Lets get a closer look at that:



That is a bolt on hitch to the TT rear bumper pulling a 5x8 trailer with an electric golf cart on it. I initially walked over to check out his hitch setup, but after seeing that decided not to use any of his design ideas
So that's what those new breakaway hitches look like!

I think this site is in error for California they allow triple towing with a CDL restricted license. My dad did it for many years until he moved to Oregon.
last test I took still had it in their booklet.

Notice (if that's actually the "in tow position") that the golf cart is back behind the axel. Bet that was a amusing rig to watch while in motion....watch from FAR away.

And he's obviously over length for that camp site.

I've never actually observed anyone backing what I call "double towing". That's gotta be a witch to maneuver.

LA allows this sort of towing, and I see the "double tow" UPS trucks hauling down the interstate almost daily.

Did see one of these:


on an interstate overpass about 30 miles west of us. I'd be claustrophobic under there! :eep:

Why do some people think this guy has to back into a spot with the trailer still hitched to the RV?

He probably hooks the trailer to the RV after the RV is hooked to the TV and vice versa if he has to back into a spot.

The trailer is probably light enough to handle by hand and the cycle is probably loaded after the trailer is hooked and vice versa before the trailer is unhooked.

Don't make it harder than it has to be.

You are exactly right....

My big question would be why he is connected to power and not water?
