Correct. Double trailer are legel in every state. Most of the western states north and south do not have any problem with this . Height goes up to 14 foot in TX along with length on all units. Same from Oka, west on I-40/20/10 and across I-80 and 90 tripples are legal. TX still won't allow triples so I -40 is limited to Az and NM only along with Calif. Triple units are mostly allowed on interstates for bigger rigs. Their lenght top 140 foot and are allowed to pull three 48 foot trailer on I-80/90 Those are Pups there and that is what we call them. They are only 28 foot each. All three are only single axle in the rear. Larger units have twins on the tandom of ever trailer.
Different world out here guys. You might be suprised at how you recieve something when you buy it. Seen lots of three ,,truck, camper, boat set ups rolling. He was telling the truth. As much as I use Fed-ex I wanted a photo of my money at work. LOL

Liveaboard thats not accurate. In many N.E. states, multiple trailers are not legal. Some of them tolerate it on the interstates but dont get off on the secondary roads.

Western states north and south of those. About mid country west. No nothing is legal east of IL up north on triples.
Draw a line from IL to TX and everything west of there is legal. By western states and north and south I was talking about those.
Double pups or the 28 twin units are legal in all 48

I think even those are only legal on the interstates or major highways in some states. PA comes to mind, I believe you have to drop one before hitting the secondary roads. I may be wrong on that its been awile and that may only be certain areas. I know there was something addressing them in PA but I cant remember what it was exactly.

Pups are 102 wide. Pa is limited on a lot of roads even to the 53/102's
The more mountains and curves you have the more restrictions.
You can get off the turnpike and run down from Breezewood into MD. Also they can come across Cumberland gap. Sorry on the spelling.
Lot more roads than you would think but no they can't run where single 53's can on a lot of roads.
Your correct.

Thanks nauti, we tow a 29 Everglades, 34ft Airstream and the hunting buggy. Could easily be done with 3/4 ton, just like the look and the comfort of towing with the DRW.

one more..
04' F250 gasser with the buggy, sorry for the bad angle.
8" Procomp on 38" Toyos


We get Christmas cards from the Saudis
