Are double and triple trailers legal in Kansas?

Yes.

Doubles may be pulled anywhere, so long as the trailers are not over 28 ½ feet in length each, except on the Kansas Turnpike, where double 53-foot trailers are legal.

Triple trailers are only allowed on the Kansas Turnpike with a “special vehicle combination” (SVC) annual permit (KAR 36-1-28).  Turnpike access routes include all routes between the Turnpike and a motor freight terminal located within a 10-mile radius of each toll booth, except at the northeastern end of the Turnpike where a 20-mile radius is allowed. SVC access routes include all routes between the Interstate and a motor freight terminal located within 5 miles of the Interstate at Goodland.
