I pulled a 34ft Trendsetter stacker with one car and was ok. That was only a 35 or 40 minute ride. But the truck seemed to do just fine.

We have a 30' renegade stacker and can pull it with a f-350 1 car.
The height of the trailer over the truck is the real problem. I think it would be alot better with a wing of some sort over the top of the truck. The power isnt a problem just the height of the trailer catching the wind.

No not safely. I had a 30' Cargomate stacker and it would crush my Dodge 3500 dually. The trailer was 9500+-lbs empty, add a car, gear, spare, generator, fuel and it is close to 15,000 lbs. Maybe a small fifth wheel stacker if they make one but not a tag even with a 15,000lb weight distribution hitch. I did pull it empty a few times and once 40 miles with one car way back and all gear out of cabinets and attic. Brakes, tires, suspension not set up for that weight and air resistance.

Hope your not going against the wind while towing .A Roof deflector would help. i have had a Cube van with extra high box and on windy days you really felt it.

I did it once, and every 18 wheeler just about blew me off the road.
If you got no wind, and no hills, and no 18 wheelers passing you, you might get by, but you aint gonna like it.

I pull a 32' tag 14,000gvr trailer w/ac that's also an extra foot taller than normal..with my Duramax crewcab dually..
my total (truck and trailer) weight is just under 20k..
pulls like a dream...

how tall is a stacker..?
I would think that a stacker on a dually with a 5th wheel set-up would tow fine..
although I think like the others..that a camper-shell/wing would definitely help..

Can you, Yeah I guess so, but i recently hooked mine up and it looked like an ant and a mountain. Then I got to thinking about it, If you do the math, I dont think its a real good idea. Stopping it and getting around a tractor trailer or wind gust could cause some major issues. Keep in mind what you have invested in the trailer, golf cart, let alone the car and spare equipment. Just my .02.

My dually pulled a 42 ft. Pace Big Foot with 18 inches of extra height.
We pulled a 48' Pace Bigfoot w/18"over height with a single wheel f-350 , and a 52' vintage w/12" over height (30,750 lbs total weight) with a f-350 dually(twice in 1 month from west of Nashville,Tennessee to Bradenton,Florida).....and I also know of a guy here locally that pulled an 80' doublewide house trailer a short distance with a Z-71 Chevy pickup. All 3 of these stories are 100% true and also 100% really bad ideas.
