On a trip from Greensbro NC to New Orleans area yesterday we saw this:
A mini van towing 2 cars, one with a hitch and one with a dolly. No apparent auxiliary braking other than maybe surge on dolly. This was in Georgia near the Flying J in Carnesville.
Several people have told me this is legal in Georgia, South Carolina, Texas and other states.
I don’t see how this could be legal. The max tow on the minivan in the photo is probably less than 4,000 pounds. The two vehicles I I tow probably weigh 8,000 - 9,000 pounds total with hitches and dolly.
While at the Flying J, four of these combinations were in line to get gas. One of the tow cars had been in a wreck and had the crumpled hood wired down to stay shut. One of the combinations was dragging metal on the road hanging off one of the wrecked toads.
These four setups were blocking several of the pumps and one was had to detach and drop the two toads in the pump bay for some reason.
While all this was going on a State Trooper pulled in to the parking lot near a local Sheriff’s car. Neither of them paid any attention to the circus. Later while on the road the combination pictured passed me doing about 70 mph. At least he wasn’t speeding. No way he could have stopped that mess in a hard break situation.
Another day in the life of RVing.
