Hi: Paul O... In some jurisdictions once a 5th. wheel is hooked up it becomes part of the tow vehicle. A second trailer with a boat on it then becomes possible.

Not true on the "illegal" part. More states allow it than forbid it.
But I agree that doesn't make it safe or wise.

I don't understand what you mean by illegal. Are boats not allowed to be transported on top of TV's? or do you mean putting one boat on top of another on top of the TV?

no no no - that's not it. That comment was about the triple-tow thread. Re-read the post Steve is referring to.

If your home state does not allow double bottom towing it's going to be tough to leave home with your boat behind your trailer.

When I did my research many years back it was only allowed in a few southern states and some sparsely populated western states We wanted to double tow a couple of 18 ft fishing boats from Minnesota to Canada We were told it was illegal so we abandoned the idea.
Thank you for the update
