Truck 5th Wheel Motorcycle

Good morning Everyone,

I am considering a Chevy 3500 diesel with a long bed to pull a 35ft Fox Mountain 5th and a motorcycle trailer.

I would appreciate any feedback or insight you could offer.

~~~John

I see no problem. Just realize "Triple Tow" in not legal in all states.

Triple Tow

Thank you for your response. Do you by chance know what states the triple tow is not legal?

Which state do you have your license in. You may need to have a Commercial License with the Doubles/Triples Endorsement to tow both your 5er and motorcycle trailer.

There's, also, length limit for each state you travel through with that setup.

Don't know what state you are in, but a buddy in Pa. got stopped with the same set up. State Police had him follow to the nearest truck stop, gave a summons for triple towing, & "you can move the rig when it's legal". Lucky he was not to far from home, & had a friend come pick up the motorcycle trailer. I don't think that it's legal on most of the east coast.

I agree a toy hauler would be the easiest way to go.

No problem towing a second trailer for our bikes behind our fiver. Been in Oregon now for a bit and nobody has stopped us either. **knocks on wood**

Glad you haven't been stopped and just posting this as information only, but double towing isn't legal in Oregon for those that may be wondering. Enjoy our beautiful state and have fun.

I know. And fueling your own gasoline vehicle isn't legal in Oregon either. You can probably guess how much I care about either of these laws.

If it came down to getting fined we would just hook up the second trailer to the jeep until we got out of the state. Until we get pulled over for triple towing, I'll take my chances since the jeep doesn't pull the little cargo trailer so well. Funny that it's legal to do so though. Hmmm.

I would love to take a chance, maybe I should.

Come on up to WA and test the waters for me!

FYI it is LEGAL in Oregon to fill Diesel at ANY pump!

Yeah, diesel. You can also fuel your motorcycle all by yourself like a big boy if you're up to it. But our Wrangler is a gasser. And most of the time I just do it myself anyway, cause, well, I don't want anyone touching my vehicles. Between pulling two trailers and fueling up my own gasser I guess you could say I'm pretty gangsta.
