I'm in Texas, all legal here. I doubt that I'll ever get out of state but if I do, I'll sure check into it.

Actually, all states that border on TX allow double towing (I guess some call it triple, but I only see two vehicles being towed). Very common here in ID/UT/NV. But legal in most states.

However, states do put an overall limit on the length, and some states (I believe CA for one) require a special license. So need to know the overall length.

I actually saw a guy pulling (very slowly) out of a FS campground in WY a few years to with a older model F150, with a good size trailer on the back and a good size boat behind the trailer. And I will emphasize, he was pulling VERY SLOWLY. In fact, I would bet I got parked my popup, leveled it, opened it up, and started on a walk with the dog before he made it to Cody about 30 miles down the road.

And not sure if this map is actually up to date.

Just a FYI from a currently extexas person. Your rig looks to me to be too long for Texas, the maximum length of all three vehicles had to be 70 feet or less several years ago when I also pulled doubles. I would check to make sure of the current max length requirements before you get a ticket. The State police used to pull you over and measure the total length of the rig.

Map may be out of date. I have done double tow in NC, here is is regulated by overall length. Don't recall what it is right off hand.

If memory serves. Idaho is 65 feet and I was pushing it with a 23 foot bumper pull with my drift boat behind it. Quad cab K2500. I think I was around 60 feet.

Its very common here in SD. The rule is 75' but there are many that are probably over and I don't think anyone really cares. I've never heard of anyone getting measured.

Yeah, I laugh at the term "triple tow". Don't know why RV'ers (some, not all) call it that.

Do they call towing just their one trailer "double tow?"

Two trailers: double tow. I.e, towing two things.
