Apparently pulling tandem trailers with a car used to be legal in some states back in time as can be seen in the enlargeable photo below of a pair towed by a late-1950s Ford station wagon. Today it appears that only western states allow double trailers. We would imagine that backing up a rig like this is not very easy because any steering input from the tow vehicle for the front trailer would cause the second trailer to go the opposite direction, but it should balance out if done carefully. Have any of our readers towed a pair of trailers tell us about your experiences?
In New York State the tandem trailers have special parking lots on I-87 where many of the trailers are stored. Are these rigs restricted to traveling on interstate highways in the east?
