is CA the only state that limits Class C drivers to under 10k gross? I can get an endorsement for 10-15k RV trailers (5th wheel) but not for equipment trailers.

I need a Class A just for a 14k gooseneck and it must be a full commercial version, not a non-commercial version. It can have the "no tractor trailer" exclusion though. The non-com works for RVs, again, but not goosenecks.

It totally sucks.

Any other states like this, or is it typical BS that is CA?

Man thats gay! Must be a CA communist thing! :bigthumb:

In TN you can get a permanent trailer tag for anything from a 4ft tag along trailer to a 40' gooseneck. No kinda weight restrictions or anything. Its a one time fee of (i think) $90 and good for the life of the trailer.

MD you can pull anything the truck is weighted for as long as it isn't commercial (as I recall). If it is comm you can't do anything over 10k without a class A.

My big enclosed say NOT FOR HIRE and may be de-decalling the truck... Also looking into what I need to register it as an RV once I build the living qaurters.

Cali blows.... you should see some of the stuff in PA.

I passed a lifted Dodge, with a 30'+ gooseneck, with a trailer hitch welded on the back of the gooseneck pulling another trailer....

most places in the world that would be a Class A double..... but he's doing 75mph down the highway without a care in the world....

Do you do it with a factory installed hitch in the camper?? or just something you welded to the dovetail?
