Texas Length Limits For Vehicles

We found two helpful resources about length limits for vehicles in the State of Texas.  The first was this article: Trailer Towing Rules in Texas

Here is a portion from that article:


No more than three vehicles can be towed behind one tow vehicle using the “saddle-mount” method, whereby the front wheels are mounted on another vehicle’s bed, leaving its rear wheels on the ground (Section 545.409). It is typically illegal to allow a child younger than 18 to ride in a flat-bed trailer; one example of an exemption is if riding in a parade. It is also generally illegal for a truck or tractor to pull a trailer with passengers; though, if the trailer is designed for human habitation, this action is allowed.

The next resource is from the State of Texas website titled “Length Limits For Vehicles & Vehicle Combinations.”  It comes from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (Nov 2019).  You may find that PDF here:
