May not be legal in your state. A question best asked of law enforcement in your area. Then you would need to check regulations in any state you plan to travel through.
Also, comes down to the load ratings of your coach and tow bars.

Good advice from Skip, depends on what States you plan to visit. Some, I believe have total length limits, others limit to commercially licensed trucks. Sort of a crapshoot...

Perhaps an alternative is a flat bed trailer capable of handling the Jeep and the M/C? See that set up frequently out here on the left coast.

FWIW, my brother towed a pickup, and a small ATV trailer, behind his MH. In his home state (Nevada) that was okay. He found otherwise in a couple of other States.

Good luck!

The states that allow doubles usually state that the first connection must be a fifth wheel - you can't have two ball hitches. I don't know whether they consider a typical tow bar, such as Blue Ox, as a ball hitch or not - that would have to be addressed by your state's DOT I suspect. Also, most states that DO allow doubles require the driver to have a commercial license.

Check into a motor cycle lift hitch that will attach to rear of the MH or the toad. You will have to pay close attention to max Hitch weight also.

I would think you "can", in the right places and such. But I would not.

It is enough to stop with a toad.
A toad with a wagging tail? No thanks.

There is another way to tow both - Tandem Tow Dolly
on there is also a lift for the bike if you wanted to tow the Jeep 4 down that is if it can be towed 4 down.
