I have a 2520 with FEL, but no ballast box ... I need to only occasionally trailer it a few hundred miles on four lanes in only somewhat hilly countryside, including interstates.
My tow vehicle is small - Ford Sportrac with 5000# tow rating - been using OK for several years to pull a 20 foot fiberglas lake boat (SeaRay 20) on a single axle surge brake trailer. I also pull a 5x8 single axle landscape trailer pretty often.
I can't change out tow vehicle! (I may at some future time, but not now)
Would like to replace the small landscape trailer (don't have room to store two) with a dual purpose trailer that will allow me to move the 2520 once in a while. My research says I will have to have a tandem solution - some have said I could make a 12' work and other 14'.
I would prefer surge brakes since I would not have to modify the Sportrak and could also use the trailer with any other tow without mods.
So, I need a minimalist approach ... what can I just barely make work without being unsafe.
Would appreciate your thoughts!
