I live in NC, 60ft max length.....unless you are coming or going to a NASCAR event, then 90ft (no BS). I was advised that most states are 65 and some to 75....but if you have NC tags and have a BooBoo in NC.... the other party now has "cause" for a suit. I run a 32 Alegro Fred with a 24' featherlite....total 60ft.

72 feet is over length here to, but never been stopped of given a problem running northeastern tracks. My concern is crossing the boarded to and from Canada. I was hoping there would have been some members here that had crossed the board and what their experiences were.

I just returned to Oregon from a trip to Alaska. In June I crossed into Canada at Sumas, WA - into Alaska back into Canada and back into the US. My RV is listed 39'6" (or is it 39'3"?) I pulled a 25 foot enclosed car carrier. The length of the trailer with an extended tongue is 30 feet so total is right at 70 feet. I was only asked what is in the trailer - length did not seem to be a consideration. I don't know if that would be the same across the US/Canada border. One I notice in BC & YT is that many of the trucks were very long in length, much longer it appears than my 70 feet.

Yes.

05 34' Monaco Cayman and Pace 26' Alu trailer. Use it mostly to go to the track. Cayman is a bit short for the trailer so looking for 40'ish possibly tag.

Oh, and bonus if the paint on a newer coach matches that of the trailer more closely.

Thanks.

Only still do lapping and DE (driver's ed), but am currently looking for a proper race car to go club racing. Yes, road courses only (Mosport, Watkins Glen, Road America, etc).

Used to have a Corvette, sold it as there was no real place to use it, always wanted to road race at some point.

450 Hp will pull it just fine, the question is how fast do you want to go up hills.

I used to drive truck permitted to 107,000 pounds (gas super tanker).

The Mack tractor had 351 HP, I would be down to 35 MPH on some hills but pulled the tank just fine.

If you are patient you are good to go.

People with 600HP are just out of their minds, it is not needed.

I have an American Dream, 32,000 pounds, pull a 28 foot enclosed trailer with a dragster and all the equipment need to run it , figure another 10,000 pounds.

It has a 325 HP Cummins and I pass trucks and some Motor Homes on hills with it.

Glenn,

Here is a 45 foot Prevost with 30 foot stacker that has a steerable front axle.

This rig was captured parked at the Napa Expo RV Park in Napa CA a few days ago.

Not my rig but just wanted to share an unusual setup.

Now that is neat. They made the trailer look like the MH.

Must be a heck of a thing to back up with the steerable axle.

I want to come out to the March Meet (Hot Rod Reunion), but have been hesitant because of the strict California length enforcement. I wonder how he got around it?

Did you see and earth quack damage?

Not a racer and currently in between RVs right now. Our plan is to sell the house late next year/early 2016 and purchase a Country Coach DP. We will live in it until I retire in Jan 2019. We have dreamed (and planned) for full-timing since 2004 and had expected to already be on the road but post Coast Guard retirement led to a CG civilian job that I just couldn't pass up.

Reading completely through this thread over the past two evenings has gotten my wife and I thinking that pulling a trailer behind a DP might just be the way to go. I work on bicycles as a hobby and have been building wheels for about 4 years now. I currently have 7 bikes in my garage (2 diamond frames, 3 recumbents and two recumbent trikes...4 back surgeries drove me to recumbents and I love them). I will most likely thin the herd "some" but will still probably end up taking at least 4 bikes on the road.

A trailer would allow me to take all my bikes, my bike tools (and other tools as well), wheel truing stand, etc. I could also load up my Broil King Keg smoker and whatever toad we decide to hit the road with.

I read earlier the advantage of having a toad that is big enough to haul the trailer and this seems like a great idea but would probably take up more of the trailer space than we want to give up and our MPG would suffer. My current vehicle is a 2011 Nissan Armada and my wife's is a 2007 Lexus RX-350. The Armada is a beast but would pull a trailer with little issue; the Lexus is in very good shape, still has low miles but would not be able to pull the size trailer I would anticipate us needing. We could buy a vehicle that might work but would rather go with what we currently have.

Anyway...a lot of excellent info and sage advice on this thread and I have picked up some excellent links and ideas.
