This is the label on my factory hitch installed on my 2010 26ft Cruiser 5th wheel.

Sorry unable to get image to load.

The label states max tongue weight is 300# and max GVWR for trailer is 3000#

Thanks, rcflyer, that is what I am looking for, unfortunately my hitch does not have a label and I can not find anything on the owners manual (owners manual leaves a lot to be desired). This is what my hitch looks like, is it similar to yours?
thanks

Wow, the manufacturer misspelled tongue on the label.

I suspect the hitch was made in China like most items on our trailers. Maybe the Chinese had a very old translation dictionary.

It depends by state. In my state of SD max length is 70í. Some are up to 80í.

Crazy as it sounds some States even allow the front trailer to be a bumper pull outfit!

I double tow an enclosed trailer behind my Fiver.

I find that a rear camera on my Fiver is very valuable when towing double. It really lowers the stress level.

As mentioned before plan on trailer brakes but most importantly a sway bar.

I donít care how straight you think you can drive....the coach likes to move in cross winds and your second trailer will sway like mad with out a sway bar to slow it all down.

Every state has their own rules unless DOT commercial.
In CA, you must have a commercial Class A license, be no longer then 65', and have trailer brakes if trailer exceeds 2,500 lbs.
In addition, most states have reciprocity to allow a driver from another state, to stay within the laws of their original state.

In your case, as a neighbor, Colorado isn't one of them
