to be someone out there that has found a solution for this. I would like to try and avoid taking the unit to a welder and having them make something for me. I would think something could be inserted into the 4 inch bumper tubes that are there and then taken off once you got to your destination.



Any advise?

Welcome to the forum. I could be wrong but I don't think you can tow a trailer behind another trailer. In some states you can tow behind a 5er.

Thanks for the response, I should be alright though. I am towing inNorth Dakota and the state does allow triple towing with a maximum combined length of 75 ft. I was unable to locate any additional restrictions.



I will definitely have to get additional clarification before I proceed though.

how about building a craddle for it on the rear of the trailer? i welded two receciever tubes to each frame rail. its bullet proof.its suppossed to void your frame warrenty but i did'nt care. the trailer actually went back to crossroads for warrenty work and no one said a thing. might be better than dragging a trailer. just build a ramp to get the ski off.

A jet ski on it'sown trailer is not real heavy. I would go the route of having a hitch and receiver welded to the frame and pull the jet ski behind. Once you reach your destination you can use your tow vehicle to get it to the water using it's own trailer. We built a bunk to transport a jet ski on a flat bed and it was not fun getting the ski in and out of the water.

For what it is worth, since your trailer is a 2011 you will loose your frame warranty if you attach anything to the trailer frame before the warrnty period is up. Some people care, some don't.
