I see you are from Illinois. Checking out a couple things, "double tow" is permissible in Illinois, but the total length of your rig can only be 60 feet (to be legal in Illinois.) Also, consider this:

"Rear unit must be the lightest and be a trailer designed for transporting a boat, all-terrain vehicle, personal watercraft or motorcycle."

Hopefully, you have checked the laws in your state to be sure you can transport livestock in the 2nd trailer?

Nah I don't really care what the law is. Some are ment to be broke. But the last trailer it's for sure lighter. I'm hardly ever in IL so other states don't know the laws. Either does IL. It's not so much law as guide lines. It'll be fine. Plus I'm hauling my motorcycle in it too. But thank you for the tip info and heads-up. IL police if worse comes to worse a couple hundred dollars they'll look the other way ��������

WOW!
From admitting to flagerantly ignoring the laws to offering brides to law enforcement, good examples for newbies that don't have a clue.

Interesting response there brianshellhart.

I'm a computer software tester. I've been doing this for a long, long time now. Many years ago, in one of my original training classes for this profession, one of the very first things we were told, and this stuck with me for years and years now....

As a software tester, it is "yours" to test and report. It doesn't matter if the report is a "pass" or a "fail". It's your job to "report" on the results of your tests. After that, it's someone else's responsibility to determine what to do with the results of that report. They may decide the bug needs to be fixed, and they may decide the bug is acceptable. But it's not YOUR responsibility to determine what to do next. It's theirs after you've submitted your report. The monkey is off your back.

So, I reported my findings with no bias or prejudices, and still stand that way. The results of my findings now rest on your shoulders. Good luck!

Brake controller gain

Keep in mind that the setup you’ve described will present another issue. The 7way plug you’ve wired to the 5th wheels rear bumper will be sending the same gain to the horse trailer as the 5th wheel axle brakes. You may experience locked up brakes on the horse trailer when normal stopping is called for on the 5er.

I recommend you put that thing on the back, set your gun safe on it and take a trip. See how that works out.

On a previous 5th I had the sheet metal bumper removed and a heavy 4X4 bumper with a receiver welded on. But the purpose was to carry 1 or 2 bicycles, not tow a horse trailer. There is no way I would do that.
I think me and dutchmensport had a similar work culture.
Nothing personal but even if you can weld airplane wings on the fuselage hanging upside down by your jock strap, you need an engineer to look at what you're thinking.
