I was wondering if anyone on here ever pulled a 2 car gooseneck open trailer. If they had any likes dislikes about it. I'm use to pulling a enclosed so I know about the lenght and stuff. I just wanted to know how they are going down the highway. Any help would be great. Thanks.

You should be fine with that dmax pulling it. Lots of people pulling 3 car wedges with dmaxes.

i'm with ^^ B... believe it or not it should actually tow as good as your enclosed due to the lack of wind drag. If you get a 2-3 axle depending, the trailer holds alot of the weight too.

ive pulled a gooseneck trailer before its alot different then pulling a tag along... good thing about them you dont need any sway control becuase the load is up and over the rear axle.. bad thing..(well not really bad) when you are turning the trailer wont track behind you like a normal trailer would... takes a few turns to get used to.. if you do get one.. id pull it with out anything on it around town or something for a few trial runs!! i had a 36' dove tail i rented from a local farmer to pull some friends 4x4's

heres a link to the hitch i have on my truck.. only problem with it is the chain straps rattle around when i hit bumps. makes it sound like the truck is falling apart!!
