The restrictions are strange. Some states are yes, some are yes with a length limits (65ft for the most part) while some are yes for non residents passing through and some are just no.

You can click on this map by state and check.

I've pulled 5er in IL for over twenty years First thing you do is call ISP and get a solid answer. As it will change from city to city and county. They are changing the laws in IL all the time. Like we used to have to get our trucks inspected once a year than they did away with it, now I buy a new truck 2014 and you best know the weigh restrictions with the new truck I can't use B-truck plates must have D plates and get truck tested twice a year or maybe pay a big fine. As far as I know the total length truck and any trailers 60 ft. I've talked to people who got ticketed for more than one trailer in IL.

Pulling boats or light trailers might be possible behind some 5th wheels and may even be legal in some areas. Unless you have a 2500 or larger vehicle you are at risk for stability and stopping and I don't know of a trailer that is designed to pull a thing behind it legally.

I have done it myself, I have a camera in the rear window of the TT so I can see the boat back there. Pulls really well.

My 4500# boat is hooked to the back of my 5er 99% of the time.
