I've actually looked into it. Not legal to do though.

About 20 minutes to set up. Search youtube for keithert for a video of setup. Canvas was made by bear creek canvas. They did a great job.

My son slept in it for the last week before school started. My wife and I alternated nights in it with him. It is pretty comfortable.

You can usually pull a trailer behind a fifth wheel, but not two bumper pulls at once.

And there's, typically, an overall length limit.

In 2009, "Automobile Magazine" published a map of states that do and do not allow double trailer towing; when published, the only states that did not allow double towing were: Washington, Oregon, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Hawaii.

Ironically, I just saw a car with Quebec plates towing a tandem trailer in Vermont.

WTH...Oregon's on there too, and I see it all the time out here.

(maybe they finally changed it, or it's just the visiting Californian's who couldn't care less )

Damn, I see those and think they must spend time scouting camps before they go.

Wonder what an emergency stop would be like in that rig.
