How long is too long

I have a 45' Monaco and have been pulling a Jeep with a tow bar. I want to purchase a tandem axel enclosed trailer to haul the Jeep! Now this puts me at 67' two feet over the 65' length law. My friend has been 18' over length for 4 years never been stopped. Any great advice. Kerman

Just put some logos on the trailer that say the name of the trailer followed by 18' or 1800 model. They'll think you're legal.

Years ago, I read an article from a guy that towed an oversized boat (more than 102"). He painted the name of the boat on the back transom in large letters. Made the boat look smaller and never got stopped. Maybe some graphics on the side to make it not look like a large moving wall.

Get a smart car and pull it with an enclosed snowmobile trailer... It will be lighter and burn less fuel, but not so good rock scrambling! Lol!

Really don't think the 2 ft will be an issue, but if it is, what's your back up plan?

I agree that you probably won't get stopped. I see rigs every day that have to be pushing 75' or more. Obvious 40-45' DPs with a trailer that has to be 25-30'. I worry about the other situation however, and that is why I got my CA Class B Non-Commercial license this Spring to drive my 41'er and be legal. What happens when you get T-boned or otherwise slammed and the Highway Patrol figures out that you weren't legal. It's not a situation I want to face, so I try to stay legal. Do I exceed the speed limit, sure. I just want to pick which sword I might have to fall on. GRZLY03
