2 bumper pull trailers in MN?

8 posts in this topic

I know you can pull a bumper pull behind a 5th wheel in MN, but I heard they changed the law to allow you pull a bumper pull behind a bumper pull as long as it is under so many ft long. Anybody know anything about this?

That doesnt make any sense because you cant pull a bumper pull trailer behind another bumper pull, so why would it be legal to pull two of them in tandum with a fifth wheel in front of them?

He's not saying you can pull 2 bumper pulls behind a 5th wheel,he is saying that if you had a bumper pull camper that you could pull a boat behind that. Dozer, I doubt that this would be legal because thats putting alot of pulling weight on the receiver hitch,as were with a fifth wheel your pulling from the frame

I dont think they will ever pass something like this, nor do I think they should. As SS stated it just wouldnt be that safe. I thought I seen last year that they were going to modify the current law and make the total length longer so you could pull a 28 foot camper and a decent sized boat with a 5th wheel.

we have a 23' 5th wheel and a 16ft boat behind a Sierra 1500 with overloads and it was plenty long for me!

have not heard that. do not think it would go thru, that is way too much weight on that style hitch. I hit 55 ft with my trailer and boat behind it, long enough.

I have seen this idea tossed around many times. Is it possiable.....sure I guess, we have a 34 ft. airstream and on the back could mount a ball hitch to haul a 16 ft boat. Now is it legal and safe....Probably NOT. Now I do not know if MN allows ball hitch to ball hitch towing, now trailering a 5th wheel and say a boat or another trailer behind that is just fine. MN state law I believe is 70 ft total vehicle and trailer length without a permit. I will have to admit though I have never seen it listed that you can not do this. Now myself no I wouldn't attempt it, I would have to think it would not be very safe, a weight distrabution hitch, sway control, and brake control would be a must on the first trailer. I would really like to know what the law is though, maybe someone will do some digging to find out for sure.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
