    Can you just imagine how fast that little caster wheel will be turning at highway speeds? Even high speed bearings would melt sooner or later.

      We're gonna need longer safety chains Bubba. I never towed a thing way back when. What did you guys use to tow those big heavy glass boats before everyone needed a 500 HP, 1 ton Hemi powered 4X4 with 22" off road rubber to pull a 17' tinny?

          About an '06 Tacoma - not very far or comfortable. With the new Tundra, would go much farther than the trailer would want to.

            In the early 70's my '64 T-Bird had no issues with my 17' Deep V fiberglass tub.

              I towed a 1800 lb total weight Glasspar 18" outboard 75 miles each way with a little 6-cyl 100 hp 1957 Mercedes sedan that didn't weigh much more. No problems, but then I was much younger and crazy as hell ;-)

                Sad reality is they will probably be fine if something goes wrong. It will be somebody next to them that gets hurt.
