I was just passed by a large DP towing a large SUV that in turn was towing a utility trailer with a golf cart in it. Iv been RVing over 50 years and this is a first. Im wondering if this is legal, it was on I40 going east in TN.

Double towing is legal in some states.

Everything is legal till you get caught.

Perfectly legal in some states.

If it's illegal, the only difference between getting away with it and getting caught are the consequences. Legality remains either way.

Many States allow triple towing, with some restrictions.

Have you ever seen a semi pulling two trailers? Otherwise need to know the length.

In calif, you can tow a trailer behind a fifth wheelI as it is an extension of the truck. I think you need a class a license. I did see a guy doing the same as you saw and I figured he would not get far but I noticed his Texas plates and figured he is lucky.

Since MOST states require the towed vehicle to have supplemental brake systems, I would be interested to see HOW and IF those triple tows have such a system. While it "may" be legal, it is not a good safe practice. Doug
