I have talked to several Folks who Double Tow who have asked LEOs about it and the general answer is that they have other Bigger Fish to go after. So for the most part if everything is properly licensed and all safety equipment in place you won't get bothered, BUT there is always that possibility.

Years ago my in laws were traveling with friends towing a boat behind their travel trailer, which I don't think was legal then or now, & got stopped about 100 miles shy of the state line, don't remember which state, & had to leave the boat til they crossed tbe line & come back for it, they never towed it again after that trip.

One of the things that helped swing my decision to buy the RW was that it had the 3K hitch on the back. I tow a RZR on a 10' aluminum trailer behind mine. It is very common here in Utah to see double tows.

Larry,
This is exactly what I will be doing. RZR on a 10 foot trailer. I live in Colorado and want to travel to Utah with my RZR, but worry about being over the 65 feet allowed in Utah. What is your total length? 70 feet is the max allowed here in Colorado.

Thanks,
Dan

Dan,

I just looked it up and officially it is 65 feet. That said, I see all kinds of rigs double towing with boats etc. I have never seen or heard of anyone having been pulled over because of this and I am sure many of them are over. My friend pulls a 14 footer behind him with a four seat Wildcat and has had no issue either.

I tow with a Crew Cab long bed truck.

There is a regular flow of triple tows with boats out of Colorado to Lake Powell in Utah including us at one time @ over 76'. I haven't heard of anyone having trouble, at least that far west into Utah.

Well - the journey so far has been through all the east coast states from Maryland to Florida. Both on Interstates and rural highways, troopers and local LEO. Nobody gave us a second look other than the two that gave me a thumbs up.

Have been in some tight spots, one that I had to drop car so I could back up and get out of (takes 2 minutes to drop car and pull away, same to hook up).
Am I happy with results ? A resounding yes. Looking forward to exploring Tampa and mobile and New Orleans it's a small car and not a Dually.

Thought I'd post a quick update. Have now been along th Gulf Coast as far as New Orleans on both interstates and also US 90 through towns. No officials give us any interest including local and State. More interest from other RV'ers and from every campground "expert" who tells me I'm going to get ticketed and how unsafe the rig is. The last one that told me that was towing a big Voltage Toy Hauler with a F250. I politely mentioned that he might want to run through a CAT scale and let me know how overweight he was and then we would talk about my rig that isn't and guaranteed will out brake him.

Picture is the "fleet" at Topsail Hill State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, FL

I showed your picture to my wife and told her I want to start towing her little KIA Soul behind the RW. The look she gave me was not good. If I was going long distance and staying in one spot for a longer period I would have not issue pulling a small car behind. When pulling 4 down you most likely don't even know it is there. Well that is until you turn a corner and see it in the mirror

Only way I can tell it's behind us is to look in camera or see it in a turn. Mpg penalty is .5 mpg, I'll take the trade off to have it with us.

The Kia Soul was one I looked at seriously but it's only flat towable if manual trans. Focus is approved by Ford either trans. And it weighs the right amount.
