Towing length
#1
Saw this post in one of the FB groups. I didn't comment. Is this even legal?

"I am a full time RVer. I travel in a 40' Bus towing a 24' Trailer. Half of the time we boondock or camp free. Any help we can get to find free spots is great."

No, the name was Carolyn (it's a couple). Thanks for the answer - mostly just curious. But I can't imagine driving that on FS or BLM roads, at least the ones I have been on.

I ran across a website a few months ago that listed maximum total lengths allowed, by state, and some were under 55 feet.

Many semi trailers are over 53'

It depends on the classification of the tow vehicle.

About 37 states limit RVs (in any combination) to 65 feet bumper to bumper. Yes, many RVers break those laws every day...some of them brag about it on forums. Some RVers will actually get over-length permits so you really never know for sure who is legal or not legal just by looking. 

Commercial trucks involved in interstate commerce are under federal rules (not state laws) when it comes to length and weight when on federal highways, but may be subject to state laws when on non-federal highways...so, comparing semis and their trailers to what RVs are allowed to pull wont provide any real answers....because the rules and laws are so different.

I just know it’s going to be white knuckles and sweating and maybe even crying for me all the way out to AZ in this monster with a trailer. Lots of other people do it and I suppose I can get used to it... maybe.. shit.

Nah, Camilla, you’re a badass. It’ll feel weird for a bit, then fun as hell!
