Michigan Towing Length Changes

Just read this on the MARVAC FB site.

"The Michigan legislature passed, and the Governor signed Senate Bill 35 into law on April 10, 2012. Under Senate Bill 35, the maximum length of a recreational vehicle (RV) that has its own power (motor home), in combination with a trailer, can be 65 feet. However, if the operator of the RV... has a group commercial motor vehicle designation on his or her operator’s or chauffeur’s license, the maximum length can be 75 feet.

The Vehicle Code also specifies that a pickup truck with a towing rate equal to or greater than the weight being towed, equipped with an appropriate fifth wheel assembly, towing attached with a semitrailer designed for recreational living purposes, may tow an additional trailer or semitrailer under certain conditions. Previously, the total length of the pickup truck, semitrailer and additional trailer or semitrailer, and load could not exceed 65 feet. The bill increased the maximum combined length to 75 feet.

The changes are effective immediately.

The above changes can be found in Public Act 80’12 in the Michigan Vehicle Code."

Doesn't affect me but it might some of the members.
