Double towing is only legal behind a 5th wheel rig in California and I am sure other states follow the same rule that you can't double tow with a "Bumper Pull" first trailer.

Actually there are quite a few places where you can double tow behind a straight-pull trailer.

The Bigfoot 21 footer for sale in Texas and shown in the "for sale' section of this site includes pix of it pulling another trailer behind it

I have seen "double tow" rigs - usually a straight-pull TT with a boat on another trailer behind in Saskatchewan

I've seen (and read about even more) accidents where there was a double tow. See a lot of them in Utah-travel trailer, then a toy trailer behind it. Accidents happen as the 2nd trailer rarely has brakes. Great sway potential too.

It's not an egg but saw this piece of work a few years ago. Hope he didn't have far to go. Ford Ranger was the TV.

If I saw that and couldn't get ahead of it, the next words heard would be "GPS recalculating route"
Probably why so many jurisdictions ban this

Even if you can, why would you want to?
