Trailer hitch attachment regulations?

I built a fishing rod/flag holder for when I go down to the beach. It is 73" long. I have searched high and low and can't find any regulations on size. Partially because I feel like I can't think of the right words while doing a web search. It's a 4 hour drive to the coast from where I live and I would hate to be half way there and get pulled over only to find out I can't drive with it. Does anyone know of size regulations in Texas or can help point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Does it stick out past the sides of the body? Does it extend more than 4feet past the bumper? Is it taller than 13feet 6inches?

If the answer to all these questions is no then you should be good to go. But if you still have questions contact your local police dept. and have them look at it, they will be happy to tell you what if anything needs to be changed.

Thank you for the information. I think I'll go ask the PD.
