Nope, you have to comply with each states laws on equipment unlike those on drivers licenses and insurance. Out here you will be forced to unhook where you are and come back to pick up the load with a legal tow.
Almost all sites that purport to show towing laws are wrong.

My kind of guy!

We somehow always ended up with triples. Towed a boat for years, and towed the Jeep we have now behind a 5er.

CO is 70 ft - allows triples, but I believe the first connection has to be a 5th wheel and the second can be a ball. Been a while since I looked.

I did this and not a single LEO even gave me a look. Towed across Missouri, Kansas to Colorado and back. The toad had brakes and the MH had both 4xdisc brakes and exhaust brakes. Yea, I was a bit long @ 72', but had no issues. On this trip I have a DRW truck, 5th, and a 6x10 trailer behind the 5th. Again, not a single look from anyone.

A tow vehicle pulling two trailers or two vehicles is a double tow or truck/trailer/trailer as in the pictures.

The Towing World chart mistakingly refers to a three vehicle combination as a triple tow.

Towing doubles is a daily event in this part of the country where its legal to do so.

Right now its common to see a rv triple tow ...... one ton DRW pulling a 5th wheel trailer/ski boat trailer and a PWC trailer.

Haven't you given up on trying to correct the world about "triple tow" vs "double tow" yet

Who friggen cares!! RVers have been calling it triple tow since I was 3 yo, and suddenly truckers try to make things sound the way they do it. It's like the Class A vs Type A discussion - who cares if everyone understands what you mean ..................Towing World correctly used that term because it is a common term for towing two trailers in an RV world.

Enough already.

In Florida, 65' for non commercial vehicle combinations, there is only one trailing unit allowed.

Don't get your panties in a wad. If you don't like my message just go on down the road .... take a deep breath and relax.

Rvers haven't been calling it a triple tow very long...just since Towing World came out with with their chart a few years back and opinions expressed by a few new folks to the towing world on this and other rv websites.
