We have been camped near this rig a few times when going to St. Anthony sand dunes in Idaho. Huge rig. We passed him one time on I-15 just north of Pocatello, ID when he was pulling the boat behind the trailer as well. I didn't think I was ever going to see the end of it.

Looks like it is double towing, not triple.

You have to watch the video, he pulls a 25 foot boat behind the trailer, the whole thing is over 100 feet long.

I saw the video and saw it when the show was on tv, if you are towing two trailers isn't that towing doubles?

Sorry folks - please don't roast the messenger...towing a trailer behind a 5th wheel = "triple towing." Reportedly, the TV counts...

Here's some references:
Triple Towing: What You Need To Know Before You Pull 2 Trailers Behind A Car, Truck, Or RV | The Fun Times Guide to RVing
or
Fifth Wheelin': Can You Triple Tow?
or from our own experts:
Double and Triple towing definition
But you can see we were still arguing in that thread.

Maybe we should all start calling it "Pulling doubles"

Safe travels to all

I have to admit to being ignorant in these definitions. Thanks for the insite!

Regardless, that is a lot to tow.

In the semi truck world. One power unit and two trailers is pulling doubles. One power unit and three trailers is pulling triples. Kansas only allows triples on the turnpikes. Not the interstates. Colorado allows triple trailers. When the triples rigs come into Kansas from Colorado, Kansas does allow them to go to Goodland, the first city in Kansas. Then they have to break them down into doubles. Takes more trucks and drivers to get the trailers on east on I-70. A pickup and fiver and boat behind, is a triple combination, but not pulling triples. Nevada and Utah both allow semis pulling triples, and it is one truck pulling three trailers.

We used to pull our fiver, with a boat behind. Triple combo. Pulling doubles. Some lakers in Kansas pull a fiver behind their pickup, with a boat behind that, and with a special homemade hitch on the boat trailer with a jet ski behind the boat. Hence pulling triples. If its a private vehicle just going to the lake, the LEOs just look the other way, probably wishing they were going also.

Hey GlenLever,

Don't let them fool you. Towing two trailers in combination is"towing doubles", towing three trailers in combination is"towing triples". The End!

Regards, Howard
