Jeep double trailing

Has anybody done double trailing a 15' boat and a jetski?
I phoned a local authority, he told me that only something like F150 or above is allowed to double trailing. My Jeep is just a SUV!!!!!!!!

This is absolutely unacceptable! LoL.

But has anybody done double trailing behind a Jeep?

I have pulled a 12' pop up camper followed by an 8' double kayak trailer behind my 2 door JK. No issues with trailing or the law. I seriously doubt there is a regulation stating a minimum size for the towing vehicle. As long as you do not exceed the tow rating of your vehicle it should be legal. In Indiana there is a regulation for the maximum length of what is being towed (single and tandem towing) and also a combined overall length. I would do more research because I don't believe your source.

In many states, when towing doubles, the front towed trailer must be a 5th wheel,
and out weigh the rear trailer. While it might b legal in indiana, check b4 u cross a state line. Its not legal in michigan.

All states have an overall length limit, usually between 53 and 65 ft.

u really wanna pull doubles behind a jk?
Towing with a short wheelbase, even one trailer aint great!
The tail wagging the dog on a jk might not end well!

I have a boat and ski. My two vehicles both can tow.
But it would be nice if the whole family can be in one vehicle while traveling.

Anywhere it is legal, it is still stupid.
