State Towing Info............

Came across this.

Any thoughts about double trailering info?

Specifically Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minesota, North Dakota and Montana. Will be towing through these states with a double combination. Fifth wheel and then a enclosed utility trailer.

Overall length should be in the 57' range.

57' combined length? Your fifth wheel and cargo trailer must be pretty tiny. My truck and my fifth wheel alone are nearly 50' in length. What are your specs?

You will need a CDL. Don't trust these trailering info. sites, they are not always correct. Check with the States you will be towing in.

Well, part of this is good information, you shouldn't trust the websites, check with the states themselves. The BAD information is that you will need a CDL. You might need a CDL in California, but not in Minnesota, or most of those states he's listing.

I guarantee you that in CA you would need a CDL.

Not doubting your knowledge of CA, but how can it be that if the rig is legal in my state using a class D that I need a class A in some other state that does not have jurisdiction over my license?

Or am I hopelessly naive?

No CDL in Wisconsin unless you are over 26K. Towing doubles in WI, 65' total length if first trailer is a fifthwheel type trailer (also needs brakes). 60' total length if both trailers are ball hitch type trailers (again 1st trailer needs brakes). The 2nd trailer will need brakes if over 3500lbs if I remember right.

I have towed doubles from eastern WI thru MN, SD and WY w/o a CDL or a 2nd look from anyone. Actually in SD they look at us funny cause of our short (65') total length. Seen some pretty long setups out west.

You have to obey the laws of the state you are in. Where your from don't count. Press hard four copies.
