We have neighbours, former Albertans, who own a truck camper solely for fishing trips because they can't tow their aluminum fishing boat (which can't be anymore than 800 lbs including motor and trailer) behind their 5th wheel in this province.

I believe that in many jurisdictions, the "tow trailer" must be a fifth wheel type.

In Arizona it is legal if the trailer is a 5th wheel and the total length is 65 feet or less. People can ride in the 5th wheel and the max speed limit is 75 MPH.

Yes. It's only legal in Minnesota if the trailer is a 5th wheel. Let's see 'em try to launch the boat at a ramp though!

How about the gas tank in the original Beetles. Wait -- that's wrong. Spare tire. Then gas tank.
