Anyone know how we can find out which US states allow double trailers? I love this idea but don't feel it will be permissalbe in Florida.
If you Google "state towing laws", you will find lots of matches. Many companies associated with towing (selling hitches, etc) post some version of a list, and I suspect most are pulled from the same source. I also suspect that most have errors, and are out of date. The one from LoadRite is in the Excel file format, which could be convenient if you have Microsoft Excel available. The LoadRite list, by the way, says "No" for two trailers in Florida.

I would check with an authoritative source (such as the state or provincial government web site's posting of actual regulations) for destinations of particular interest.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Tongue weight on the Scamp is probably about 125 to 15o LBS--I can lift it but nut much

Weight on the boat is about 80 pounds--pulls like a dream.

Been gone for the last six weeks or so off the web, yep fishing............. Working some and hitting the regional 3-D archery shoots in Libby, Helena and Clearwater.

Going to have to put a new axle on the Scamperoony in a couple of weeks and after some deliberation am going with the leaf springs and straight axle. I like the torsion axle but if it needs replacement as now the whole thing needs to come off.

I'll beef the frame up and install gussets for ridigity... I'll take some photos and post them.


And Bailey I did not get the PM.
