Same with the licensing requirements on the towingworld.com page linked above. Not wholly accurate.

IMO, to the OP for asking - you need to check the state laws for each state. Florida, for instance has a very definitive page saying it's not legal:

Florida statutes are available at: http://www.leg.state.fl.us


65' maximum length

Florida statute limits the overall length of a 'motor home' to 45 feet exclusive of bumpers and safety devices. F.S. 316.515 (15)

Florida statute limits the length of a 'private motor coach' to 50 feet, exclusive of safety devices. 316.515 (9) In combination, the vehicles' overall length cannot exceed 65 feet and only one trailer can be towed. 316.515(3)

Florida statute limits the length of a' travel trailer' to no more than 40 feet. 320.01 (1)(b)1

Florida statutes allow only one trailer to be towed. 316.515(3)

Being Florida has reciprocity with other states, if it is legal in our home state, will they honor a triple?

Can the OP user a add-on carrier if not exceeding the state length limits?
"Take Your Life on the Road with Blue Ox's New SportCarrier™ II"
Towing World Official Website

"engineers designed the SportCarrier II tough to not only carry the load, but also to provide a safe and stable ride, while eliminating the need for triple tow."`

(That all said it is far cheaper to rent a cart at Disney for a week than to go to all this trouble)

Sorry, that's not how reciprocity works. Otherwise those Montana and North Dakota boys could drive 85 everywhere.

Not for this (as far as I'm aware). When it comes to the license type required to haul your camper, the reciprocity works. But, double (aka "triple") towing isn't included.

(Again, as far as I'm aware. I don't do it nor have I ever wanted to. This is all from reading and my interpretation.)

But, I do think the example of speed limits posted above is a good analogy.

Good point. So what are they talking about when they are talking about reciprocity? Ticket info between states?

Reciprocity means that your driver's license is valid in other states. Or your window tinting. Or that if you have a suspended license, reciprocating states will honor the suspension.

But each state still gets to control activities within its borders - speed limits, towing, weight limits, etc.
