    Towing doubles

    My husband and I will be changing our set up in the next few months. I've read several posts about pulling a horse trailer behind a camper. My situation should be the opposite.

    First, we will be towing with a semi. Can you legally pull a bumper pull camper behind a gooseneck horse trailer behind a semi? We would NOT be pulling the horse trailer of any kind behind the camper, in other words, the horses would not be pulled last.

    We have considered a living quarters, but we live in our camper/rv year round, making our living using the semi. ( Yes my husbands cdl allows doubles and triples) Not limited to, but mostly in Arizona and Montana. Since we live in our rv at all times, would like to select something with a little more room than a living quarters unless we want to spend an enormous amount on one that provides that much space.

    Is it legal?

    On some interstates, it is legal but others not. Going through most cities, it is not. You might have time restrictions when you can travel through others. (Denver was such a city but not positive now) You also do not want to have to unhook your camper to get to the horses in an emergency situation but you also do not want them at then end where there is going to be the most sway. You need to rethink the trailer with living quarters. You can easily spend $75K on a nice rig but it is that time of year when the trailer market is pretty good for buyers. A new 3 horse GN is going to run $20K bare bones. A friend recently sold her low mileage 3 horse, 13ft shortwall with one slideout for $55K.

    There's a reason you do not see this configuration with haulers. It's even unusual to see truck+ camper+ boat on the road.
