Question Triple towing? 2 trailers behind your coach?

I know people tow with their truck and some off roading fun like ATVs and motorcycles, or maybe with their vehicle and boat. I've heard it's legal in quite a few states to tow 2 trailers at the same time. Does anyone here have experience with triple towing? I would love to know how that worked out for you. Anyone know what states allow triple towing?

If you do decide to tow two trailers, be sure to follow all state laws and safety measures.

We know of some locals who tow a triple set up just like this. Sometimes it's their toys and sometimes their dredging equipment. Never tried it ourselves.

Derek, is this your rig shown in the picture. If so, I would like to know your rigging for the trailer. Since it has only two wheels, I assume brakes are not required, and you only have to connect lights to both the towed car and tariler, and brakes to the car only. Any other information would be appreciated. Frankly, I am surprised at how many Western states allow triple towing.

Chester not my rig in the picture. I had actually seen a rig going down the road similar to this and it made me think about how well it worked out for people. So I thought I would ask here to see if anyone would share experiences. I don't own a coach but I'm looking and learning as I go.
