Just purchased a 43ft. Travel Supreme and need some feedback if you have some solid evidence about towing lengths. I have the list for maximum lengths for each state, however I've had more than one person indicate that regardless of what state you visit...the towing restrictions are based on the state your motorhome is Registered in. In my case, that would be Montana...so, 75ft is the maximum towing length for motorhome and trailer...but can anyone else validate this or know of a legal link?
I go to CA often and they max at 65ft, so would I be subjected to that minimum if I have Montana plates? Or, can I pull up to 75ft in CA "legally"
I've read postings about people have CHP's force them to drop the trailer and get it picked up with another shorter vehicle. That does not mean the CHP is correct perse, but he is wearing the badge at that moment and unless I can pull some legal docs that carry some weight to back him/her down, I am afraid I would experience the same fate.
I get the whole perspective that speed limits must be followed for the state you're driving in...so my gut tells me trailer length works the same way as much as I would like to hear it does not. So anyone have some evidence?
Thanks in advance to anyone chiming in...I always get good input and ideas from IRV2
