don't know where you are going, but I have seen triple towers stopped. However, I think they were stopped because triple towing wasn't allowed.

IMHO they are not checking them enough… not only for length but many without brakes to…

As this becomes more common it will attract more attention…

one was cited and parked at a I 75 the rest area in FL, while he had to haul his utility and 5er trailers to the CG separately from there…
When he left the CG he had them both hooked up…

Unless the LEO is really bored the chances of being stopped a foot or two long isn't very likely. If you are in one of the many states that do not allow triple towing the chances of being stopped are close to 100%. Then length is irrelevant. You won't get very far into my state (Washington) with a triple tow before you are stopped and made to disconnect the extra tow right there along side the road. Oregon is the same.

Really depends on where you are towing.....Our neighbor was stopped in CA and measured. He was 18" over and it cost him $360+. The CHP was ticked off because she could NOT cite him for the license.
