If you are a first responder, you gotta know that the belts really do reduce risk of injury and death, right?

It was a question... Do we all abide by it? No... I sure try to... and it also depends on the scenario whether I wear a belt! It is off topic and I apologize but I feel wearing a belt for my day to day driving in town to work, less than 2 miles to work and not over 25mph I feel more safe being un restrained and When I hit the highway or if I have a trailer in tow you better believe that me and my occupants are buckled in! Being a first responder/emt/firefighter I have seen it first hand this is what I feel safe with!

I don't know how far afield you plan to travel, but, as far as I know, most states on the east coast don't allow it. IIRC, Maryland does and I know for a fact PA does not.

This is the ONLY one I've seen that I would trust, except for the REALLY expensive fivers that were custom built for towing.
He spent four years getting it right and had an engineer design the frame reinforcements, which were extensive. It's not a car, but its a heavy double-decker trailer with quads, etc.

x'2 not many states allow it, You can beef up any frame, but then you own it. Lets say that something happened to your frame even if you could prove that it was LCI production problem. You be out and on your own.

this came on my 2012 right from the factory, the 2013`s do not have this option.
Us MI folks are allowed to tow double, I might take my quads up north this summer behind it

Actually, Maryland does all to triple tow... You are correct that PA does not...

I would say there are more states that do allow it than don't even... there are a handful of them that require the front trailer to be a fifth wheel.

I have done it for many years in the past with our old trailer. I believe it's perfectly safe if you are mindful of total weight and total length. We had a 27 ft. fifth and towed a 17 ft. lund boat with surge brakes. Different jurisdictions have different rules, here in Manitoba it can only be done behind a fifth and total length can not exceed 75 ft. Of course you need to know that the trailer frame is capable of the additional stresses. It seems that if you live in flat country it's ok, mountain or hilly terrain definitely not! Also you have to feel comfortable doing it and it might require different license requirements. To each his own. Be safe and happy RV'ing.

I don't mean to stupid here but really do not know.

It is referred to as many different things actually... Either is correct as long as we all know what each other are referring too!
