RV boo-boos: A motorhome, a trailer, and a boat… What could go wrong?

The group that shared this photo may have shot the image in New Zealand. If so, we hope the practice won’t make its way to the U.S. Yeah, we’ve seen “doubles” with a fifth-wheel in combination, but never doubles trouble behind a motorhome, with everything hooked up with hitch balls.

Ha! I see this kind of rig all the time on I-25 in New Mexico. Usually going 90+ mph.

Here, as long as the total length of the tow vehicle and trailers is not longer then the maximum vehicle length (45 or 50 feet) and the tow vehicle and trailers are not overloaded, towing two trailers is perfectly legal.

The yellow line is on the left so it’s right hand driving, can’t be NZ!

If they are driving in New Zealand, that’s not their biggest problem, they are driving on the wrong side of the road.

It’s a 4 lane divided highway

They are on a 4 lane divided highway which means they are in the passing lane.

I especially like how the boat trailer is hooked up. Hope the car is strapped down.
