Cool Double Towing

I know in Georgia you cannot legally tow behind non fifth wheel trailers. What you really need to be concerned with more than law enforcement is your insurance company. Many insurers will not cover non commercial motor vehicles double towing. If you get in an accident and cause injuries and your insurer decides not to cover you that could be much worse than a ticket for illegal towing.

I have read some stories on some other sporting forums from Florida and Georgia of State Troopers stopping and requiring the unhitching of the second trailer. Making you have to pull and unhitch the first trailer and return for the second. I've also read of some steep fines levied in Georgia along with a couple of bad stories of wrecks.

I was considering this until I researched it deeper. If your gonna do it and it's legal in your state, just do a quick check with your insurer!

Pulled my boat for the first time this past weekend after finally moving from a TT to a 5th wheel. Nothing to it! Tracks a lot better than I ever thought it would. Tugs a little on the bumps, but nothing like a TT does all the time. I had some walkie talkies for hunting and just had the Mrs. guide me back to hook up, but unhooked as needed to setup the trailer. Backing up that mess wouldn't be fun so keep that in mind when looking for gas. Drives throughs are also probably out of the question .

It's not legal in GA period the same for FL. With that said I have seen many triple tows going up and down I-75 in both GA and FL and the vast majority from states up North.

We have "double-towed" since we got our first FW, 1993. Here is a picture of our package getting ready to go up to Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park. If it works. Just copy and paste and it should come up just fine.

People double tow quite a bit in Georgia. Illegal in Florida but not to my knowledge in Georgia. I have a friend in the Dept of Hwy Safety in Georgia and he double tows all the time. I don't think he would be doing it if it were illegal.
