Towing two trailers (triple towing)

In Oklahoma it legal to "triple tow". Tow two bumper pull trailers. I'm looking into getting a real small 14' camper that weighs 2000lbs. My rig and trailer for it weigh a total of about 3600lbs (the total being only 1/2 the weight of what my truck is actually capable of). I was thinking of getting a ball put on my rig trailer to pull both the rig and the travel trailer once a month. Reason being is my wife and I also camp alot so there will be times I wont have my rig with me just the travel trailer. I've seen two people doing this.
Has anyone done this and whats your take?
thanks,

NO ! FIRST TRAILER HAS TO BE FIFTH WHEEL OR GOOSENECK , second has to be bumper pull. both with brakes , 2 seperate brake boxes. you can not pull tripples without a cdl.
I deal with it everyday and can pull tripples but if I'm on vacation or going to play the last thing I want running my weekend is the train behind me.
more trouble than it's worth...........ever !

Ive contacted the highway patrol and was told triple towing(or double-one truck two trailers) is legal in Oklahoma with two bumper pulls, along with websites such as http://rv-roadtrips.thefuntimesguide...ple_towing.php
The regulation is it has to be a total under 65 feet.

you better check DOT, I'm not arguing only telling you what I have dealt with for 20 + years daily. you will be pulled over and fines giving. Joe just got hung out to dry going to zukikrawel and should not have been. got him for no cdl and over weight, there was no reason for him to have a cdl because he was not for hire but it has changed now.

there is a cdl that you have to have to pull doubles (you are not pulling tripples) 2 trailers is doubles and is against DOT in bumper hitch configuration.
try it if you want , not only is 2 bumper hitches illegal but very unsafe , one starts to and you are . don't even think about towing this mess with a 1/2 ton truck, that is an accident waiting to happen.

Good info here. I do not know if its legal here in CO or not, but I see double bumper trailer pulling all the time here going up and down interstate and state highways daily. Usually its a truck,camper then a boat, or a truck,flat bed trailer then boat. Heck I even see our southern border semi-illegals doing double flat towing!!!! Yes thats right, usually its an overloaded mini van towing two cars, both on tow bars, not dolly's.

I thought it had to be under a certian total weight, axle limit or total length before a CDl was needed?

And you still have to be under the total length.

Like this in Kansas too. My brother owns a trailer business here in Wichita and is dealing with this all the time. I use to work for him all the time. He Hauled a something for personal use with his personal rig and because it was a long rig got pulled over and held for no CDL. He contracted all his trailer hauling. Oklahoma will bust your but before anyone will. He has a CDL now, does a lot of his own hauling now that he went thru the trouble.

Better do a deeper search then a phone call or website. Some of them fines are pretty big!!!!

Never even thought about the obvious problem. My numbers are probably wrong but dad feel free to tell me BS or correct me here.

A 2 inch ball is only rated for 5000lbs (?) and the 2 5/16 is only rated for how much? doesn't matter as most trailers, whether or not they should have that size don't. You see 2 inch balls rated for more but it was my understanding that 5000 was the dot limit. And no matter how you load it, the total weight is on that 1st ball. Which is why they say gooseneck or 5th wheel. They have limits well in excess of regular ball hitches, my small one is 15,000 i think.

I talked to a guy from AZ last July as he was loading his lifted Rubicon into his toy hauler, and it was a big toy hauler I said damn that thing must weigh a ton and he said 8 of them to be exact. 16,000lbs with the Jeep in it then I walked on by and it was a bumper pull

I wouldn't own a bumper pull that heavy. Not trying to trash anyone on here. Just saying what i have heard and whether or not it is legal, i wouldn't do it.

There are five different hitch classes, ranging from 1 to 5. Class I hitches can be used to fasten a gross trailer weight (GTW) of 2,000 lbs and a max tongue weight of 200 lbs. Class II hitches will fasten up to 3,500 lbs and handle 300 lbs of tongue weight. Class II hitches will fasten up to 5,000 lbs of trailer weight and 500 lbs of tongue weight.

Classes IV and V are considered to be heavy duty trailer hitches. A class IV hitch will handle up to 5 tons of trailer weight and a trailer tongue of 1,000 lbs. Class V hitches accommodate weights over 5 tons and some gooseneck hitches can haul up to 30,000 pounds.

your on the right track, they have gotten nuts with the tow laws and no two state agencies read the page the same way. D.O.T. has their own rule book and no one else has a clue.
we have people getting busted everyday , you do not want to pay wrecker bills and impound fees on 3 pcs. of equipment.
I have been in the trailer business over 20 years and have to deal with this crap daily. I thought when Itsmejoe got busted we could get him out of it because he was "not for hire" we all learned a new lesson on that deal. laws and regulations have changed .

I know several people here in SoCal who tow exactly like this; a pickup, a travel trailer and a toy trailer, either a flatbed or boat trailer. But they ALL have Class A CDL's and all tow a 5th wheel pulling a bumper pull. Actually, one of the guys can back-up that combo around a corner to exactly where he wants. Damn good driver.

joe's issues were due to how the trailer was registered, as it was for private use the fine was for the registration not a wheight or length violation.

I've seen 2 wreaks with a pickup towing a camp trailer and a boat. Not a pretty sight. I did see one once that started ping and I got the hell away before he collected me.
It just doesn't seem very safe unless maybe setup and driven by a professional which we all are. LOL
