I mean nice looking dodge crew cab dually two tone 4x4
pulling a 38 or 40 foot double suites painted to match
and on its rear bumper was a genny bouncing all over the place...and behind it was a what looked like a large kia SUV being pulled four down from a 6 or so foot hitch draw bar extension...he had to be 70 feet if he was 2

Triple towing scares the pants off me. What I usually see is a pickup pulling a trailer followed by a boat. I really keep my distance from those rigs.

Wouldn't be surprised to see this a bit down the road......................

Saw a 5er today pulled by a 3/4 ton with a Jeep behind the 5er. It was on the side of the road with the hood up on the 3/4 ton.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

In many states, that length would be illegal.

Bluepill, looks like that one got flipped by wind in a campground.

Maybe next time they'll put the Jeep in gear and put a brick on the gas pedal??

This is how you get around those pesky 'length restrictions'!
