I pulled two broken down full size chevys on a triple axle flatbed once. Pulled them fine but stopping was scary as hell, I think the dude riding with me pooped a little.

Don't worry cupcake, I wasn't on the highway or anything it was just private roads. One was towing the other and when it broke down, we put them both on the trailer and I towed it the rest of the way back to the shop.

Is that even possible? I would imagine the hitch would be dragging on the ground. I have a picture of a ranger towing an old bel air on like a 17 footer and it is dragging.

Id like to see pics of that.. i think it might be possible depending on the size and weight of the chevys. tractorman had 10 rolls of hay and there over 1000lbs each.

That would be poor trailer balance, tongue weight should only be about 10% of trailer weight. I do have a pic (I made it my profile pic) towing a GMC and it barely levels the truck. The tongue weight was probably only 500 lbs.

Pulling old wood structures (damn heavy because the drag !!!)

You will notice that my truck was almost stock by that time, actually the first mod was adding the hitch receiver
