tow vehicle and rv length

My total length is 65 ft,however the state law says 60ft max for combined vehicle,so my question is what happens when one gets pulled over for being over the length of 60 ft.Does or is there and asterik that allows you to go over the legal limit set by the state? I talked with a few other rv ers and they know they are over the limit,but have not been bothered.

I didn't know there WAS a length limit for a TV/RV combo. I say if you get pulled over, plead negligence.

What state do you live in?

Normally I don't comment on "Apple Word Suggestions" but this one had me in stitches.

I live in Maryland,however most states have a limit according the site.I was asking because I was thinking about getting a golf cart and adding and extension to my rv.While inquiring about the extension,I started looking at the state laws and thought wow according to MAryland dmv,I am already over the legal length. So what if Barney sheriff decides, I look to long and pulls me over.

Wow, I had no idea some states were at 60', and DC and Maryland at 55'.

Trailer Life Directory

So much for us recommending long wheelbased TVs for long trailers.

Plead negligence.

Just looked, Nebraska is 65 for truck and trailer. It says that refrigeration units are not included in overall length.....so if you make your extension for the golf cart look like a fridge unit you will be fine!

According to the law ignorance is not an excuse. More than likely IF you were stopped, you would be cited, parked and not allowed to move it until you A got an oversized permit, or B made the combination under the legal limit.
