Overall Length??? Any Restrictions???

Just purchased our new C which is a bit over 37' total OAL. I plan to occasionally tow our pontoon boat regionally which is 27' with overall 31' from hitch ball to motor. I've driven semi's in the past and familiar with those requirements but not sure if any restrictions apply to RV's. My total rig will be approximately 68'. Any issues??

I've got friends towing cars/jeeps behind their 5th wheels (double towing) & have been all over the country without any legal issues. Saw 2 identical 45' motorhomes towing jeeps towing trailers with their ATVs on the trailers, had to be 80-90' long. Your actually just towing your boat so unless you're driving like an idiot you should be fine. The simple answer is yes there are restrictions state by state & you'd have to see what it is in your state, but as I said if your properly registered, lights work, have a legal towing system, & aren't driving like drunken sailor you should be good.
