dual car trailer on trailer ball

I've seen one or two on the street but they obviously aren't very common. I was thinkning about a 2 vehicle trailer to tow my bronco and my brothers jeep behind my excursion. I've seen hitches for the excursion rated up to about 15000lbs which would be enough. ANyone tow a trailer this long on a ball? I know it would be a bitch to manuever, but I'd like to check it out. Anyone know who makes such a trailer. Thanks
Rob

Use a load equalizing hitch and you'll be better off. What's the total weight of the trailer and vehicles? What's the tongue weight. As I recall equalizing bars come in increments from 500lb, 750 lb, and 1000 lb. Don't know if they come larger than 1000 lb though. What's the tongue weight rating for a 15,000 hitch. Air bags on your rear axle would help with handling.

Look into a pintle hook setup, those are rated for some serious weight when set up properly.
