Here, double towing is allowed as long as the trailer attached to the TV has dual axles. Does not matter if it is TT or 5ver. Still 65ft limit though. Seems this law varies alot so making sure your are well aware of your local laws and the laws of places you would travel with such a rig.

You just have to be legal in you're home state where the vehicle and trailers are registered this is covered under the Geneva Convention Treaties on Traffic, Florida just found out about that when they tried to introduce changes covering visitors licences.

Is this just recreational vehicles that fall under this statute?

You are going to research OK law. In most states that allow tandem, the first trailer must 5th wheel or gooseneck.

After taking a good look at the bumper. I thinking about replacing the whole bumper. Having some plates burned out to fit on both sides of the frame. Around two foot back into the trailer. Then replacing a new bumper back on the support that I put on the trailer.

i found the pic. it has plates on each end of the 4" square tubing. then bolted to the frame. the inside of the trailer's I-Beam helped to hold it in there, BUT the bolts did all of the work.

Actually....As I was informed by an RV dealer and triple-checked with the state of Michigan, The maximum double-tow length (5th wheel) for Michigan was raised to 75 feet as of 2013...

Here's mine. No problems pulling a flat bottom behind the TT here in Arkansas. And I agree, bolt, dont weld. Allows some movement, welding would be to rigid and cause cracks.

I am generally one if those guys that sides with double towing. My fear for you is the tow vehicle you are using. If you notice in most pictures you're seeing 3/4 or 1 ton diesels towing doubles. I recommend this since you're going to have a lot more trailer than tow vehicle. I have the last dodge that was posted by the co op tanks with the jet ski on the end... I haven't ever felt that the trailer was going to toss me around with the truck I have. That would be my only concern in your case with a jeep but it may not be a concern of yours. Just wanted to make that point.

Good luck...
