You have to unhook to back up more than about 10'. In Idaho I see people towing boats behind their campers all the time. We towed quads on a flat trailer behind our last 5th wheel and had no problems what so ever. One of the main reasons we bought our 330RLTS was so we could haul quads on the truck bed and eliminate the extra trailer.

I could be all wet, but my understanding of the law is that only 5th wheel or gooseneck trailers are allowed to tow a second trailer behind. The reason for this is for control of a sway event, just like the point made by Rustic Eagle.

Back when I was doing all that was required was to be under 75' and trailer had to have brakes. It really didn't tow to bad.

Depends on the state. Some require the first to be a fifth wheel, others allow two ball hitches.
