Pulling Toad with small trailer

I'd like to pull my Wrangler with a lightweight (300 lb) motorcycle trailer. I don't remember seeing it before but I see 5th wheels pulling trailers often.
I think I could do it safely but, not sure of the legality or if a toad is even considered a trailer according to the law.
Any thoughts on this?

Different states have different laws. You have to remember, that while the other states recognize your drivers license, you have to obey the speed and towing laws in the state that you are traveling through. So while you may be legal in one state, the next one you may not be legal.

There is a tow dolly made that has a loading platform on the front for a scooter.http://www.cruiserlift.com/towdolly.html

I'd suggest you go with the dolly with the platform. A slight wiggle in the RV will be magnified by the length of the RV's overhang from rear axle to the hitch, then transfered through the toad, then into the 'light' trailer behind. That thing will be hopping side-to-side by the time the forces get transfered back to it!
