    Here's my rig. I'm looking for a mid-90's truck and a 6 x 14 Wells Cargo for next year. This set up cost me next to nothing as my dad had 2 old tilt-deck snowmobile trailers we fixed up.

    Yep DS,
    Here in Alberta we can pull a B-train legally. It works really well for getting around in my small town although it doesn't track well above 40mph. (only a problem when I have to go to the farm!!)

    It actually follows pretty well. Like I said I only get a little fish-taily at about 40 mph. Necessity breeds strange solutions!!

    i'd say you've got too much tail weight if its fish tailing. however with a double setup.... i've got no idea.

    I use to have a JD that looked like yours. It had a 17hp Kawasaki(electric Start), and a 48" deck, bagger and a sulkie!
