Can I pull two trailers (for example, a boat behind a camper)?

A motor vehicle may draw two trailers. This would allow the towing of a boat trailer behind a gooseneck or bumper hitch camping trailer.

  • If the first trailer is a gooseneck or 5th wheel connection, the first trailer must be equipped with brakes, and the second trailer must be equipped with safety chains.
  • If the first trailer is a bumper hitch connection, the first trailer must be equipped with brakes and safety chains, and the second trailer must be equipped with safety chains at a minimum.  If the gross weight of the second trailer exceeds 3,000 pounds, brakes are also required.
