WTH?

Is that even legal? Does someone really tow like that?

Well, if it's not, I'm sure a LEO will point it out to them.

Yes, Triple Towing is legal in some states. I'm confident that I would not want to tow like that. Some things to note with a triple-tow is the laws of the state you want to tow through (do they allow it), as well as the max length laws of the state.

Here are some links that offer more comments and insight

RV Triple Towing Laws, Pros and Cons

Funny ... seems like the photo you included above can be found in quite a few web articles on triple towing

What state? Was it all hooked to the MH? I don't see a problem for a competent driver.

No way is that legal. 2 hitches there. I doub't if that jeep/hummer is even hooked to the coach.
How would you ever turn a corner? Brakes? Even is this was legit, it wouldn't last long on any road without getting stopped. Exceeds overall length also. That's way over 65 feet.
Geeze!

Length limits vary by state. If it's legal in the state where the TV is registered, it is usually allowed to pass thru other states with shorter limits or no double tow law.

I've seen it with 5th wheels, but never a toad with a trailer.

That picture was at the bottom of the irv2 forums under "You may also like"

In most states there is a combined max length about 65 feet. This would be over 65 feet with the bus, van and trailer.

I wouldn't count on that though. States generally reciprocate on licensing but not on actual rules of the road.

There are essentially no maximum length restrictions on interstate highways. Once off the interstate highway, the vehicle can be broken down to Class A and Hummer towing cargo trailer. Doesn't seem like a problem to me if there are two licensed drivers to drive each vehicle.
