If you have a copy of your state rules to show a officer most will let you go. Thats why we have recoriptal laws no state can force you to make your truck fit there laws and expect tourist from out of state to go there.

Unless you get stopped for speeding or some other violation, nobody will know what license you have.

There are also certifications that may be needed. Hazmat, air brakes, doubles, triples, etc.

Wisconsin also requires an annual fee that was around $40.00 if you are a resident. There is no CDL requirement. They were pushing for a 70' length a couple years back but don't know that it made it through the legislature. For brakes on the second trailer if you need them a surge brake setup simplifies the issue.

Here's the Wisconsin Statute on towing double. no mention of CDL requirement.

348.27 (7m )
(7m ) The department may issue an annual or consecutive month permit for the movement of a 3-vehicle combination consisting of a towing vehicle and, in order by weight, with the lighter of the towed vehicles as the 3rd vehicle in the 3-vehicle combination unless not structurally possible, a recreational vehicle or camping trailer, and a trailer for a personal recreational vehicle, if the overall length of the combination of vehicles does not exceed 60 feet or, if the 2nd vehicle in the 3-vehicle combination is equipped with brakes adequate to control the movement of and to stop and hold it, does not exceed 65 feet, and the towed vehicles are for the use of the operator of the towing vehicle. A permit under this subsection may be issued only by the department, regardless of the highways to be used. The department may designate the routes that may be used by the permittee. The fee for an annual permit under this subsection is $40. The fee for a consecutive month permit under this subsection shall be determined in the manner provided in s. 348.25 (8) (bm), except that the $40 fee for an annual permit under this subsection shall be used in the computation. No 3-vehicle combination may operate under this paragraph if highway or weather conditions include heavy snow, freezing rain, icy roads, high winds, limited visibility, or upon a highway that is closed or partially closed by the department due to highway conditions.

Chapter 348 of the Wisconsin statutes pertains to size, weight and load. Under chapter 341 which deals with drivers licensing, there is a specific exemption for RV's in the CDL section. I'm not sure which statute covers the reciprocity or if there is even a statute and not just some other trans order or other agreement. I'll research that and see what I come up with.

The Wisconsin stautes do not state a residency requirement. I know our officers honor some other odd out of state statutes for instance some states including Minnesota allow their school buses to tow trailers and Wisconsin does not. We see out of state buses pulling trailers all the time and it's not an issue because we know their states allow it.

I also know quite a few troopers and would be shocked to see any of them harassing someone with an RV unless the Rv did something exceptional to attract attention. Most of the time our Troopers are working speeders and criminal interdiction.

As stated earlier by soemone else, I would carry a copy of your state statute in your vehicle in the evnt you are stopped so you can explain your position in the event a nice officer has an occasion to stop you.
