Of course it's legal. Now, depending on the total length, there might be a question there but, based on what I see in the pic, I doubt seriously that any LEO would mess with them. We've seen lots of large families doing exactly that. It makes for good accommodations if you're a large family without being to confined while camping.

I know folks that tow a TT as a hobby room.

That's a lot to spend on the MIL. Do you really want to encourage her to tag along? I don't think so.

No safety chains or cables.

I wish my mother and father in law were still alive to come along with us.

I recently ask my sons(14,16) if they would like their 'own' accommodations when we arrived at a park or campground for the night - they said 'of course'! - I said a little bunk house trailer we could tow behind the diesel pusher motor coach would work well for them - we'd just have to consider how to tow the 'toad' along, too!

BTW, I wonder how parks and campgrounds would consider this setup - a single family unit, or two separate sleeping units ; hmmmmmmm....

That appears to be a Georgetown gasser and if so it will be on a Ford F53 chassis. There is no way that combination can be under the GCVWR, which I believe is 30,000 pounds MAX. Therefore, even IF it is "legal" in length (which I doubt it is) the lawyers are going to have a field day when an accident happens. I'm betting the owner's insurance company does not know how much he is towing.

We can only hope he has upgraded the chassis frame extension and hitch to support the weight of that "bumper pull" type trailer.

Me too. I miss both of them and they would love the RV.

Well Sir,
I didn't bother scrutinizing the package. I only saw a M/H and a travel trailer. We've seen it many, many times while traveling. Mostly large families or business's etc. I have no idea what the logistics are in that picture. There's two choices there. Either he's legal and has it all under control or, he's not and just running down the road happy-go-lucky without worries.

I've seen this very setup (and even took a video) a few years ago on I-95 in Connecticut. I'd have to assume s/he had a doubles endorsement on their license...
