Directly from MSHP CMV enforcement St. Louis office. There is no requirement that states that the first trailer in tow has to be a fifth wheel. Only length and height requirements apply to non-commercial (recreational) vehicles.

Why in the he!! would I back the whole thing down the ramp? Think that maybe I'd un hook the camper first and set up camp?

And if in a pinch I had to back up I can push/pull the jet ski by hand... Some people and their ignorance really gets to me... you go ahead and laugh and wish you had the engineering capabilities Hermit... I'm willing to bet you wouldn't even be able to figure how to wire a 4 pin connector to the back of the camper let alone install the hitch and be capable of pulling it...

OC owes me a percentage of his popcorn sales.

yup... definitely 29...

I don't take kindly to being mocked... Turbs had his words as he disagreed with what I had been told and was believing... Which I still thank him for being persistent as I am VERY thick headed...

And at this point I will take the tip from OC about not arguing...
