U need to go ahead and spring and put a flat bed on that dually, bit I see them hauling golf carts all the time like that with campers, especially around the beach, and a electric golf cart is pretty heavy

That's pretty cool but is it dependable for long trips
My last trip from Hatfield McCoy I burnt a trailer axle up about 40 miles from home on way back,called a friend with a roll back to come get machines off and I pulled trailer on home on 1 axle, but seeing how easy they went on that rollback and how easy to tie down being waist level, I liked that..

I like it. Me personally I would have made just two ramps that lay in the bed and extend out past the tail gate that way I can remove them when not hauling the Teryx4. But if that truck is basically a dedicated tow rig it works for me. Plus I have the short bed so Im probably gonna end up with a toyhauler 5th wheel or i'll weld up those infamous UTV racks have it just sitting high. I've got the tow package so I have the front/rear anti sway bars, overload spring in the rear and it seems to handle sway with truck bed camper very nicely so far.

That only works with a long bed, and even then you have to have a jack on your camper tongue that sits back far enough to keep the tailgate from hitting it. But thats a rare truck you have there (single cab dually) so it works for you!

U can put a extender on your Reese hitch, see it at beach all the time, just cuts down the camper weight u can tow

When I had a RZR, I would haul it like that. But I do not think the Teryx will fit in my 3/4 ton chevy, there is only a 60 inch clearance. I did of course make a tailgate for the RZR so I would clear the trailer when turning, the tailgate is only 12 inches wide to give the rear wheels a place to rest.

@ Gibsonj668 - Nice. What's the MPG on that beast? Not that it's all that great on my dually.

The little mini tail gate is purpose built and removes just like the factory tailgate. It's built to leave room to hook up my little 20' camper. Yeah a toy hauler would be awesome! I spent my limit on the toy so now I have to make do with the hauler I had. LOL

Yes, that's pretty much what I did with regard to the mini talk gate. As you can see in the pictures, she's tight in there. The rear tires rub the rear bed up rights.

I looked into those. They were kind of pricey. I'm not any good with aluminum so building one like that for me would have been a beast out of steel. The little bed extension I made swaps out with the factory tailgate in 5 minutes. It also leaves me room to hook up the bumper pull camper without getting in the way.

So, it hooks into the factory tailgate notches? I was curious how it was held on... I would consider some way to hold that vertical to the hitch....just for safety's sake. Bolt on clamp or something...in case there's a big bump, you don't want that weight bouncing on the hitch when towing your trailer.

Keep an eye out...maybe you'll find someone wanting to trade a toy hauler for a camper. You're going to have to upgrade if you go long travel and have a wider wheelbase.

Ah I see. I really like that you made it removable. Does it rest on the bumper bracket AND hitch or how did you get it to lock into place while driving etc.

@ Poppasmurf - If I can keep my foot out of, I can avg. 13-15 mpg's with just the Teryx on the flatbed. When I pull the 39ft toy hauler out west I avg. around 8-10 depends on the headwind. It is an awesome tow rig, took a lot to get it to that point, cutting the frame moving the axel forward and getting the rear 2-speed rear end gear ratio right. But I can top hills out west with zero problems and watch all the 1ton trucks disappear in my mirror at the same time.

I saw a wild one on the road coming home from work yesterday I had never seen before. There was a guy with a big dually pulling a 5th wheel camper. The crazy thing was he had a large rack over the cab from the front bumper to the back of the crew cab, like you see on those 18 wheeler car haulers, and on that he was carrying a golf cart! I immediately thought about this thread because it looked plenty big enough to carry a Teryx too.

Sorry, I was on the road and didn't get a picture It was the craziest thing I've seen in a long time!
