Most states allow double towing from either a gooseneck or 5th wheel hitch. Most states have a 65ft limit Colorado is 70ft. I just googled state trailer towing laws and found a state by state listing. I was actually 67 ft long...two foot over in three of the states I drove through on my trip. The highway patrolman never bothered me though.

http://www.towingworld.com/articles/TowingLaws.htm ... I was thinking it was only total length of trailer not counting tow vehicle, but it appears it's both.

Banks was amazing. Water-temp at 67'. Photo attached. Yes--this is a thread-jack and should be in the glass-water thread.

What the BIG truck pulling the lil boat? Or the Price Tag on the truck? LOL I looked at one last month when I bought the OL's Limited Expedition. 65K they told me on a 3/4 ton Lariat..... That's a 1 ton! WOW

Nice truck Hammer. Now you need to get a new 25 to even out the rig.

Nice rig. No worries with that as your tow vehicle.

I would be worried that I wouldn't feel the boat and forget it's back there.
