When the factory says no double tow in "my" mind that means if you do it, it's not right or safe.

Warranty is likely only one year, so I wouldn't see it as losing much. Any reputable hitch shop should be able to get you setup to tow the commander behind the fifth

Turbs, In this case PT is stating that it would have to be a PT or Lippert certified welder which infers that it can be done according to the factory. Its is common practice within reason in Louisiana and I have yet to come across any issues with a properly installed hitch. To say it is unsafe and not allowed isnt a fair statement.

Its kinda like the "weight police" chasing Old Coot around this forum and he runs circles around them.

I run from New Jersey to Florida running Interstate highways as much as possible. Never had an issue or even a second look from any law enforcement. I'm under the max length from my home portal and it is completely safe. It's triple trailer towing that is illegal now around here. For all those that get confused, double towing is 2 trailers and triple towing is 3 trailers.

I used to tandem tow with no issues, had a bolt in custom hitch which allowed the frame to gently flex when turning and had zero issues....all was good

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe so the wife and him can both have a vehicle.
