Question for the “heavy haulers”
Well actually two questions.
1. What is involved in “combination” registering your truck to pull a trailer over 10k. can I register a gmc 2500hd to be legal pulling a 14k gvw trailer?
2. This one I’ve never been given a straight answer on even from the “dmv”. What license is required to pull a trailer over 10k when the combo is under 26000. I know that sounds odd but a regular “class c” license says combo under 26k w/ trailer less than 10k, class be is single or combo over 26 w/ trailer under 10, and a class a is over 26k with a trailer over 10k. They act like a truck and trailer with a combined gave under 26k but with the trailer over 10k doesn’t happen, but is does every day. My BIL alone has three 10k plus trailers that he pulls with a one ton dually that is combo registered to 21k. He has a class a commercial license so he can drive about anything other than a tanker. There are tons of fifth wheel campers and horse trailers on the road every day and I know almost none of the drivers have a class a license. I’ve been told lots of different answers but none were able to be verified by any document. I’ve even been given contradictory answers from two state cops.
