I'm retired from NY and I believe the max width is 102" on Interstates and State Highways. However, in the southeast part of the state are "Parkways" which were built during the 30's depression. They are narrow, windy, have low bridges and are (too bad, they're very scenic) NOT meant for large heavy vehicles and are prohibited (no trailers or vehicles over 7000lbs I believe, including "dually's"). Since your final destination may be way off the beaten path, you may use the secondary roads to get there and back out. Just so long as you don't use them as a "thoroughfare" between major highways. Most secondary roads should be posted if there are any restrictions such as weight, height or bridge restrictions. I've towed all over the state with open trailers, enclosed car haulers, and a 44' race hauler and never was hassled by any law enforcement.
Hope this helps and happy trails.
