Question need info on Oregon traffic laws

Here in Idaho, we can hook up the camping trailer, and with a hitch, can also hook up our jeep or our boat and head out. We need no special license to do this. There are places in Oregon we would like to visit and take both our camp trailer and jeep, and was wondering if Oregon allows this ? If so, is there a length restriction ? When I pull our trailer and boat together, I'm stretched out about 42 ft.

I decided to do a search on my own, and found that Oregon isn't one of the states that allow triple towing, so I guess my idea is out

You can tow triple in Oregon if you have Idaho plates.

I don't know the exact deal with it, but I have been told you need to have brakes on the towed units and a doubles endorsement on your license, and are restricted to the same routes as the big boys when doing it. If your state does not require endorsements, you might be alright. Best to call state police for the definative answer, and record who you talked to and when.
