There are states in the US that allow people to ride in 5th Wheel Trailers while they are going down the road unfortunately Florida is not one of those states. There are also some states that allow passengers to ride in Travel Trailers while they are going down the road but again Florida is not among those states. Some states have requirements you have to meet in order to do this so you should check your local state laws for those requirements. Look below for more details.

States That Allow Riders In Travel Trailers: Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas*, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and North Carolina.

* Some restrictions check state law.

States That Allow Riders In 5th Wheel Trailers: Arizona, California*, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas*, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon*, Pennsylvania*, South Dakota*, West Virginia and Wisconsin*.

Since we are on this subject I thought it would be important to include a video tutorial done by a couple of famous Movie and TV stars on how to safely operate a trailer. You should have a pencil and paper available so you can write down the important safety tips provided in this video.

:-) OK as you have probably figured out by now this was not a tutorial at all, but was actually a clip from 1954's Movie The Long, Long Trailer starring Lucille Ball and her husband, Desi Arnaz. I hope you learned something from watching and that you took good notes.
