There's an app for that, lol. Seriously, check out state lines app. It has all the state retirements including max lengths, max tow, triple tow, etc.

When we speak of the legalities of towing double on the Interstates, I believe we need to be careful to differentiate between commercial loads (regulated by FMCSA) and non-commercial loads (such as our RVs in private use). The Federal government has regulatory authority over interstate commerce, but non-commercial vehicles are a different bag of worms. Federal influence on state non-commercial vehicle statutes comes through NHTSA, and their only real enforcement mechanism is the ability to withhold Federal transportation funding from the states (ref. helmet laws, seat belt laws, .08% blood alcohol DUI threshold, etc.) I don't know that NHTSA has addressed towing double for non-commercial vehicles; I believe that's still within each state's jurisdiction.
