maybe you can clear something up for me, today on the turnpike I saw an RV pulling a jeep, that also had a boat trailer connected to the jeep, so this would be the same as a tripple vehicle, although you dont have to have a CDL to drive an RV is it legal to pull 2 vehicles behing the RV....thanks

Ive seen that before myself and wondered the same thing. I cant imagine what a PITA it must be to try andback something like that up.

Nope its not legal, a straight truck and its trailer can only be a certain lenght and an RV with two trailer exceeds the max, we had a trooper in court about a week ago that had written a guy from New York and the trooper was right.

I guess if you were by yourself and needed to move 3 vehicles over a distance you could take the chance, I would also hate to back it up, but you guess what the turnpike tolls would be 3 axles on the rv- plus 2 on the jeep- plus 2 on the boat trailer, thats one more axle that most tractor trailers

Could get expensive if caught, might be cheaper to have a driver for the jeep, I actually saw one of these rigs on I-75 the other day it was a pro fishing team with about 5 guys in a Prevost motor home, must have been 100 feet long.
