No pics. Performance 18' steel deck with dovetail.

Horsepower is like a hot girl with STDs. You know you want to hit it but you're afraid of the consequences.

I now flat tow my jeeps but I had been using a car hauler with a wooden deck for a number of years. Storing the trailer usually required getting a bigger camping space then I needed but it did make for a nice rear deck for the camper.

I bought the trailer about 12 years and I dont remember width being an option but I run 31x10.5 on my TJ and I have about 6-8 inches between the wheel on the jeep and the side of the trailer on each side. The grand cherokee shown has 1 board between the tire and the edge of the trailer and I think they are 8 inch boards.

There's more answers to this request than there are letters in your post. Go to a few trailer lots and look around. I'd say that I've seen rigs loaded on every example of a trailer you'll find that is big enough to fit a rig on. I've seen a bunch loaded on trailers that weren't even really big enough for the job.

You've got to narrow down the search. Bumper hitch? Goose neck? Open? Enclosed? Flat bed? Rails? Dedicated rig hauler? Multi-use utility? Single rig only? More than one rig? I've got one friend that has a pop-up camper sitting across the front of his trailer and his rig sits behind it. Another friend has a pickup type camper on the front of his trailer. Another friend hauls two full sized rigs on his goose neck. At a local event a fellow showed up with an 18 wheeler with three full size rigs and a couple of ATVs on a flat bed. What is it going to be towed with?

Any of us could throw out examples of what we use, but would any of them work for you? Who knows?

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

To haul two rigs, I'd be looking at goose neck trailers. Two full size rigs + a suitable trailer is at the upper limit (and probably above) of what I'd tow with an F250. For that kind of load, I'd want at least an F350 in front. I've seen it done with an F250 but I wouldn't feel comfortable towing that load.
