It is still not legal in NC........ I see it every now and then but a large fine risk.

I see it once in awhile. Saw it two weeks ago at Ocean Lakes. Wish we could but I know the first time I try it, I'd get busted.

I am just thinking of getting into a fuel stop with that...nope, not towing two things. While traveling, we never know where the next fuel stop might be, or more importantly, how easy it is going to be to get in and out because of the layout or congestion.

Thanks, but I'll just rent a boat or buggy when I get where I am going, but more power to you sir!

And the winning answer for max length in Texas is....(drum roll)...65'

I'll eventually triple tow but for me my biggest fear is driving into a spot that I can't get out of or must back out of. Has happened a couple of times towing a 5th wheel and that was gnarly enough.

Towing two trailers is tough enough... but towing three trailers! Wow!

Ok, if someone double tows, will a brake controller work for two tow vehicles? Just curious, I am never going to try it.

f5moab ... many boat trailers have hyd surge brakes, so no controller required. I double tow a SeaDo squirt boat behind my Silverback. It's a fairly common practice here west of the Mississippi. Driving 2 vehicles to the lake is not an option appealing to me.

I sometimes double tow a single waverunner behind a 23' overall travel trailer with a Chrysler Aspen. It doesn't effect handling or even MPG any over just the camper. I can easily unhook and move the waverunner around by hand, it's not a really big one. I'm about 50' overall and pulling 7000 pounds. I did add a camera back there so I can see if something is wrong.

I pull trailers behind my 5th wheel with no trouble. Don't even know there is a trailer behind the RV, doesn't tow any different.
The trailer behind the RV tracks with the RV, because the RV has a large tail swing.

In Texas the law states only a double trailer can be pulled behind a 5th wheel/gooseneck, no bumper pull to bumper pull. Max length 65'
