Update on our earlier post, we arrived in Fl yesterday, left Qc Canada Tuesday afternoon after picking up the U-Haul, learned on second day that the wheel pans swivel, so removed the ignition key and locked the car, great set up. Also, the U Haul did not have brakes. Quite easy to keep between the lines with rearview camera on the coach, happy rv'g, we'll be looking for a used dolly over the winter.

Went to 4 down with a 4 wheel drive JEEP . HAPPY MOTORING.
And I have found those sites that list that are usually NOT accurate for at least CA and WA, sometime OR too. In those three states a motorized vehicle towing another motorized vehicle four down is considered a "combination" vehicle and then the braking requirement changes to a performance requirement. Stop from XX mph in XX feet and you don't need supplemental braking.
