I tow a fifth wheel RV now, and I'm working on getting a SoloSkiff. It'll be too heavy to load on the rack over the cab on my pickup without help, so I put together a trailer for it. As much as I hate the idea, I was going to have to tow tandem. I checked the Texas Transportation Code and I would be well within the length limit. I see enough tandem rigs on the road that I just assumed that it's legal everywhere.....
I was discussing it with another RVer who told me that Florida doesn't permit tandem towing. I checked, and I found that a whole lot of states prohibit it. Although there are other states prohibiting it, I noticed that from Alabama east to Florida, then up the east coast to Maine, all of the coastal states prohibit it. You would be wise to check it out before towing a tandem rig; it could get mighty expensive if a trooper makes you drop the rear rig and pay someone to haul it back home for you.
