Love the ability to take the MC with. Don't like the idea of not having a rear window with a ToyHauler.

Too much stuff...looks like those people that full timers sell the B&M and forgot to get rid of all the "stuff". I've never seen a hearse pulling a U-Haul...if you don't use it, get rid of it.

I wonder how many flats per mile the guy with the two tiered trailer gets?

Pulling a "motor vehicle" that is pulling a "trailer" is legal. So this set up is ok. If it were RV-trailer-trailer, then it would need a special permit state by state. In any case it's dangerous. But hey you know RV people. We'll try anything once!

RV Triple Towing Laws, Legalities And Considerations - RV Life

says East Coast illegal but West Coast legal.

https://rv-roadtrips.thefuntimesguid...triple_towing/

Some allow and some don't.


Indiana Trailer Towing Laws
The maximum length of 2 or more vehicles together, including any cargo is 60 feet. The maximum length for 3 or more vehicles together, including a load, is 65 feet. The maximum load size in length is 3 feet beyond the front and 4 feet beyond the rear.

Guess in the end you need to plan a route that takes you through triple hook up states to avoid tickets.

Thanks for the info.

This is the kicker as it is NOT legal to tow with two ball type hitches.

"In some states, triple towing is restricted to adding the second trailer only behind a 5th wheel trailer."

The only Law you nee to worry about is the "Interpretation of Barney" when you get pulled over in the middle of the night. Outside of speeding, excessive window tinting, running lights out, lenses cracked or a few other common violations, most cops don't know the laws as well as you think. Their biggest objective is to find "reasonable cause" to pull you over and shake you down, as most of them assume 75% of every "civilian" (as if they are military) is breaking the law of has something illegal with them. Double towing varies so much from state to state, you'd never make it across the country.

Have you always had a tough time with authority figures?

"always"?...actually never, but it is what it is. I have a fair amount of friends that are LE. Everyone has objectives.

Barney will never hurt a flea...the only thing he can shoot with any accuracy is the ceiling in the Sheriff's Office or his own foot..if he can get the bullet out of his pocket.

We have an old saying about his firearm prowess: "He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, if he was locked inside it!"
