thanks for the link, but evidently there have been some changes since that site was put up. i contacted WV state police and it IS legal here but up to 65 feet length not the 55 quoted on site, and S Carolina and N carolina state police said it was NOT allowed and that site said it was legal in SC. I just wonder if anyone actually has problems pulling thru these states on the interstate?
You may want to clarify your question when posing it to the authorities. Your topic heading stated travel trailer and motor cycle trailer which is not allowed in any state to my knowledge (two pull trailers in tandem). Your first post clarified and stated fifth wheel and pull trailer which is allowed in most states if certain criteria is met.
In Ca. (sorry not familiar with your state laws) you can only pull "doubles" (truck, fifth wheel, pull trailer) if you have a Class A (Commercial) license. Triple towing (truck, fifth wheel, trailer, trailer) is not allowed.
You must also comply with lighting requirements (brake / tail lights/ turn signals), length requirements (65'), and trailer brake requirements as applicable.
Most states comply with federal commercial laws to maintain the flow of federal highway money. However, some states will change or add laws (i.e. as they pertain to non-commercial vehicles like RVs).
Research driver's license requirements for your state and determine if a Class A or B license will allow you to pull doubles. Also, check with DMV to see if there is an RV license that will allow doubles.
If the Class A allows this in your state (it should) then research the requirements for pulling two trailers. (Example: Ca. will not allow two pull trailers to be towed in tandem).
There probably is an exemption that the law enforcement folks were either not aware of or didn't think you would want to go to that much trouble to obtain. That or they may have been a misperception to your question posed.
Just my $.02
