My first 3 way - 10.0

First time 3-way action. Solid 10.0 MPG for 180 miles one way.

i didn't think that was legal, unless the first tow was a fifth wheel.

Not only is it legal in WI, but as of 2012-ish I don't even need a permit. But there are rules, don't get me wrong. Overall length, within combined gross weight, the second trailer must be a recreational trailer (boat, ATV, motorcycle...etc...empty or loaded) for example. There are a few more.

It is legal in many other States as well. But for other States I haven't come across one that separates 5th wheels from TT's, not to say one doesn't exist.

The only separation I have come across is allowing people in the trailer. Some states allow people to travel within 5th wheel TT's! CRAZY!!!

Unfortunately we will not be seeing you in the state of Washington. They frown upon that setup.

All I see is a nice face with a plump middle section and a flat ass. Not exactly my dream candidate for my first threesome

Seriously though it's interesting. Here in NY I don't think you could get out of your driveway with that setup before receiving a fistful of tickets. Did you have any problems with trailer sway or any issues taking turns to short?

No sway and I never noticed it back there. That little 4x8 only weighs around 350lbs empty (230lbs without floor and sides). And it was short enough that it tracked behind the camper in turns much better than expected. It was a very uneventful trip, I didn't even get odd WTF looks from those passing me.

No triple tow / 3-way towing in Washington or New York...confirmed.

MPG....minutes per girl. Ha. I will have to steal that.

I can't tell if you have the limited or platinum model. Did you have any rear end sag before the WDH?

Limited.

Unloaded, the TW is about 400lbs, and it drops the rear enough, but not major. Driving without the WDH is horrible compared to with it applied. HUGE difference.

I have towed double single axles around town but not on a long trip.

Mexicans tow doubles all the time around these parts. Usually two flat towed broken down vehicles behind a slightly less broken down vehicle.... Your set up is miles better.
