      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

2 bumper pull trailers in MN?

Recommended Posts

I know you can pull a bumper pull behind a 5th wheel in MN, but I heard they changed the law to allow you pull a bumper pull behind a bumper pull as long as it is under so many ft long. Anybody know anything about this?

That doesnt make any sense because you cant pull a bumper pull trailer behind another bumper pull, so why would it be legal to pull two of them in tandum with a fifth wheel in front of them?

He's not saying you can pull 2 bumper pulls behind a 5th wheel,he is saying that if you had a bumper pull camper that you could pull a boat behind that. Dozer, I doubt that this would be legal because thats putting alot of pulling weight on the receiver hitch,as were with a fifth wheel your pulling from the frame

I dont think they will ever pass something like this, nor do I think they should. As SS stated it just wouldnt be that safe. I thought I seen last year that they were going to modify the current law and make the total length longer so you could pull a 28 foot camper and a decent sized boat with a 5th wheel.

we have a 23' 5th wheel and a 16ft boat behind a Sierra 1500 with overloads and it was plenty long for me!

have not heard that. do not think it would go thru, that is way too much weight on that style hitch. I hit 55 ft with my trailer and boat behind it, long enough.

I have seen this idea tossed around many times. Is it possiable.....sure I guess, we have a 34 ft. airstream and on the back could mount a ball hitch to haul a 16 ft boat. Now is it legal and safe....Probably NOT. Now I do not know if MN allows ball hitch to ball hitch towing, now trailering a 5th wheel and say a boat or another trailer behind that is just fine. MN state law I believe is 70 ft total vehicle and trailer length without a permit. I will have to admit though I have never seen it listed that you can not do this. Now myself no I wouldn't attempt it, I would have to think it would not be very safe, a weight distrabution hitch, sway control, and brake control would be a must on the first trailer. I would really like to know what the law is though, maybe someone will do some digging to find out for sure.

    • What the heck is everyone up to? I haven't checked in, in a while, figured I better throw leech a few pictures of some snowmobiling...... hasn't been much going on in our neck of the woods with the wind blowing everything into the grass or woods.   Anyone else been out west yet?   7 of us shot out to Cooke City a week ago ( Jan 10 ) and rode the BearTooth Pass / Top of the World Wyoming on Thrus, then headed for Cooke City Montana to ride Friday and Saturday. Met up with 3 more and we had one of the best deep powder rides ever!   Always a lot of work when you ride in the deep stuff but it's something you always wait for, got a good work out from getting stuck ALOT and helping out the others too. I believe the snotel site topped 102" of snow ( they actually topped 100" around new years too ) which is early for them to get that much snow but not all places out west are getting snow, our friend from Colorado said one of the ski resorts out there was only 25% open ...... good thing we didn't plan on going to Colorado riding this year!   I didn't bring a camera with so I had to rely on my buddies to supply a few pictures.   There were some meadows and bowls that were STUPID Deep with powder, dang near didn't make it out, had to be an easy 3 to 4 feet of powder back in them areas...... it was AWESOME!!!!   When you see this much snow in town, it's going to be GREAT up top!                        
    • Some of my cam pics this year. Still showing bucks with antlers in the last week or so. 
    •   Thanks for the offer but I'm not sure how much it will get used. If he shows and interest to get back out there then we'll look for a better solution.    And it was just old scrap plywood from the garage!  Geez you wood guys really get Grainy! 
    • you would swear it was homecoming week in all of our local schools here in rural central mn!  Most schools (businesses alike)here had Vikings day today.  I like everyone older than 30 has dementia and everyone younger doesn't understand our (vikes)history!   I will just sit and live on hope.
    • A season has always been a slam dunk for me.  Season B I am 2 for 3.  Seasons c-the end I am 2 for 2, young birds however. Weather is variable throughout, but i have killed birds in a heavy snow storm, rain and wind throughout the years.  Just scout and hunt, birds will tell you what to do if you listen.   Sometimes they lie though!   Pick the season that best allows you the time to be out the most.  Time in the woods and fields will equal the most success, this year and years going forward.
    • I would never subject my precious Cherry wood to that type of Carnage. But seriously- if you are going to use that thing I have a lowrance ice kit that I can send you if you want to cover s and h.  And if you have the older connector( not blue) I have an ice ducer I'll throw in for free. Just please, for the live of God promise you will never do something like that to wood ever again. 
    •   Ok, well without the casualties then!
