To tow a second trailer, make sure that the second trailer weighs less than the camping trailer. If it does not the rig will be unstable and could result in a "wag the dog" situation. Also, make sure that the tongue weight of the second trailer does not push on the rear receiver enough to create negative tongue-weight on the camping trailer. This will also result in an unstable towing situation (weight details).
