They pull just fine. I have a sway bar on the camper and Eventually I think I will put one on the boat as well just to stiffen it up a bit. The camper also has its own brakes so the whole rig stops pretty well. Turns are fun... you dont have to swing any wider than you do with one trailer and the boat just follows the same line. You definitely have to pay attention though... I found out the worst thin you can do if the rear trailer starts swaying is to look in the rearview mirror. It causes POI or rather DOI ( Driver induced oscillations) so just look strait ahead and drive strait and it goes away.

Ohh and also, it is possible to back the rig up... I could easily launch the boat inthat configuration if I needed to.. I dont however as parking would be a problem.
