    The best method of hand packing a bearing is to put the bearing and a blob of grease into a Baggie, then work the grease into the bearing. Keeps any dirt on your hands out of the bearing and keeps your hands cleaner.

    Or a cheap repacking tool for anywhere between 10 and 30 bux. Been using a grease gun type for 30 years with great results.

    Perhaps the tongue weight on the front trailer was way too light?

    Double towing really ups the requirements on the front trailer being a stable tow, in itself. Minor suspension slop and side to side tendencies with just the front trailer will be amplified when another trailer is attached behind.

    When the second trailer is attached, all the tongue weight from the second trailer subtracts from the tongue weight of the front trailer. So the front trailer should be quite heavy on the ball, and the second trailer should also be forward weight biased. More tongue weight on the tow ball increase trailer stability. For both the first and second trailer.

    Longer tongue on the front trailer would also help stability.

    When towing double the less overhang behind the first trailer axle and the second ball, the more stable.

    That popup tent trailer configuration is not really adjustable, other than packing as much weight inside the front as possible to get the tongue weight up.

    Just adding a ball to the back of an existing trailer is not enough. Towing double changes almost everything.

    I use disposable gloves. I want to physically see grease squirt out the other side. I had a bearing tool, but can never find it.

    Looks scary to begin with, why would you think that's a good and safe idea?

    It is 100% legal here in Texas. The popup is tongue heavy and it pulled fine. But when i was passing and hit 75 (which is the speed limit) it would get some sway.

    There's a considerable difference between 'legal' and 'safe'. I see people towing like this every day, usually several cars going to Mexico, but always well below the speed limit.

    if i were pulling this 65mph would be my max and passing would be very minimal.

    especially since its a Ford.
