    We can pull them in Oregon on most state highways and freeways and I know you can't pull 3 in the state of Washington.

    Heard there were 11 states that trips could be pulled as long as it's a 4 lane.....

    Colorado allows it. I'm not aware of any restrictions. I even saw big rigs--don't remember UPS doing it but its possible--pulling two 48' trailers. THAT was something to behold. -Rocky

    they are called turbpike doubles...i dont think they are legal in many states...the dollys have 8 wheels instead of 4


    and thats a UPS set of triples behind it

    here in indiana, triples are only allowed on the toll road.....ive pulled doubles and wouldnt really want to pull triples

    We (not me, not worthy yet) pull double 45' trailers here, out through NY on I-90.

    Same dolly as the 28' doubles.

    Yep! That's exactly what it looks like. I was awed the first time I saw it on I-25 south of Denver near Colorado Springs as a Target Greatland distribution run. Again, I never saw UPS pulling two 48' that I can recall. There are a couple posters here that either work for UPS as feeder / package car drivers in Colorado OR have family that do. I'll yield to them on UPS' practices if they know.

    Sounds right on all counts. I read a post on BC by a feeder driver in Colorado that mentioned triples. This was a couple years ago, by the way. S/he said that a driver could decline to pull triples but I don't recall if there was a weather factor included in that. Regardless, I have enough trouble driving a sedan. I can't imagine driving a semi, never mind one pulling doubles or trips! lol. -Rocky

    They were probably 45'ers.

    No triples or double 48' (or are the 45') in NJ, they do run double 48' on the NY Thruway, UPS only seems to run them on the I-90 portion, (the thruway is I-87 to Albany, then it makes a left turn and becomes I-90), they used to run them from the NJ line to Albany, they use the single axle or 4 wheel dolly. I think they are the 847xxx trailers. They have the pintle hitch on the back like the 28' pups do.

    Interesting. Did not know this about Wyoming. I would think that with all that 'wide open country,' it would be legal. Wyoming of all places, I would think it would be legal.

    I can't tell the difference! lol. I'm guessing its the trailer numbers that tell the tale? -Rocky

    Wyoming allows "rocky sets". A 45' and a 28'. Nevada, Idaho, and Utah all allow triple pups and double 45's.
