My former truck shop is in upstate NY in a popular recreation area. Each summer season the shop has a half dozen or so toad and boat "guests" in the secure storage lot waiting for the owners to return for them after the police made them drop the last unit of a double. The most common excuse is, "It's legal in my state...". There's one very nice boat that's been on the lot for three years now after being dropped, and the owner pays the storage fee every month like clock work.

Triple towing are not allowed in those two states for recreational vehicles. It's called triple towing (as it relates to RV's) based on how many items are in that attached group, not how many items are being towed. There are separate rules for commercial DOT trucking that are different for private RV's regardless what they look like or can be considered.


It's doubles. You tow a trailer and you're just towing. That one trailer isn't a double, it's just a trailer. You add a boat behind it and you're towing double.

Those FedEx rigs you see in some states with a tractor and three trailers are triples, not quadruples.

Some states dont allow doubles towing period and most of them are on the East cost. Every state that allow them has their own licence requirments, some require a special licence and other dont. The licence required in your state is good in all the other states that allow doubles towing. You just have to pay attention to the length as each state has its own requirement you have to abide by
