Okay so I have a dilemma... long story short I have the truck for pulling the travel trailer and my daily driver is a Camry and my wife drives a CRV. My dilemma is how do I get both the travel trailer and the ski to the same spot? First thought was replace CRV with a V6 or V8 SUV but its paid for and we don't want a loan on a car. Second thought was hitch on the CRV but than we have to drive 2 cars everywhere and the CRV will struggle with it over the mountains. So here is where I am at... put the ski and trailer "in" the truck.
SKI is 850lbs and with a trailer I assume under 1500lbs pretty easy. Plus the 800lb tongue weight of my travel trailer.
I am comfortable fabricating a safe and functional system my big concern is how the truck will drive and handle it. Thoughts, ideas?
it would look something like this:

I put two 660 pound drums of honey in my pickup and pull a trailer with another 7-8,000 pounds of honey often and have never had any problems.
Another pro USA thought
I would sell the rat wagons and buy a car from an American company that pays taxes in the USa and gives employees full benefits with good wages none of which yoyo does by the Way.
