Some states will allow it, but you are getting into a new world of brake requirements on the tow vehicle and first trailer. The additional weight also makes it cost more to pull, take longer to stop, and parking places harder to find.

Depends on the state. Different State DOT's have different regulations. Some don't allow it period, some require you to have a different license to tandem tow. You definitely need to contact the DOTs of the states you're going to be traveling in. Keep in mind how the semi's perform this task. They use large converter dollies that support all of the tongue weight of the second trailer. Without one of these dollies, the tongue weight of the second trailer is resting on the first trailer, behind the rear axle. This will significantly reduce the tongue weight of the first trailer. Too little tongue weight will cause the first trailer to sway behind the truck. Since there is another trailer, that second hitch point, an additional pivot point, will in effect magnify the sway.

Nope, it would be too long plus you would not be able to control it..
